M&E Project Value: £600k
Project Duration: 25 weeks

The energy centre served a total of 251 apartments with a 190kw therm CHP operating as lead heat generation backed up by another circa 1.5Mw of boilers. The installation had to be completed within a 20-week programme to facilitate the occupancy of the apartments. Pipework was pre-fabricated off-site to minimise site installation time. The energy centre has a complex metering system to enable the ESCO to bill occupiers accurately.
