Kingston House East is the latest amongst a number of exclusive apartment buildings in one of London’s most fashionable residential districts to benefit from the changeover to boilers and plate heat exchangers supplied by Stokvis Energy Systems.
Daystone Services from Chingford in London is a long term customer of Stokvis Energy Systems and routinely specifies the manufacturer’s high efficiency commercial boilers for its larger projects. In this case, the work involved upgrading the plant room serving Kingston House East – a block of 60 stylish apartments forming part of the Kingston Estate in Kensington.
A pair of Stokvis premix, fully condensing 3400 boilers have been installed within the property; they supply heating via the existing primary circuits. Meanwhile, Kingston House East apartments are also served by Stokvis Energy Systems’ Econoplate plate heat exchangers which deliver instantaneous hot water very efficiently and also remove the risk of Legionella contamination.
Nearby Albert Hall Mansions also relies on similar Econoplate models to produce domestic hot water. Then the Southbury building also features Stokvis boilers and plate heat exchangers for its heating and hot water, while further specifications of Stokvis equipment are likely in the future.
One of the directors of Daystone Services, Bill Welling, commented: “As a contractor covering London within the M25 and much of Essex, we take care of both domestic and commercial work. Wherever there is a commercial boiler required and the client leaves it to us to provide the specification, we recommend Stokvis boilers. We have used the company for many years and know they provide the reliability and performance which our customers demand while the technical support is also very good.”
Stokvis Energy Systems offers a comprehensive range of heating and hot water products including fully packaged plant rooms, and the R40 Modupak option which combines fully condensing gas boilers with the flexibility of cascade installation. It also produces the Stokvis H-Series Heat Interface Units (HIUs) which can provide metered space heating and hot water to apartment buildings from either centralised boilers or other sources including renewables and district heating mains.
