The project aimed to modernise these vital components of the 30 bedroom boutique hotel, ensuring optimal functionality and energy efficiency throughout the expansive club premises.

The Challenge

The challenge was in optimising the energy efficiency of the gas boiler system to provide reliable heating and hot water while minimising energy consumption and operational costs being the building is in use 24hrs a day 365 days a year,

Compliance with safety regulations is paramount, particularly in the operation of gas boilers. Ensuring that the system meets or exceeds safety standards to prevent accidents or gas leaks is crucial, noting the intended usage as fire station.

Achieving efficient ventilation on each floor through a central heat recovery unit posed challenges. Proper distribution of fresh air while recovering heat from exhaust air requires a well-designed and maintained system.

Coordinating the operation of the gas boiler and central heat recovery unit to meet varying demands for heating, hot water, and ventilation requires a sophisticated control system. Integration challenges arose in achieving optimal performance from both systems simultaneously.

The Solution

New high-efficiency gas boiler cascade was deployed. This included the installation of condensing boilers that captures and utilises heat from flue gases, improving overall energy efficiency.

For future implement a proactive maintenance schedule for the gas boiler system, including regular inspections, cleaning, and calibration. Install monitoring systems to detect and address any issues promptly, ensuring continuous and safe operation was required.

Optimisation of the central heat recovery unit for effective ventilation involved ensuring proper air distribution to each floor with careful duct design to suit the structural constraints of the building

Implementation of smart building control systems that integrate the gas boiler and ventilation systems allowed for centralised control, real-time monitoring, and adaptive adjustments based on occupancy and environmental conditions.

The integration of a high-efficiency gas boiler for heating and hot water, coupled with an optimised central heat recovery unit for ventilation, was essential for Malvern Fire Station's functionality. Overcoming challenges through the adoption of energy-efficient technologies, rigorous maintenance, safety protocols, and smart building controls ensures the station's readiness, energy efficiency, and the well-being of its occupants.
