South Molton Community College – Textiles and LRC Block


Heat Radiation worked with Skinner Construction on this new build construction of a standalone block, the aim of which was to create a new home for the Textiles classroom and a Learning Resource Centre.


Working alongside consultant engineers Norse Group and our key sub-contractors and supply chain we were able to deliver a high specification install on time that met the specific time scales required by the College. The install brought together Air Source Heat Pumps and Underfloor heating to work alongside Natural Ventilation Heat Recovery units to provide a low Carbon, highly efficient approach to heating and cooling the building.


The specific challenge of integrating the NVHR units and associated ductwork into the architectural aspects of the building was overcome with our install team working closely with multiple other trades to create a clean modern looking finish that complement the aesthetic of the building.


The finished building was warmly received by the college, and we were proud to be part of helping to deliver them this great new facility.
