MHS goes into Battle
Two Ultramax WM100 wall mounted high-performance condensing boilers from MHS have been installed at a new visitor centre at Battle Abbey, East Sussex. The visitor centre provides orientation and interpretation facilities, new visitor toilets and a café, together with new landscaping within the Abbey grounds. The building follows the slope of the site and is built from Sussex Sandstone, brick and stainless steel and has a fully glazed façade in the café.
The visitor centre, which is run by English Heritage, has a building management system to ensure the most efficient use of energy. The boilers were specified for their high performance – 95% gross seasonal efficiencies – as well as for their ability to modulate their output according to the system load. Additionally, each Ultramax WM100 boiler delivers a high output of 100kW, and thanks to their ease of installation and range of flue options, were able to fit in a confined boiler plant room.
Battle Abbey was founded in 1070 when William the Conqueror vowed to build a monastery at Battle as an act of penance for the violence of the Conquest. The high altar was placed on the spot where it was said that King Harold died.
The installation was specified by Dominic Shortland of GDA Associates, Brenchley, Kent and completed by BSW Heating of Haywards Heath, Sussex.
