Buderus chosen for long service in Derby ‘jail’
Destined for long service in the old City of Derby jail complex is a wide range of Buderus boilers for the various parts and stages of this development.
Heating and hot water for the separate areas of old City of Derby jail complex that has been completely refurbished as a destination venue is provided by a range of Buderus boilers. The redevelopment is being undertaken by local entrepreneur Nick Brammar in several phases. Stage one, comprising a bar, restaurant and a principal apartment is the first to be completed. Stage two is a new-build development of 16 apartments designed to match the period styling of neighbouring buildings. Stage three will include a private-function suite, bistro and two luxury apartments. The original building now includes the Limes Bar & Restaurant, with a basement bar and disco area, a ground-floor bistro bar, first-floor restaurant and bar, and a penthouse apartment. The requirements of the vaulted basement bar and disco and the large ground-floor bar are met by a 60 kW Buderus 800 boiler. A 29 kW Buderus 800 boiler provides heating for the first-floor restaurant, and another 29 kW 800 boiler serves the penthouse apartment. Buderus 600 range 28 kW combis have been specified for the phase-three function suite and the two apartments. Another 29 kW 800 model will serve the new bistro. All these boilers are SEDBUK A rated. The integrated fan and gas valve is factory set to ensure a perfect gas/air mixture, simplifying commissioning.The 800 boilers can modulate down to 30% of full output t maximise condensing operation. The variable-speed pumps also match system demand to deliver further energy savings.
