Kendal Town Library

Introducing Kendal Town Library

Kendal Town Library was opened in 1906 within the centre of the Cumbrian town and was a welcome addition to Kendal’s rich architectural heritage. This impressive building that has large imposing windows, an important element in its original design to allow as much natural light as possible, remains at the heart if the Lakeland community and delivers vital services to young and old. In order to continue this, it has recently undergone a renovation programme which has included the replacement of its boiler to deliver more efficient heating and hot water.

Project Profile

PSA were the consultants on the project with Roland Hill Limited taking on the M&E contract. The main challenge for Roland Hill was to integrate a new piping system along the existing steel pipework. Following research and discussions with industry professionals about systems that were suitable for a retrofit project of this nature, the Roland Hill team opted for the new VSH PowerPress.

The thick wall steel system offered flexibility and ease of fitting which was particularly evident when joining with the existing heating pipework at high level in the boiler house. This heat free press system negated the need to attempt threading or welding in difficult and hard to reach locations, and therefore provided a much cleaner and safer install.

In addition, VSH PowerPress delivered increased health and safety benefits for installers and offered time saving efficiencies too. Combined with onsite training, which was delivered to the installers by the Pegler team, complete confidence in installation procedures and system capabilities was realised.

What Roland Hill said:

Greig Hill commented: “Due to the nature of this project we required a system that could not only provide long lasting quality but one that could integrate with the existing pipework too. It was also to be situated in a challenging area so we needed an all encompassing heat free system, that we could trust. Thankfully we discovered VSH PowerPress by Pegler and have been so impressed with it and the training and service offered by the manufacturer that we will definitely consider using it again on other similar projects.”
