The Travelodge in Scarborough required the supply and installation of an upgraded heating and hot water plant, with as minimal interruption to the guests and hotel amenities.


CMS initially supplied a trailer mounted temporary boiler plant to deliver the hotel hot water services. This involved having to make connections onto the existing gas and hot water services.

This temporary plant ran the hotel services until new boiler plant is installed.

CMS then had to remove the existing water heaters and scrap them, and isolate the boiler plant and remove it to scrap.

CMS engineers then supplied and installed 3 x 100KW wall hung, condensing boilers in the hotel basement where the old water heaters had been. These units were plumbed in complete with header, shunt pumps and unvented kit to suit.

Extraordinarily the hotel was without heating and hot water services for only 8 hours in the completion of this entire project.

Flue was installed through into rear lane above (Concentric flue following existing route).

A pressurisation unit for the sealed heating circuit was supplied and installed. The header was connected to the existing heating circuit complete with strainer and 3 port valve for compensated heating control.

2 x 600l hi recovery, indirect, unvented calorifiers were supplied and installed. These were plumbed in, complete with twin set primary pump, secondary circulator and unvented system kit to suit.

CMS electrical engineers wired in the plant room complete with the necessary isolation. They also modified the existing control panel to suit the new installation.

The new gas pipe was installed from the gas meter through to the new boilers complete with isolation, purge and test point. The new gas pipe was purged, commission and tested.

Hot and cold water services were plumbed in to suit ready for break in. Engineers completed the controlled break in to existing services, removed the temporary plant and converted the hotel onto the new system.
