Eliot College Plant Room - Phase One

Project Value - £0.25m


Wilson & Partners were appointed as the MEP designer for emergency refurbishment works within the main plant room of Eliot College following failure of a high temperature hot water shell and tube heat exchanger.
Requiring rapid mobilisation, the project required survey and modelling of the existing plant, calculation of design parameters and implementation of a remedial scheme, following tender, during the limited summer recess.


The works involved the removal and replacement of the existing high temperature hot water system interface within the substation plant room. The aim of the project was to remove the large pressure vessels and replace them with more compact and efficient plate heat exchangers and included provision for integration of future phases into the design.

Services included:
Detailed site survey including 3D modelling of all existing pipework, plant, equipment, and surrounding plant space
Detailed design works
Detailed cost estimate
Installation drawings
Assistance with the procurement of temporary heating system whilst the permanent works were completed
Plant room was undergoing essential works
Weekly site visits
Snagging, commissioning, and defects inspections

Stage 6 As Built Drawing information

Project Delivery:

Site survey was undertaken by Wilson & Partners engineers/technicians and a fully detailed 3 D model was developed as a basis for new equipment installation.
Following the appointment of a specialist contractor Wilson & Partners worked alongside their team to deliver the scheme before the district heating system was fully operational A very challenging, but rewarding project, delivered within a tight programme to ensure continuity of service to one of the University larger colleges
