CASE STUDIES

We are particularly proud of them!
They show what we can do best and keep pushing us to surpass expectations – our case studies. They also show what is possible with our materials. Our products are suitable for commercial and commercial buildings as well as for single-family houses and apartment buildings. Let yourself be inspired by this excerpt of our realized projects.

Bunhill 2 Energy Center

CHALLENGE

The main challenge was the safety aspect of the flue system in the residential area. The client had to demonstrate a pull test using selected fixings on the cladded wall surface. They discovered a 25mm gap between the concrete structure and the back of the concrete cladded sheet and advised (along with the help of a structural engineer) on the type of fixing to be used and also the methodology of the installment. Another issue was the aesthetics of the flue system. Given the location of the flue in a busy London City Centre location, the Islington Borough Council requested a polyester powder coated to Ral 7005 mouse grey. As the chimney systems from Schiedel are available in any colour this customers‘ wish could easily be followed.

SOLUTION

As the chimney systems from Schiedel are available in any colour this customers‘ wish could easily be followed. The MF system is manufactured using 0.6mm thick grade fully welded inner liner, 0.5mm thick grade 304 stainless steel outer casing with 25mm thick rockwool insulation. The product is proven and pressure tested for use on applications up to 5,000 Pascal (H1) rating and therefore can be perfectly used for installations, whcih require a high safety standard.

Energy Center for the Agrocomplex “Martynovsky”

CHALLENGE

This project was realised in the year 2018 in Russia in a small village called Martynovsky in the Kurgan region. The greenhouse building needed an energy centre for the efficient operation of the building. Schiedel provided a unique approach in comparison to the other competition by providing an optimum solution with maximum simplicity without compromising on reliability and efficiency. Customer requirements were met by using our steel chimney system ICS 5000_50 DN800- 900-1000 and by installing big diameters. In total 200 running meters have been used.

SOLUTION

In order to accomplish the project and to overcome any upcoming difficulties Schiedel needed to adapt the initial specification of the project. In close cooperation with the customer the best solution was found and the suitable products were identified. As this project required the use of non-standard a-typical elements, these were exclusively produced for this project. Due to the close contact and good relationship with the customer the project was a huge success.

Glasgow Dental Hospital and School

CHALLENGE

On behalf of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Schiedel supplied and installed 4 ICS Plus condensing flue systems to service the Hamworthy Modumax WM250c/750 boilers at the Glasgow Dental Hospital. There were various factors which had to be considered during the installation process. Due to the main contractors’ requirements on-site, the external ICS Plus System Chimneys had to be installed prior to the positioning of the boilers to allow the contractor to weather seal the building.

SOLUTION

To meet the customer’s requirements an above roof level special bracing was required to support the chimneys due to the highly exposed location. Schiedel’s adjustable wall brackets were fixed to the steel bracing to support the flues at 2.5m centers. After this was done, a further site visit and survey following the installation of all boilers was undertaken to determine the final internal flue route. As the appliances were condensing appliances, a 3 degrees slope needed to be built in to the connecting flue pipes to allow for the high volume of condensation to be drained off effectively. This was achieved using special 93 degrees reducing tee component to connect to the vertical chimney. This required millimeter precision in both measurement and subsequent design, as the installation of the flues in the constricted Plant Room had to be completed with the avoidance of the previously installed services.

LCD Moscow – Residential complex

CHALLENGE

This project was also realized in Russia in the year 2019 in Kashira city, which is located in the Moscow region. In total 5 residential buildings of a varying number of storeys (between 8–15 floors) were built, which have their own infrastructure facilities on an area of around18.75 hectares. In this huge complex also a school, hospital and three kindergartens were integrated. Schiedel’s task was to build chimneys for the huge boiler, which will deliver heat to all of the buildings of the complex. In total three Schiedel ICS chimneys with insulation 50 mm, a height of 70 meters and a diameter of 1200 mm and 1000 mm were installed. The delivery to the facility and installation of the chimneys were under the control of the regional government. The close collaboration with the customer and the weekly reporting about the project development led this project to a successful end, managing to meet the tight timings of this project.

SOLUTION

To ensure that the project was running smoothly a large number of hours were spent on the construction site to be able to react immediately. Together with suppliers of steel holding structures, Schiedel was working on the method of fastening the chimneys. The development of fasteners was based on HILTI elements.

Center for data processing – SBERBANK

CHALLENGE

This has been one of the biggest projects for Schiedel Russia. For the first time in Russia, an HP5000 has been installed. This project was done for the Sberbank of Russia in Skolkovo, Moscow region and was kicked off in the year 2017. Installed was an HP5000 as well as an ICS5000. The length of each pipe was about 50 meters and a diameter 450 mm was used with an insulation thickness of 25 mm.

SOLUTION

As it was the first time for Schiedel Russia to install an HP 5000 and as it was a very big project as well, Schiedel sent steel experts from other Schiedel countries to Russia to conduct all relevant training and supervise the installation. To bring this interesting project to a successful end, Schiedel spends a large number of hours on-site at the facility together with the designers to accompany the installation process and support whenever needed.
