GPJ Consulting Engineers were commissioned by a Private Client to provide heating, hot water and ventilation designs for their private dwelling.
Heating was designed to utilise a ground source heat pump using a new manmade lake as the heat source. GPJ Consulting Engineers carried out a ground survey to establish the optimum location and size for the lake. Automated sluice valves were integrated into decorative weirs and channels to control the flow of water through the lake.
Pipe coils were sunk within the lake to capture the heat. From these coils buried flow and return pipes run to the plant room where they connected to the heat pump.
This heat was then utilised for underfloor heating. Radiators and pre heating the domestic hot water.
