Pinders Healthcare Design Awards
14 Mar

Good Luck to all finalists in the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2018 today – in particular to those in our sponsored category – ‘Best Independent Living Scheme’!

Best wishes also go to the projects we did mechanical installations for – Parris Lawn Care Home in Ringmer (Galleon Care) has been nominated for the Best New Care Home – Elderly category, and Baycroft Grays Farm Road in Orpington (One Housing) has received a nomination for Best New Care Home.

A huge good luck to all of those involved and we hope you have a fabulous afternoon at the Lancaster London Hotel!

Hydraulic Interface Boards
05 Mar

Our Hydraulic Interface Boards are fed by the central heating plant using 2 pipes. There are 2 heat exchangers within the board which isolate the unit itself from the main system, essentially creating an isolated ‘mini-system’ within the building. This means that if there is a leak or failure in the system, that leak will not take out an entire building, the mini-system would ensure it would just be contained to the apartment or one area of the building. These boards can be custom made for your building. The example in the photo has been proposed as an example for Extra Care Apartments, and includes: – Underfloor Heating Manifold – Electrical Distribution Board – Heating Controls – Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit – Fuse Switches – Emergency Stop Valves

Mechanical Control Boards
05 Mar

A cheaper alternative to the Hydraulic Interface Unit is our newest pre-fabricated design, the Mechanical Control Board. The hot water is generated at the central heating plant, and fed to the boards via metered pipes. These boards are custom made for your building. The example in the photo has been approved for Affordable Extra Care Apartments, and includes: – Radiator Manifold – Heating Controls – Metered Hot Water – Metered Cold Water – Metered Heating Distribution – Fuse Switches – Emergency Stop Valves

First Fix Ensuite Boards
05 Mar

Along with Heating Interface Units, we also have the ability to pre-fabricate First Fix Ensuite Boards in-house. These pre-fabricated First Fix Ensuite Boards are pre-measured, pre-built and custom-made for each contract we take on, and can be produced in advance of us being able to start fixing ensuites, so like the heating interface units, this process increases productivity and vastly decreases time spent on site trying to first fix in tight spaces. These boards can be custom made for your building and are quality assured. The example on the left includes: – WC Cistern & Pipework – TMV3 Mixers – Stop Valves – Can also be made with pre-fabricated first fix shower pipework, depending on shape of room and measurements etc. If you have any questions or are keen to use our pre-factication options, please do not hesitate to get in touch today!

Heating Interface Units
05 Mar

At Heatcare, we have embraced a new, more modern way of working, ‘the lean way of working’, by pre-fabricating a lot of our items and systems in-house prior to arriving on site. We can pre-fabricate Heating Interface Units in our in-house pre-fabrication workshop, shedding the time we need to spend on site. These pre-fabricated “boiler cupboards” can be made quickly and efficiently as soon as we have your approval, meaning that we are not waiting for different disciplines to finish working before we can start in a particular area – increasing productivity and decreasing time spent trying to work in small, difficult spaces. We currently offer two different kinds of Heating Interface Units. Both units are fully metered for the hot water, mains cold water and heating usage of the unit.

Pebble Mill
05 Mar

We have just completed the Mechanical Services for a new care home at Pebble Mill, Birmingham, which has been chosen as one of the small group of care homes in Bupa’s prestigious new Select Collection – the Select collection ensures ‘the little things in life are protected’, like her perfect gin and tonic, his favourite morning pastry or one and a half sugars in that strong cup of tea.


Pre-fabricated Plant Room Units
05 Mar

We are now able to provide both temporary and pre-fabricated Plant Room Units. These units are design and built off-site, in our pre-fabrication warehouse. We can offer pre-fabricated plant rooms, which can be simply dropped into place and connected on-site, vastly reducing time spent on-site. We are also able to provide temporary plant rooms to keep your building up and running during refurbishments. Our latest boiler house (pictured) has been used for this method.

Pre-Fabrication Workshop Investment Underway
21 Feb

At Heatcare, we’ve recently invested in a new mezzanine floor which is currently being built within our current pre-fabrication workshop. We believe that pre-fabrication increases productivity, increases quality assurance, reduces waste, reduces commissioning times on-site, and all-in-all pre-fabrication is a much more cost-effective solution in the current building services climate. The new mezzanine floor will create essential storage space for completed pre-fabricated boards, which in turn gives us a larger spacial area for production. This means we can be working on several projects at a time within the workshop space, increasing productivity. The mezzanine floor is set to be completed in the next couple of weeks and looks to be a great investment for the future.

Christmas Jumper Day
15 Dec

A bit of last minute fundraising at Heatcare raised an awesome £102.50 today in honour of Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day… can you spot the “Christmas jumper”?

World Youth Angling Championships
10 Aug

We’re thinking about Joshua Paling, who we’ve sponsored to take part in the World Youth Angling Championships taking place over the course of this week in Ireland! Josh is fishing for the England Under 15’s team!

A massive good luck from all of us at Heatcare Josh! We hope you get some great catches!
