Boiler & Central Heating Replacement

QEGS, Blackburn

The boilers in three of the school’s buildings were all decades old. They were in a very poor condition, defective, and at the end of their useful lives. New gas boilers, plant, pipework, radiators, convector heaters and controls were installed which provided the school with an energy efficient heating system. The works improved the heating provision and controllability to all buildings, enhancing the teaching and learning environment. The School now has the security of heat to all classrooms during the winter months.

All works were funded via the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) with Lea Hough having prepared the CIF funding application (on a no-charge basis) on the academy’s behalf, prepared all specifications, designs, drawings, tendered the works to achieve competitive tender prices and carried out full project-management through to overall completion.



"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
