Project Description

Full mechanical design and build package was designed for Burton rugby club. The scope included the feasibility of renewables. Our design team and the client worked closely together to investigate different types of renewables, it was then decided to settle with ground source heat pumps as this would achieve the best possible running costs and the fact that due to the RHI incentive, the installation would pay itself off after 14 years making the rugby club profit for 6 years through the RHI incentive scheme.
The installation consisted of 12no 120m vertical boreholes, a centralised plant room consisting of

• Heat pump
• thermal store
• plate heat exchanger
• Sterilisation HWS cylinder
• Pumps

The centralised plant room provides hot water and heating. The heating distributes to 7no under-floor heating manifolds covering an area of 949 m2. The hot water is generated instantaneously to 42 degrees via the thermal store and plate heat exchanger during peak showering times which provides hot water to 6 changing room shower blocks, a kitchen and a male and female toilet. The sterilisation cylinder within the plant room is to lift the internal temperature of the hot water system back to 65 degrees aft a peak demand from the showers.
A centralised air handling unit is installed in the main bar/function area to provide heat-recovered fresh air that runs on a trickle. This is linked to a CO2 monitor that boosts the unit when the Co2 levels increase. The toilets and changing rooms have in-line fans with barrel-type grilles to allow the extraction of stale air
