Result

Michael Nugent Ltd contracted John J Doyle Ltd to design, supply and install a new flue system to suit the boilers and water heaters at LIV Student Accommodation, York Street, Belfast.

LIV Student utilises a district heating system. District heating is a system for distributing heat generated in a centralised location through insulated pipes for residential and commercial heating requirements. District heating is becoming increasingly popular as it can provide higher efficiencies and better pollution control than localised boilers.

Due to the restrictions in space and height within the boiler house, a common header system to combine flues was not possible. The best route was to take each flue individually through the boiler house roof.

The space for the water heaters was also limited so the water heater connections were installed using single wall flues to maximise space in the plant room for additional services.

To comply with UP10 regulations, the flue was installed to the highest point of the building, as according to calculations the planned termination point fell within the radius of concern.

This installation was completed on time and to budget according to all European and local standards and the Clean Air Act.
