Mikrofill has supplied a range of its products for the refurbishment of John Black Day Hospital in the West Midlands. The hospital, which provides mental health services, has undergone transformation from an in-patient to an out-patient facility. This included refurbishment of its building services.

The existing cast iron atmospheric boilers were replaced with 3No Ethos 110kW wall mounted condensing boilers as well as a Mikrovent 400 low loss header/air, dirt separator. The stainless steel boilers were installed on free standing frames and provide comfortable space heating throughout the reconfigured wings.

The building services design was carried out by Waterman Group (B/ham) and installed by Ward Services (Warwickshire). In addition, the new LPHW system is unvented by way of a pre-commissioned Mikrofilll 400 pressurisation package.
