The Elmbank Hotel

Plumbing // Heating

The Elmbank Hotel is a historical 19th Century Townhouse that undertook a complete refurbishment in 2019 with all existing services stripped right back to the source. We were given the job of carrying out the full design and install of the hot and cold system, drainage and the heating system.

All room sizes, corridor lengths and number of rooms were take in to account when designing the job.

This consisted of a new Boosted cold water system with pump set and 6000L storage tank in the basement to provide a minimum of 2 bar at all outlets and to also cope with the peak demand of usage. The Hot Water system involved the siting and install of 2 x 300L gas fired Andrews Water Heaters with a secondary return which provides instant hot water at outlets that was regulated in the bedrooms to 43 degrees via the use of Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs).

A new Heating System was installed consisting of a full plant room design to satisfy the heat output required for all rooms which included 1 x 80kw system boiler and low loss header to feed cast iron radiators and column radiators throughout. We were also asked to undertake the strip out of existing fireplaces and install of new gas fired remote controlled to match in with the existing d├ęcor of the building.

All bedrooms were fitted to the highest standard with top of the range fixtures and fittings to match in with the Victorian look throughout the building. New Drainage runs were fitted back to the underground drainage.

All of our work was tested and signed off upon completion of the works with all relevant certificates and drawings updated and plant manuals and warranties handed to the client in the O&M manuals. Client was walked through the job to familiarise themselves with how all systems work.
