Theale Development, Berkshire

Specialist retirement home developer, Beechcroft, has installed Gaia wet underfloor heating throughout a new scheme in the village of Theale, Berkshire.

The new development comprises an exclusive collection of 27 one, two and three-bedroom apartments plus five new two- and three-bed townhouses. On the first day of the scheme’s official launch, in February 2016, more than 40 groups of people flocked to the showhouse and six of the new homes were reserved immediately.

Gaia’s wet underfloor heating is used in the ground floors of the five new houses to ensure warm, comfortable and energy-efficient living space, free of the clutter of wall-mounted radiators. “These houses are all high-spec homes intended for private sale and the developer wanted the best possible results,” explains Gaia, account manager, William Theobald.

Gaia installed the system over a total floorspace of approximately 330m2 and supplied WT-D digital display manual thermostats for installation in each room, ensuring maximum flexibility for temperature control.

“We completed our installation works in November 2015 and commissioned the systems for handover in July 2016,” says William. The development is now complete and the houses are fully occupied.
