To ensure heating and water quality is maintained the present boilers and cold-water storage tanks are to be removed and replaced with a modern closed (no tanks) system.


A number of quotations were sought, but due to the risk to onsite service delivery the supplier which can provide the new system the quickest was chosen, being Columbus Plumbing and Heating Services a cost of £102,938. This will be funded from the East Villa refurbishment budget.
