John Lewis Kingston was fitted out in 1990 and was operating on its original boiler plant. As the boilers were nearing end of life and critical to the operation of the store, a replacement plan was put in place for a turnkey project to replace the plant, controls and electrics in a programmed manner, with a strong priority on minimal impact to the operation of the store.
HVAC were appointed to complete a design and build solution involving its pipework services specialists.
HVAC designed, manufactured, installed and project managed the entire boiler replacement project including a full CDM compliance package. The works was completed over several months utilising our approved supply chain & in-house staff to complete electrics, controls and specialist flue installation.
HVAC were able to develop the design and programme in such a way as to complete the works safely and with minimal impact to the store. Although works were completed over winter months, hot water and heating were maintained with modifications to the existing back up plant.
“This was the first project of this type I had to deliver and I found HVAC hugely supportive during this process. The units were installed within the stated time with little or no disruption to the branch at its busiest time of year, and have functioned uninterrupted since they have been handed over. Really good communication throughout the process that continued after the project was completed.” – Mr Powell, Maintenance Operations Manager
