At the end of last year (2014) Cox Geelen was approached by the developer regarding a CFS project at Somerset Place, Bath.
Cox Geelen got involved due to their listed building status.
Somerset Place is a Victorian Terrace in the heart of Bath. The properties in Somerset Place are subjected to very tight restrictions on what can be done to their appearance on the outside, as they are called 'Listed Buildings' in the UK. The building being refurbished was originally a wealthy persons house.The property was purchased by the developer and was undergoing a major refurbishment, being converted into 'High End' apartments and the boilers servicing these needed to be flued vertical to meet the planning requirements.
This unique CFS project allowed Cox Geelen to show something different to the traditional new build projects. Installation of separate boilers in each apartment but not flued individually as no terminations were allowed on an outside wall.
Various Aladin calculations were carried out to give boiler chimney options. A decision was made on the best chimney option - Cox Geelen's CFS positive pressure - and boiler configuration.
With the Cox Geelen CFS system the local planning authority had a solution to the problem by being able to connect all the boilers to a single chimney which then exits the roof. The building contractor could carry out the installation of the CFS, the plumbing and boiler installation work.
