Vertex recently project managed and completed installation of new heating systems, including commercial boilers from Hamworthy, at two buildings which form part of the Inner Temple, one of the four ancient Inns of Court in London.
The Paper Buildings 1 & 2 (so-called because of their original timber, lath and plaster construction in the early 1600s – though rebuilding took place in the 1830s) remained occupied throughout the duration of the 10-week project.
The systems incorporated 98 radiators throughout the two buildings. To respect the buildings’ ambiance and décor all pipework was run on the surface, with pipes above 15mm being boxed and painted. Smaller pipes and radiators were painted gloss white. A specialist was called in to make good ceiling cornices affected by the work.
Each boilerhouse was made water-tight by a specialist rendering company to ensure protection for underground rooms below.
On completion Vertex installed and commissioned new control panels incorporating Trend IQ BMS.
Going foreword, Vertex has secured the annual ongoing maintenance contract for this site for air conditioning and heating systems across the Inner Temple estate.
