Urban Splash, Imperial Park Bristol, UK



Residents at the new Lakeshore development at Imperial Park, Bristol will benefit from sustainable heating and hot water thanks to 270 NEXUS BITHERM wall-mounted units from ELCO (formerly MHS Boilers).  

As part of a major renovation and joint partnership between Urban Splash and the Homes and Communities Agency, the Grade II listed building consists of studio, one and two bedroom apartments.

The original building dates back to 1974 and was formerly the Imperial Tobacco headquarters. The futuristic design was clad in Cor-ten steel, designed to give the building an 800 year life span. Emphasising the development’s commitment to sustainable construction, a geothermal borehole heating and hot water system has been incorporated. The M&E contractor for the installation was Cheltenham-based CF Roberts.

The NEXUS heat interface units are part of a district heating scheme which delivers heating and hot water at the Urban Splash development. With the growing popularity of district, network or community heating systems, NEXUS from MHS Boilers provides the link between the centralised heating plant and a dwelling or small business unit.

Whether the requirement is for a direct type unit or an indirect unit, for build-into-the-wall or for wall-hanging, with or without heat or water metering or with connections top/bottom or all on one plane – MHS Boilers has a comprehensive solution with NEXUS.
