The optimum heating solution for public sector buildings

October 2018

When considering heating options, public sector organisations have a lot to consider, juggling issues of cost, environmental impact, value for tax payers, maintenance and of course effectiveness in creating a comfortable environment.

To help address these issues, the public sector is turning to underfloor heating (UFH) with dry floor construction as an alternative to traditional screed options. It is quick to install and, because it needs no drying time, the construction team can get straight on with the adjacent trades. This significantly reduces time spent waiting to apply a floor finish, and saving time means saving money.

Using dry floor construction UFH also enables a faster and more efficient response time, creating a constant ambient environment to ensure occupants are at their optimum comfort levels in all weather conditions. In schools for example, each classroom can control its own temperature – quickly and easily. Also, the same pipes that heat can also serve to cool a space. With the average national temperature predicted to rise by as much as 8°C over the next century, it makes sense for government businesses to fit buildings for the future and consider the implementation of comfort cooling from the outset

Environmentally, underfloor heating’s zero ozone depletion potential is another exceptional benefit. Because underfloor heating systems run at lower water temperatures, energy usage is significantly reduced, lowering the carbon footprint of the building. Warmafloor’s dry floor product is 100% recycled ensuring BREEAM requirements can be met.

For over 30 years, Warmafloor has been providing heating solutions to public sector organisations and, to date, some 1,300 schools benefit from Warmafloor’s expertise.

When it comes to maintenance, Warmafloor’s underfloor heating comes with an industry leading 100-year guarantee on its British Standards Kitemarked pipes. It is maintenance free. No maintenance costs, more money saved.

With regard to health, underfloor heating beats traditional radiator systems because it does not spread bacteria, allergens and dust like convection radiators, promoting better air quality and reducing the risk of condensation and microbiological growth.

It also frees up wall space, making room design much more flexible. No radiators means more wall space, a safer environment and more freedom to rearrange offices or classrooms.

Holcombe Grammar School fitted with floating floor

October 2018

The Project

Holcombe Grammar School, formerly known as Chatham Grammar, has a proud history dating back over 200 years. Situated in its current location since the 1920s, the property has undergone significant alterations and developments over the years to ensure it remains a first-class educational facility. The school is currently going through a number of exciting developments, including the introduction of a co-educational sixth form from the 2017/18 academic year. Within these developments, the school is introducing four new classrooms, housing up to 80 students and covering a 350 m² area.

The school required an efficient, sustainable heating system to provide the best possible learning environment for the new facilities. To deliver on the brief, main contractors, G A Harper Ltd., turned to underfloor heating (UFH) specialist Warmafloor for its technical expertise and full end-to-end design and installation services.


The Solution

Explaining the project requirements, Chris Azzopardi, Consultant at G A Harper Ltd., says: “Holcombe Grammar comprises several buildings clustered around the old Holcombe Manor. Over the years, the school has built up around this central building, and at each stage of development the highest quality finish has ensured that the facilities are futureproofed as much as possible.

“For this project, the heating system needed to adhere to strict BREEAM standards. It also had to help maximise usable space and ensure a comfortable environment conducive to learning, with minimal maintenance requirements. In addition to this, we needed a solution that would be quick and easy to install in a busy construction area.

“We therefore turned to Warmafloor for its extensive UFH expertise and ability to design and install complex systems that meet exacting criteria. Warmafloor also offers a 100-year guarantee on its systems, which is unique on the market and a big plus point when it comes to a school that wants a high-performance solution that won’t let them down in the long run.”

UFH offers a range of benefits that make it the perfect choice for school projects. For example, it keeps floor coverings warm and dry by circulating heated water beneath the surface, minimising the growth of hazardous contaminants like bacteria and supporting the general wellness of building occupants.

By removing the need for clunky radiators on walls, UFH also maximises space and provides flexibility for classroom layouts. In addition, Warmafloor UFH solutions can be used both to heat rooms in cold weather, as well offering a cooling system in the summer months.

For the Holcombe Grammar project, Warmafloor was also tasked with designing a system that addressed some unique project requirements. Jon Moran, Business Development Manager at Warmafloor, explains: “When G A Harper Ltd. chose us for this project, there were a few key stipulations we had to consider from the outset. For example, the entire project had to meet BREEAM standards, as well as deliver a long-lasting end-result that would benefit the school in the long term.

“We developed a bespoke Floating Floor dry system, which offered high structural integrity with minimal down-time once installed. We also used recycled materials to meet BREEAM requirements – for example, we used 100 per cent recycled gypsum and 100 per cent recycled foam. We also provided full performance and environmental data on the system to help G A Harper Ltd. meet its wider project requirements.”


The Benefits

Warmafloor’s Floating Floor system requires no drying time, so extension works could resume as quickly as possible following its installation. In these systems, the underfloor pipework is fitted into pre-grooved metal diffusion plates and set in polystyrene floor insulation panels, following which dry screed floorboards are laid. The final floor covering can then be installed over the system – a quick, easy and effective method which fit in with the project’s strict timetable.

Another key benefit of the Floating Floor system is that it offers complete access for any component repair or replacement. The flooring can simply be lifted and the system fixed, minimising future disruption from any unnecessary maintenance work.

Azzopardi concludes: “Warmafloor’s Floating Floor system was the perfect solution for Holcombe Grammar School’s new extension. The quick installation time allowed on-site works to progress more efficiently and the strength and quality of the installation will ensure that the UFH is an investment to last.

“However, Warmafloor provided much more than just a physical installation. Its end-to-end service offering means that they have been able to support us in designing and providing technical advice on how to meet stringent environmental requirements, as well as remaining on time and on budget.”
