Boiler replacement

The project consisted of emergency boiler replacement to 256 apartments in winter from damaged boilers due to manufacturing defects.

MLM and 256 residents faced the prospect of an entire winter without heating or hot water due to problems with the existing new boilers which required replacement to the gas fired boilers.  This project was only capable of being done in the time frame with the close working relationship MLM has with the board of directors.

MLM set about organising this as a set of emergency works and completed the job quickly and efficiently with minimal interruption to services by coordinating the following:

  • Organised and planned for renewal through the introduction of specialist M and E consultants who designed a brief and specification which was tendered in the market.
  • MLM made an application to the FTT to dispense with the consultation requirements of Section 20 as these were emergency works
  • Organised for a temporary external gas fired boiler to be installed to ensure no loss of heat and hot water to the development whilst the works were undertaken.
  • We brought the project in on time and on budget of circa £250,000.
