This project consisted of the conversion of a former commercial building comprising office space in the heart of Romford, into 77 quality residential apartments, spread across four floors providing a selection of studio, one and two bed units and a 24-hour concierge facility.
Underfloor heating was specified as the preferred heating solution and Ambiente is proud to have been involved from initial design stage, working closely with both the M&E consultant and architect, through to delivery and completion with the appointed mechanical contractor.
The underfloor heating was incorporated above the existing pre-cast concrete slab, within the new 65mm sand and cement screed layer over 25mm thermal insulation to each floor, with the AmbiClip system selected as the best option for ease of installation and consistent pipework layout. The pipework was clipped into the ‘cliprails’, which were self-adhered to the top of the insulation layer, with the floor screed laid over the top of this after pressure testing and sign-off.
The Ambiente PRT/E thermostat was selected for controlling the underfloor heating systems in each apartment, comprising seven day programmable time and temperature settings across four time cycles, holiday mode, frost mode and many other user friendly and energy efficient functions.
