Our concept design builds upon a feasibility study or options appraisal
The concept design builds upon the feasibility study or options appraisal but these are not pre-requisites. During the concept design, we explore what could be the most technical and cost-effective heat pump solution for your needs. We consider size, location, energy centre, heat network, layout, spread allocation, and cost throughout the process. Our engineers take the proposed solution and create a high-level block diagram or system schematic. The final result includes initial pipe and pump sizing, schematics and general arrangement models.
In the process of concept design, our engineers start to assess:
- Pipe routes and sizes
- Pump sizes
- Plant room layouts
- Space considerations
- Power demand calculations
- Modifications to existing plant room pipework or emitters if the project is being retrofitted
- Control systems
We highly recommend a site visit at this stage to better understand your current plant room layout and mode of operation and control. After the visit, our engineers will create schematics of the existing systems (if not available) and amend them to include your chosen low carbon system.
At the end of this stage, you will have concept schematics and general arrangement drawings. You can pass these on to an installer for further detailing and quotation.
