The project to replace the existing boilers at Cranford Community College came about due to the premature aging of the existing gas fired boilers. One of the three boilers had already failed, whilst the second had been known to suffer operational issues and combustion side leakage in the past.
At the time the pre assessment survey took place the college was only operating 2 boilers and without any reliable standby capacity. The college was therefore vulnerable to severe operational disruption in the event of further boiler failure.
In 2016 Faithful+Gould were asked to carry out an assessment of the existing boilers and prepared a CIF submission report recommending full upgrade to condensing boilers in order to improve overall energy consumption.
Works were completed in November 2017 following an 11 week installation which also involved asbestos removal from the plant room and a new boiler flue.
Faithful+Gould continues to work with Cranford Community College on Fire Safety matters.
