100 Minories Hotel, London, UK
100 Minories is a 270-room luxury hotel built in the heart of London facing the famous Tower Bridge. Due to its location, the site posed many challenges because some of the main tunnels of the London underground network were undercutting a part of the development and were also under the building. Not only that, but because the site was almost on the boundary of the old Roman City, an extensive archaeological investigation was required during the construction of a two-storey deep basement.
At the start of the project, consultants Buchanan Hartley contacted Aalberts integrated piping systems in the UK to receive some expert support during the selection of the correct valves in order to maximize the efficiency of the hot water system. Together with the consultants, the technical team produced commissioning schedules for the hot water service returns and balancing for the specific requirements of the building. In the end, an extensive range of valves, including Butterﬂy and Cast Iron Strainers, were fitted, in addition to our connection technology.
What the installer said:
Matt Austin, the Site Engineer, said: “We have used Aalberts integrated piping systems’ valve products on this job because they are a well-established brand that’s very reliable. Their connection technology range offered us ease of fitting and no hot works which was ideal for the range of applications we had which included bathroom pods to plant room connections. We also used VSH XPress from 15 through to 67 inch.
“We were really impressed with the support given by the team from Aalberts integrated piping systems in the UK. They were very knowledgeable and supported us throughout the whole process.”
