New Build Case Study: Redrow Homes
- Greenstar CDi Compact LPG-fired condensing boilers
- Greenstore solar compatible unvented cylinders
- Greensource split air to water heat pumps
"When the local planning authority implemented a 10% renewable policy we considered different technologies for our off-mains properties. We worked with Worcester, Bosch Group’s Heating Design Team and after a comprehensive specification process, we decided to install six Greensource split air to water heat pumps across six properties. An additional solution also had to be created for the larger houses within the project as at 3,000sq ft, the renewable solution was not appropriate. We installed 19 Greenstar CDi Compact LPG boilers alongside 19 Greenstore unvented hot water storage cylinders.
Why do you choose to work with Worcester, Bosch Group?
At the very beginning of the project one of our main aims was to identify ways of achieving energy reduction on site. Worcester’s Heating Design Team had numerous ideas as to how we could achieve this as well as a range of quality products to provide a complete package for the affordable homes on the site, including boilers and heat pumps. Worcester also offers a range of products suitable for use alongside LPG, which was essential for the houses located off the main gas grid. Working with one manufacturer was hugely beneficial, not just because of the robust systems available but also for consistency across the development.
Having a complete system solution is a bonus from the specification perspective as it’s good to have a holistic solution that is covered by one warranty. It also helps the installers as the products are streamlined and designed to form a complete solution. I know this particular project ran smoothly from start to finish as a result. With Worcester, we know we’re working with a reputable brand.
Supporting CSR requirements
We place a lot of emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and aim to work with businesses that possess their own environmental management systems and conduct their work in a responsible manner. We also place a large focus on this in our supply chain and look to streamline work and deliveries wherever possible. We continually aim to build on our CSR, the sustainability of our business and understand that it’s not all about profit, but also how our work has an effect on others. For this reason, we do consider how our partners do business and this is a reason we choose to work with Worcester and will continue to do so.
The backing of the Worcester brand re-affirms quality and this is something that cannot be said for every manufacturer, which is why we continually choose to work with Worcester. At Redrow we certainly see ourselves working with Worcester for the foreseeable future.".
