The former Terry’s chocolate factory in York is been transformed into an exclusive housing development called “The Residence”, offering luxury living in a historic setting. This prominent 5 storey Grade II listed building is being carefully converted into over 170 stunning and spacious apartments and penthouses.
Evinox Energy worked closely with The PJ Livesey Group to provide a comprehensive district heating solution to suit this unique development. This includes the primary network design, prefabricated plant room skid, heat interface units, and ongoing service and maintenance of the plant room and HIU’s. In addition, Evinox will also provide a billing and full revenue management service, including fully itemised energy bills for residents and a billing app to manage their account online.
District Heating System
The district heat network that has been installed at the chocolate factory re-development, supplies the residents with thermal energy for heating and production of domestic hot water. The use of this type of system ensures that the listed façade of the building is maintained with no requirement for individual boilers and flues or a gas network around the building.
A district network offers considerable energy savings when compared to individual gas fired boilers, and greatly reduced carbon emissions for the scheme as a whole, which was very attractive to the developer The P J Livesey Group.
