Viessmann gets top grade for student flats in London
Walpole, which houses 87 students in cluster flats and self-contained studios, uses award-winning Viessmann gas-fired condensing boilers and a Viessmann combined heat and power (CHP) unit to generate warmth and electricity for its flats, common room, study area and outdoor spaces. The technology was selected for its high performance and compact design and the building achieved BREEAM Excellent.
Jonathan Grist, Viessmann commercial sales director, says: “It’s great to see the student accommodation developer sector match our excitement for the new Vitocrossal 100 boiler. What we have created at Walpole is an ideal heating package – together with our CHP units and integrated controls – to serve the typical demands of a 50 to 100 apartment block, even in space-restricted city developments.”
The CHP unit, a Viessmann Vitobloc 200 EM 9/20, is sized to suit the well-designed city-centre site, while three 320 kW Viessmann Vitocrossal 100 floor-standing gas boilers are used in cascade to provide heating and hot water throughout the accommodation. This is the first completed UK installation of the Vitocrossal 100 which was launched earlier this year.
