Maritime Hub, Ardrishaig

The Maritime Hub project was a renovation of an existing building with a new extension which included a museum and a communal space to be used for the local community. The project included a Mitsubishi Ecodan air source heat pump serving underfloor heating throughout, with the hot water demand being met with electrical point heaters. The heat pump was installed to MCS standards and is RHI compatible and the pumps used were twin head, Grundfos Magna3 pumps which provide failsafe and high flow rates. Anderson Floor warming was also involved with the Mapei Topcem screeding and Mapei Ultratop floor finish works. the finish chosen was a premium concrete-like look, extended up the wall & columns, and is hard-wearing to increase the lifetime of the building. This project presented unique challenges due to the proximity to water and the distance of the heat pump to the plant room.
