Tollard Court Heating Replacement
Tollard Court is a converted hotel building consisting of 39 high quality flats occupying a prestigious location on the cliff top at Bournemouth.
ION were engaged to design and oversee the complete replacement and upgrade of the entire heating system and all domestic hot and cold water systems serving the flats.
New high efficiency centralised heating plant will now replace existing life expired plant, with individual ‘Heat Interface Units’ incorporating energy monitoring and metering, now enabling accurate billing for individual occupiers.
The new system design required careful phasing to ensure minimal disruption to users of the building.
Arthur Hill Development
This multi-residential development provides 15 units in total, comprising a mixture of one, two and three bedroom units, sensitively integrated within a listed building façade.
The buildings have an extremely low energy footprint and are designed to ‘Passivhaus’ standards, resulting in a net zero carbon development.
Extremely low energy use is achieved via the incorporation of very high levels of thermal insulation, the use of 'air source' heat pump heating and hot water generation and roof mounted photo voltaic panels.
Drove Barn, Stubhampton – High Class Private Residence
The Drove Barn development forms part of the larger Stubhampton Estate programme, which is the redevelopment of over 2 square miles of land to form a large shooting estate located in Blandford Forum, Dorset. The Drove Barn development is the main visitor’s accommodation building with associated function and entertainment spaces.
Situated centrally within the Stubhampton Estate, the barn and various outbuildings required a complete M&E design including provision of new incoming services. ION developed the client’s complex and detailed brief to produce a comprehensive and fully integrated high quality installation.
The works include a fully automatic and integrated lighting scheme, heating and air conditioning systems to various rooms and specialist areas, including wine cellars and drying rooms. All the building services were sensitively integrated into the architectural elements of the buildings to maximise the visual impact of the interior and exterior of the development.
