BCoT,  a Further Education College in Basingstoke, Hampshire with over 7,000 students and teachers had been suffering over-heating in its teaching and lecture rooms during peak summer time over a number of years. BTU was appointed to design and install new heating and cooling systems to serve the South side campus.

 


Challenges

 

As the majority of the works were taking place whilst the college and offices were occupied, BTU had to ensure that the areas where work was taking place were clearly separated from staff and pupils and that there was minimal disruption to the college timetable.   BTU’s site team worked closely with the college authorities and installing fencing and solid wood hoarding to separate corridors from live working environments. Alternative entrances were created and work was undertaken in 3 phases.

Heating and Cooling Project

 

This was a comprehensive project and involved completely stripping out, upgrading and replacing the existing cooling system, repositioning external condensers, re-routing external underground gas main and construction of new Acoustic Chiller Enclosure.  Plus the installation of new LED lighting throughout the building, removal and replacement of ceilings, replacing existing main door with a Diffusion ‘Oasis’ LPHW door curtain and testing and commissioning of the complete integrated system.

Works undertaken included:

  • Asbestos survey and removal – before any other work could begin.
  • Redundant services  - were stripped out and disposed of.
  • Acoustic enclosure for external chiller units  – designed and constructed.
  • New Chiller and Chilled Water Pipework – this was installed leaving an allowance to extend at a later date.
  • New LPHW secondary circuit – installed to connect the new FCUs with the existing main heating plant.
  • Existing Siemens BMS control system – was modified and added to, to control and monitor the new LPHW Heating and Chilled Water Installations.
  • Thermal insulation – was installed to all new chilled water and LPHW circulation pipework.
