Remeha Commercial teams up with Bath Rugby
The transformation of Farleigh House in Somerset into the administrative and training headquarters of Bath Rugby includes Remeha Commercial boilers for heating and hot water in a plant room which, says project architect Simon Pugh-Jones of Arena 1865, is a stopping off point for visitors. The sympathetic conversion of this one-time home, school and place of work has preserved its original splendour whilst providing every modern facility necessary for a successful rugby club.
Outdoor facilities include two natural pitches and a half-size artificial pitch.
The former chapel has been transformed into a state-of-the art air-conditioned gym, with hot water provided by two Remeha Quinta Pro 65 condensing boilers heating two 500 l Remtank cylinders.
Derelict outbuildings have been transformed into the Long Barn, which houses changing and showering facilities for all players, a strapping area, medical centre and rehabilitation space. Underfloor heating and radiators are served by two Quinta Pro 90 condensing boilers, which also provide primary heating for a 2500 l solar cylinder.
Responsible for the refurbishment was Simon Bryant Jefferies of JEM Heating, a former Bath Rugby player and ardent supporter of the club.
