Low Carbon Heat For Scottish Borders Nurseries

Amid all of the Covid restrictions, it’s great to see that it’s still possible to get on, safely, with some excellent projects.

Locogen is currently working to install air source heat pump systems at Priorsford Nursery in Peebles and St Ronans Nursery in Innerleithen. Each of these new build nurseries is being built adjacent to the existing local primary schools and will benefit from twin 15kW Vaillant Arotherm heat pumps. When ready, these will provide low carbon heat throughout the buildings to keep the children warm and comfortable.

These normally straightforward projects have been complicated by the current crisis. First halted by lockdown, the lifting of some restrictions allowed the projects to proceed, albeit with significant safety measures in place.

Locogen worked hard with our client, Scottish Borders Council Contracts, and subcontractor, Lothian Gas, to implement and maintain a proper health and safety regime to allow the installations to take place.

Locogen’s Senior Heat Engineer, David Ferguson, said: “This has been a great example of close partnership working in difficult circumstances. We’d like to thank both Scottish Borders Council Contracts and Lothian Gas for their flexibility, commitment and professionalism in getting the job done well and safely.”
