Ready for mains connections in less than a day was this Potterton packaged boiler plant for a residential care centre in Bristol.

Heating for the Bush Residential Resource Centre of Bristol City Council is now provided by a modular, condensing packaged boiler plant supplied by Potterton Commercial. The new plant became necessary when a school on the same site with which a heating system was shared was demolished. The centre provides residential short breaks for children with learning difficulties.Pupils attend normal schools during the day and receive care at the residential centre overnight during the week and at weekends to provide short-break care for families.

The Sirius MB packaged boiler plant was selected by Bristol’s principal M&E engineer, who described it as ‘a neat package with a corner configuration which kept the plantroom footprint to a reasonable size’.

The package includes two Sirius WH 110 kW condensing boilers, frame mounted along with pumps, pressurisation units and controls.

The equipment was supplied by BSS in Bristol and installed by JRC Mechanical Services of Ilminster. The installation was ready for connecting to mains services in less than a day.
