An old commercial gas fired boiler plant was beyond serviceable life and was giving disruption to hotel heating and hot water services. Plant room in the basement of the 10-storey Manchester hotel next to the river with the old flue up through the building and very tight access restrictions.

The hotel remained in full occupancy without any issues for the duration of the installation. The designed solution saved 40% on gas bills.


CMS designed a solution that allowed a modular install without interrupting the hotel heating or hot water services. The designed solution gave:  greater resilience on hot water services with multiple condensing units; 40 % saving on gas bills with greater efficiency, improved water pressure with stability on hot and cold water services, remote monitoring on a modern BMC control system and more space returned to the basement plant room.

CMS UK Ltd is an NICEIC approved electrical contractor, GAS SAFE registered Gas installer and a B&ES approved heating and ventilation contractor. All work to be carried out by appropriately qualified engineers to current standards.
