School Heating Refurbishments
A number of schools have had various parts of their heating systems refurbished. This has varied from the replacement of existing heating boilers, to the replacement of distribution pipework which provides heat to the radiators.
Works are prioritised based on the age and condition of the existing systems, and the effects of a possible failure. Similarly, where existing boilers are oil fired, these are changed to gas to ensure the new systems are more environmentally friendly and much cheaper to operate.
Where possible, systems are installed in such a way to provide some resilience against nuisance breakdowns and help reduce the possibility of school closures during term time.
