Kimpton have been appointed to reduce the carbon impact and improve the efficiency of the heating and water systems at the iconic 801-bedroom Tower Hotel in London.
Having expanded nationally, and after almost 60 years in business, experts in this type of project, Kimpton will deliver new boiler plant and a sophisticated 60m flue system, running from the basement plantroom through the hotel to the roof.
The five new industrial condensing boilers will deliver a total heating power of over 3.8mW, via an 8” gas main – 100 times larger than the average domestic supply.
Crucially, this upgrade will be project managed over a 16-week period to ensure zero downtime for the hotel in terms of heating or water supply, and ready for the end of September heating season. Once installed the new system offers a huge amount of additional flexibility as requirements change over time and season.
Matt Breakwell from Kimpton commented “We love working on hotel and accommodation projects such as the Tower Hotel in London. We’re used to demanding timelines, challenging space requirements and ensuring the resulting systems are both carbon friendly, innovative, and cost-efficient. We have implemented many similar projects at prestigious sites across the UK, and are glad to once again be working with Davies Partnership on this project”
Kevin Fields, Commercial Manager at Davies Partnership commented “With their expertise in innovative heating and ventilation systems, Kimpton were the obvious choice for this project. They are highly skilled with the technical knowledge to deliver these kinds of complex projects in short timeframes. We are pleased to be working with them on this project to improve the efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint at Tower Hotel.”
