A low-carbon Remeha biomass heating system has helped achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for the MRC-University of Glasgow international Centre for Virus Research at its new £10.4m research and teaching centre, the Sir Michael Stoker Building. M&E Consultant Arup specified a Remeha Gilles HPKI-K 240kW Pellet Biomass boiler in conjunction with a Remeha Gas 610 Eco Pro high-efficiency gas condensing boiler to provide reliable, low-carbon heating in compliance with Part L of Building Regulations.
M&E Contractor Scott Winton of Crown House said, “I was impressed with the overall build quality of the boilers and the technical support provided by Remeha from delivery through to handover.”
While the striking design of the Sir Michael Stoker Building by architect Sheppard Robson reaffirms Glasgow University’s status as one of the UK’s leading centres of research and education, the Remeha biomass heating system further complements the sustainable approach of the project.
Mr Winton added, “We were pleased with the full service and in-depth client training that Remeha provided, engaging with the Universities Estates department to deliver in-depth client training covering the operation and maintenance procedures of the biomass boiler. Both the biomass and gas boilers have proved to be reliable since commissioning.”
