Case study

Heating Upgrade Downsway School

An image of the Downsway Primary School badge, Anchor performed a boiler installation and replaced the heating system and pipework of the school in Reading.

Downsway Primary School had major issues with their school boiler and heating pipework.

West Berkshire Council proposed to strip out and replace all heating pipework emitters during the spring and summer of 2015. The works also included the strip out of the boiler room, with new energy efficient boilers and controls replacing 20 to 45 year old plant.

The heating system that served the main school building was replaced, in addition to a new service extended into the adjoining prefabricated building. This gave the school the benefit of heating and localised control. Anchor also carried out survey work, produced working drawings and ordered materials for the site.

The installation was carried out around school operations, with daytime working in holiday periods and evening working in school term time. Hot, cold and tanked water services remained operational throughout, ensuring that the kitchen, toilets, showers and school facilities remained operational at all times.

The project was completed on time and budget in September 2015.
