Underfloor for outdoor centre
Published: 15 October, 2010
Rehau partner White Underfloor Heating has installed almost 1000 m2 of underfloor heating at the newly opened Tollymore National Outdoor Centre.
The £5 million centre is sited on the edge of the Mourne Mountains in Ireland. The main building includes meeting areas, training rooms and residential accommodation. A lower ground floor area houses changing rooms, shower facilities and a rolling pool for canoe training. It is here that Rehau underfloor heating has been installed along with 6,000 m of hot and cold water supply.
The project has been built with close attention paid to its impact on the environment and includes a biomass boiler as the heat source for the underfloor heating. The project also uses solar panels and rainwater recycling. The project has achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
