Ideal Commercial Boilers has supplied Evomod modular condensing boilers for installation in a world first in multi-faith education.
The joint faith campus in Newton Mearns, Glasgow replaced an existing Jewish school and provides additional primary school provision for the local Catholic community. The building boasts a shared amphitheatre and outdoor obstacle trails, as well as sports pitches, first-class ICT facilities, modern teaching spaces, an impressive library and state of the art science laboratories.
Forming an integral part of the £18.2million project, Ideal Commercial was selected from a tender panel of manufacturers to provide a high output boiler solution capable of delivering 1.5MW in an unusually small footprint. Boasting stainless-steel heat exchangers, two 3-module Evomod boilers, each providing an output of 750kW, were installed using a combined flue header for all three modules of each boiler, complete with flow return pipework for quick installation.
The installation was carried out by Marmac Services Ltd. Christopher McCall, their Operations Director, takes up the story: “Working closely with the main contractor, we were able to install the Evomod system quickly and efficiently, with no delays caused to other onsite trades. Being of modular design, the boiler was easier to install in the tight spaces available during the later stages of the project.”
Ideal Commercial only supply their boilers through distribution, which had added benefits for Marmac. “Like all Ideal Commercial boiler systems, costing the specified products was straightforward, with the merchant able to assist in the specification process. I have worked with Ideal Commercial in the past and had nothing but positive results.”
The school is already reaping the benefits of its Evomax boilers. “Marmac Services has taken on one of the maintenance contracts within the school and we have been updated continually on the boilers’ energy efficiency. We have had only positive results”, explains Christopher.
Ideal Commercial Boilers’ Country Manager for Scotland and Northern Ireland, Charlie Newell, comments on the success of the project: “This project is one we’re extremely proud to be part of. Given the heating requirements of the building and the limited square footage of the plant room, Evomod was the perfect specification choice for this building design.”
