Coleshill Nursing Home
Located off the roundabout at the junction between the A446and the Birmingham Road on the outskirts of Coleshill, Warwickshire. The site was, until recently, used by Warwickshire Police as a Police Station. It is located adjacent to the Coleshill Fire Station.
The scheme provides 91 bedrooms which makes it an optimum size for a care home making staff / nursing levels efficient and cost effective.
The building has been designed in a vernacular form but with a contemporary style which is considered to be in-keeping with the area but will also create a
strong building in this prominent location. Predominantly three floors under a pitched roof with feature gables, the building will provide interest when viewed
from both afar and close up. The building presents a strong corner to the southwest with a feature window. A mixture of Warwickshire red brickwork and self coloured render will create interesting facades to all four elevations. The windows will be deeply recessed into all reveals interspersed with highly detailed Juliet
balconies. Certain groups of windows will have purpose made deep surrounds occasionally breaking through the eaves lines in order to create interest.

The project involved major refurbishment and alterations to an existing office block that was being transformed into studio apartments and social housing accommodation. This involved a completely new M&E installation. On looking at the system, we knew that an improvement to the heating was required to reduce maintenance and running costs. The local authority also had a requirement to avoid lengthy gas runs going up the building into each apartment. Lessoning the risk of CO2 poisoning as well as costly annual gas safety checks.

YGHP Product: Heat Interface Units
Communal heating system was chosen as the most efficient system, providing comfort to the home owners and tenants, who benefit from a traditional LTHW system. A system with individual ultrasonic heat meters so the cost to the home owner tenant was only the cost of their own energy consumption. 69 YGHP direct heat interface units were chosen.
The reasoning behind this is the YGHP units have the capacity to run central heating as well as DHW simultaneously, opposed to a divertor valve that takes away the heat load when hot water is in demand. Added benefits were the low running costs of the YGHP HIU, with its thermostatically controlled keep warm facility. The home owner tenants only pay for the actual energy there use.
Excellent heat loss insulation is provided within the YGHP HIU. The HIU can be configured to run on credit billing or pay as you go, offering a flexible billing platform.
A five-year warranty on the HIU also gave the local authority piece of mind.
Malone Exchange Belfast
Malone Exchange is a development unlike any other in Belfast. A truly landmark building on the South Belfast cityscape, it is one of the most prestigious, high quality and iconic residential developments to be built in Northern Ireland in recent years.
This unique building is a stunning example of Art Deco styling and is one of only a few remaining in Ireland. The interior has been luxuriously yet sensitively developed and the exterior has remained in its former glory.
Ten luxury, spacious, high specification apartments over four floors, including the one of a kind rooftop penthouse – all beautifully constructed, to seamlessly mix contemporary living within rich built heritage.
Malone Telephone Exchange was built in 1935 and acted as the first exchange of its kind, linking Belfast and Dublin’s phone networks for the very first time.
The original staircase and windows have been beautifully restored and brought back to life.
The result is a stunning residential development that seamlessly blends heritage with modern, high specification and luxurious living accommodation, in
the heart of South Belfast.

Maxet House – Luton
Maxet house was previously used as an office complex but due to the nature of the city growth they were converted to an apartment block.
60 apartments – 1 & 2 bedrooms.
YGHP were approached to offer a cost effective solution in providing heat and hot water to every apartment.
60 x 100 litre electric water heaters were chosen which offered enough stored water for the kitchen and bathroom.
YGHP convectors were used for the heating side and provided an efficient yet cost effective option.
In the bathroom we offered stainless steel, electric towel warmers in a flat finish to keep with the elegant design.

Miserden – Heritage Site
Miserden is a family-run, rural estate overlooking the Golden Valley in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Cotswolds.
The estate encompasses 850 acres of woodland, farmland and gardens providing a sanctuary for wildlife and a tranquil escape for families.
YGHP were approached to look at improving the efficiency of Miserden Estates.
As the project already had a 700kW+ Biomass boiler we offered our energy efficient heat interface unit.
Such a beautiful estate deserved only the best and was an exciting project for us.

Packaged Plant Room
YGHP was contacted to supply a bespoke buffer tank to fit exact dimensions for the packaged plant room.
We were able to offer a slim steel version with removable insulation to allow movement into the plant while still offering high efficiency once positioned.
Packaged plant rooms and prefabrication is becoming very popular in the UK as the industry looks to minimise project costs and speed up project time frame.
