We were the main contractor for the refurbishment of the Elmwood Avenue plant room for QUB which supplies heat to a number of buildings and departments within the University, including Guthrie House, the Learning and Teaching Centre and the School of Geography, Archaeology and Paleoecology.

The new boilers installed provided fast and efficient heating for the various and not only integrates this plant room into the wider QUB system but also provides a detailed focus on energy usage.

Building works consisted of structural openings through walls to facilitate the installation of new boiler flues / air intake louvres.  In addition, we carried out a complete renovation of internal walls and floors,  installed new load bearing plinths for plant, fitted new door openings and made minor alterations to the structure to facilitate removal of old and installation of new plant.
