UoK CHP Study


Wilson & Partners were approached by the University of Kent to undertake a cost feasibility exercise for the potential implementation of campus wide heating system, being distributed from an energy center with CHP units.



The scheme involved a campus wide high level study of the existing heating plant being used for High Temperature Hot Water (HTHW) distribution, and the works required to convert the system to Low Temperature Hot Water (LTHW).


Services & Solutions

In order to give a higher accuracy of cost certainty, Wilson & Partners collaborated with a local mechanical contractor, and quantity surveyor to ensure a complete approach to the detailed costing exercise. Below are some key points from the project:


  • 4-day study of the connected plant rooms, working with plant and spaces that have drastically changed over the years in line with campus requirements

  • Close liaison with the University to validate key assumptions

  • Detailed internal collaboration, and access to recent completed schemes to verify cost figures
