Boilers and Building Management Systems

Following surveys by a specialist consultant on our Boilers and Building Management Systems (BMS) on many of our stations, we found that it is necessary to replace the equipment at most of our main buildings. The boilers have past their life expectancy, which is approximately 20 years. The BMS controls the heating and cooling of buildings and contains equipment that is over 20 years old when their life expectancy is about 15 years, which means that both are not providing the correct levels of comfort to people working in the buildings and the energy efficiency low causing the Force to spend more on energy. The conclusion of the report was that we should replace boilers and BMS at several of our main stations with more efficient boilers and equipment, which should be matching systems and will be appropriate for the Estates & Facilities department to operate and regulate the heating and cooling.
