St. Boniface Roman Catholic Diocese
The farmhouse and barns were converted into highly modern offices for the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. The project delivers a total of 8,942 sq ft of office space which will house the Bishop’s Curial Offices for the administration of the Diocese.
Regional Director Bruce MacDonald: “The work…involves the conversion of the listed house and three substantial barns and fit out to provide first class, state of the art and distinctive, modern office accommodation in an historic agricultural setting. The project also involves ancillary works and mains services modifications as well as drainage. The collection of very aesthetically pleasing stone built buildings was originally converted from agricultural barns to premises suitable for office fit-out, including structural modifications.”
The main buildings were to be linked with a new fully glazed walkway and reception area. Due to the nature of the building and existing floor heights, the only solution was to fit a radiator. Added to the brief was that the radiator was to sit in front of glass, and no pipe work or valves was to be visible.
The building also had angled and curved walls, so finding a solution to these parameters would prove a challenge. Amber Management, a known and much respected engineering company, asked Hudevad to find a solution.
With Hudevad expertise, careful on-site measurements were made, and templates were produced so Hudevad could produce a multi-curved radiator in one section with hidden controls, flow and return pipework that could ensure easy installation whilst being concealed.
All main buildings are heated with Hudevad Plan radiators.
