forms of mechanical services including heating, plumbing, ventilation, air conditioning and building management systems, carried out a new installation of two boilers to heat 140 low surface temperature (LST) radiators and 1,000 litres of stored water.

To protect the plant, NCC installed two BoilerMag XL 1 ½ inch magnetic filters within the rooſtop plant room. Ideal for medium-sized commercial, retail or large residential properties, the cost-effective BoilerMag XL prevents the build- up of debris in central heating systems, reducing energy bills and increasing boiler life.

Paul French of NCC Mechanical Services said: “We installed two BoilerMag XLs to protect the heating system, helping ensure that the expensive plant is protected and given a long and efficient lifespan. We fit BoilerMag filters regularly as many of our projects are design-and-build, BoilerMag gives us peace of mind that we are protecting the systems for years to come.”

A brand-new care home development in Kent has invested in BoilerMag technology to protect its heating system and plant room from a build-up problem of ferrous oxide and scale. The Bostal Group developed West Hill Care Home offers a modern care facility with en-suite accommodation, catering for residents with dementia, physical disability, sensory impairment and younger adults requiring round-the-clock care.

Built upon the former site of West Hill Hospital in Dartford, the new, high-spec, five-storey healthcare facility includes a basement, 77 bedrooms, dementia care, cinema, hair salon and social spaces. The £6.6m project delivered an expertly considered care home in both design and delivery, meeting the requirements of its client and end-users.

The West Hill project brought about its challenges as NCC Mechanical Services needed to fit the required plant into a compact plant room that also had strict limits on the weight and location of heavy plant items. The BoilerMag XL’s dual- flow technology allows for water to filter twice on the first pass, removing virtually 100% of magnetic and non-magnetic debris from the system and saving much-needed space with its relatively compact design. With a stainless-steel construction and 10-year warranty, the XL offers effective, long-lasting protection for commercial heating systems.

For larger heating systems, BoilerMag also manufacture their XT range that is available in sizes 2” to 12” with an operating pressure of up to 12 bar and comes with an impressive 10- year warranty.


BRING JOY TO RESIDENTS Residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Zetland Court, in Bournemouth, have recently enjoyed a friendly visit from Copper and Zulu Warrior, two miniature therapy and wellbeing horses. The residents were delighted to meet the affectionate animals, who were happy to be petted and stroked. Amy Tite, co-owner of Crazy Creatures, led the two miniature horses all around the grounds and introduced them to the residents.

Taking part in this activity, 91-year-old resident Joyce Burrell said: “This is fantastic. It reminds me of when I was young and used to ride into school.”

Sophie Smith, one of Zetland Court’s Activities Coordinators, said: “It was really lovely to see the residents’ faces light up when the little horses came around and into the garden. They brought joy and calmness to our residents, which is wonderful for their mental health and wellbeing. Also, they were able to get very close and feel the horses’ breath, their manes and forelocks, and this was a particularly joyful experience for residents with visual problems.”

The Home’s Activities Coordinators said they are looking forward to Crazy Creatures’ next visit to Zetland Court, as the organisation owns a wide range of animals including dogs, tortoises, geckos and owls, among others.
