Underfloor heating provides heated space within an unheated space

Even-Heat
A comfortable working area within the vast expanse of the Great Hall of Church House in Salisbury has been created using an Even-Heat underfloor heating system.
An island of working comfort has been created inside the Great Hall of Church House in Salisbury by an Even-Heat underfloor heating system. It heats a platform inside the hall to provide comfortable conditions for administrative staff — even though the ceiling is 10 m above them. Church House is the headquarters of the Diocese of Salisbury and the central publishing house for the Church of England. The Great Hall is 8 m long and 6 m wide, with a roof more than two storeys high. Heating such a space economically by conventional means is virtually impossible, yet the space was required for staff using office machinery, often for long periods at a time. The solution was to create a self-contained working area heated from the floor up by constructing a 12 m2 platform integrating an Even-Heat System. The heating system is served by hot water from an existing gas-fired boiler and controlled as a single zone via the twin-pump manifold and controlled by a thermostat in the stage area. The system was installed by K. J. Cole Ltd.
