The Place Kings Cross

Located in the heart of London, The Place is a creative powerhouse for dance development that is leading the way in dance training, creation and performance. One of Europe’s most exciting, innovative dance spaces, where artists from all over the world come to push creative boundaries and to perform outstanding new work for audiences who expect to be surprised, inspired and delighted.

With the buildings existing heating plant beyond economical repair, the decision was made to update the LTHW and HWS equipment during the summer of 2013.

6No stainless steel Ethos 130kW condensing boilers were installed in a basement plantroom by long standing contractor Claremore Mechanical Services of London. The Ethos boilers provide a total modulation of 60 > 1 (780 > 13kW) and Nox levels of 33mg/kw. In addition a Mikrovent 750 low loss header and air/dirt separator intercepts particles down to 5 microns on the existing primary circuit.

The heavy HWS demand was covered by the installation of 2No Extreme 500 litre loading cylinders each capable of producing in excess of 2570 litres hr at 60°C. The loading cylinders maximise the boilers condensing efficiency by operating at a ∆t of 30°C across the primary CT circuit.

The new mechanical plant was specified by building services consultant Peter Flower Design of Wellingborough.
