Oventrop valves supplied for this educational development in Bolton included differential-pressure regulating valves and Aquastrom valves for DHW systems.

Bolton’s new £70 million college and sixth-form development comprises three educational buildings on one site and uses a broad mix of Oventrop valves to control heating and cooling. The focal point of the 20 200 m2 site is a glazed 3-storey rotunda, which houses a number of learning resource centres, flexible learning spaces, classrooms, office space and an informal cafe area which will be share with Bolton Sixth Form College.

The Oventrop valves include Cocon Q pressure-independent 2-port control valves, differential-pressure-control sets, TRV/Combi 4-port combinations for radiators and Aquastrom T Plus multi-function DHW valves — as well as a wide selection of general valves.

As well as all the general valves, Oventrop also provided 80 Hydromat DP differential-pressure regulating valves and matching Hydroset commissioning sets for various locations throughout the three blocks on the site to aid hydronic balancing.

DHW system were fitted with Aquastrom T Plus multi-function secondary-circuit regulating valves to simplify commissioning and save energy by controlling temperature and flow.

Gifford was the consulting engineer and specified Oventrop valves for their availability. Smith Group UK installed the mechanical services.
