Client: De La Salle
Project: Sports Hall Heating

Project overview

Aston successfully tendered the installation of heating systems for De La Salle's new sports hall. The college was conscious of the high running costs of their other school buildings and therefore requested a sustainable, economic design.

Aston solution

Mitsubishi Ecodan air-source heat pumps were used to heat both the floor and the hot water. Timoleon supplied Aether FoilBoard sections with a double pipe channel, which integrated perfectly with the acoustic sprung battens in the sports hall. When the system is in operation, heat is distributed evenly across the entire floor area, and the low temperature requirements of Timoleon underfloor heating ensure that the heat pump system is kept at maximum efficiency throughout its operating cycle.

New changing rooms are located beneath the hall and these too are served by Timoleon underfloor heating. Here, a pipe-and-staple technique has been used with insulation and pipework integrated into the floor by a sand and cement top screed.

The underfloor heating system and heat pumps were specified and installed by Aston.
