Contemporary Eco House

Bodystat HQ, Tromode

Constructed by Complete Construction Services, Bodystat was a new build project of traditional masonry construction but with limited steel framework and concrete floors.

The client was looking for a green solution and we therefore increased the insulation to the roof and floors by 50% over standard. The usage of the building is largely offices with a warehouse on half the ground floor.

The concrete floors and well insulated building lent themselves to underfloor heating which is ideal for an Air Source Heat Pump.  By reducing the centres of the heating pipework we were able to design a system that required a flow temperature of 35ºc for the coldest months and 30ºc for Spring and Autumn which maximised the efficiency of the ASHP by restricting its use to lower temperatures.

The client also wanted to maximise the use of Comfy Tariff off peak electricity and a thermal store / buffer vessel were also incorporated. The ASHP is a Delonghi MTD AWR XE 0061 18.3kW and was installed by Matt Garside of MGHS, an Isle of Man based trained and accredited Stroma NX installation partner.
