With the need for more school places at an all-time high, a brand new five form entry school constructed by Jerram Falkus has been built in Hounslow, West London. The second phase of the build will include 284 mixed-tenure homes including affordable housing.

Building services consultants Baily Garner LLP delivered a fully designed M&E project which incorporated Mikrofill equipment. The schools LPHW/HWS demand was met by the selection of 3No Ethos FS 350 kW twin burner condensing boilers. Installed by long standing contractor R & H Building Services Ltd, the stainless steel boilers provide a collective turn down ratio of 60 > 1 (1050 > 17.5 kW), produce as little as 31mg/kw of Nox and can be installed as close as 50mm apart from one another.

The domestic hot water demand throughout this large primary school is catered for by 2 No WRAS approved Extreme 500 litre loading cylinders. With a primary input of 120kW at 80°c, each cylinder can produce in excess of 2500 l/hr at 60°C. Installed with unvented kits the cylinders maximise the efficiency of the Ethos boilers by ensuring a Δt of 30°C on the primary circuit (80/50°C).

The existing school continued operation during the site redevelopment with the new school being occupied in September 2018.
