Hamworthy at St Paul’s Cathedral

Published:  01 August, 2018

Hamworthy, St Paul's

St Paul’s Cathedral is a Grade 1 listed building, so its structure is subject to strict regulations. The cathedral’s failing boilers meant a refurbishment project would have to take those restrictions into account. Hamworthy provided a modular boiler system and two high performance calorifiers. The cathedral has reduced its gas consumption by close to 40% compared to using the old boilers before the refurbishment.

When the old boilers started leaking and could not be repaired any more, Robin Bunton from Bunton M&E Services advised replacement boilers. He worked with with Mike Crouch, Hamworthy’s agent for the area, and Nick Coates from Blue Print Building Services Design. Bunton recommended Hamworthy’s Wessex ModuMax mk3 condensing modular boilers. And six months prior to the installation of the boilers, two MagnaClean filters were installed to clear the heating system from sludge and debris, followed by a system flush.
