Hales & Coultas helps local charity to provide life-enhancing support for people with cerebral palsy

   

Hales & Coultas Heating and Plumbing lent a helping hand to Lincolnshire House charity recently, installing heating systems and controls as part of their exciting hot tub extension project.

Lincolnshire House, based in Scunthorpe, supports people with Cerebral Palsy, providing residential, day and respite care to help them live their lives to the fullest.

Following some work previously completed by Hales & Coultas to install heating systems to this large care facility, which includes three flats to improve independent living, a communal area, and administration building, the team were asked back as part of the charity’s new extension plans.

The new extension would house a hot tub, which was important to the residents as hydrotherapy is known to soothe muscles and because of the buoyancy, those with cerebral palsy can experience a wider range of movement.

Hales & Coultas provided the following to support the project:

An Air Source Heat Pump was fitted to provide heating to the building; reducing running costs significantly and lowering carbon emissions

Low Surface Temperature (LST) radiators to avoid scalds with a fixed Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV) to sense the room’s air temperature and maintain warmth

Separate zone controls to allow for different temperatures across four areas

All heating, hot and cold-water pipework

Water supplied for the hot tub

Under sink water heaters to provide instant hot water within the changing rooms and toilet areas

Sanitary ware and equipment for the changing rooms and toilet.

The project, which was completed in around four months, is now open and residents are enjoying the new facilities.

Ian Millard, Manager at Lincolnshire House said: “Throughout the Hot Tub project, we have found Hales & Coultas to be very professional, supportive and responsive to our needs. When we have had any questions, Max has always responded promptly and everything explained in detail.

“The work has been completed to a high standard and all employees have maintained a tidy site. Since the completion of the project many of the residents and Day service users have benefitted from the hot tub which is both relaxing and therapeutic.

“We continue to use Hales & Coultas for other projects at Lincolnshire House which is clear evidence that we are very happy with the high standard of their work.”

Max Bushell, Hales & Coultas Heating and Plumbing Manager said: “We were delighted to be asked by Lincolnshire House to support their new hot tub extension project and it’s brilliant to see the difference that it is already making for the residents.

“We are proud to be a heating and plumbing partner of choice for the charity and that we were able to fulfil all of their requirements to provide a life-enhancing environment for people with cerebral palsy.

“Our friendly team of engineers are trained to provide all aspects of heating and plumbing, and electrical solutions for both commercial and domestic customers, and we are also renewables experts.”
