Alternative Heat were engaged to design, manufacture, deliver and install PUCs for a 39No. apartment low-rise development located in Westminster, adhering to a tight project programme.

Multiple layouts were streamlined by Alternative Heat’s design team to create 2No. standardised PUC designs with handed option. Optimising scope for DFMA, whilst ensuring full compliance to consultant mechanical and electrical specification.

Each PUC was designed and fabricated with full mechanical, electrical and comms control equipment with a standardised layout for each apartment type.

This included full fitout to include HIU, MVHR, UFH manifold and controls, electrical consumer unit and Home Automation & IT System.

The application of a DFMA approach greatly streamlined production efficiencies and maximised the benefits of offsite fabrication. Enabling a build programme of under 7 weeks between design sign-off and final delivery to site.

Alternative Heat design and prefabrication capabilities ensured the PUC’s were delivered on time, on budget and FAT tested prior to sight dispatch.
