On 28 June 2022, TGA’s David Warwick and Matt Cole presented at The Future of Heating in Historic Buildings Conference 2022, hosted by Fit for the Future Network at the fantastic St Mary’s Church, Marylebone, York Street, London.
The presentation focused on the Application of Heat Pumps in Historic Buildings (including a case study on Newcastle Cathedral).
The application of heat pumps in historic buildings requires a number of challenges to be addressed, including fabric performance, heating temperatures, electrical infrastructure and space for plant and distribution. The application of heat pumps in historic buildings therefore needs an integrated design approach, all undertaken in the context of the particular requirements imposed by the historic building environment, including the intrinsic value of the building fabric and the aesthetic qualities of the affected spaces. Using case studies of historic buildings (at various stages from design to construction) the presentation will demonstrated how heat pumps have been applied as part of the TGA’s Net Zero Carbon 10 Point Plan. The presentation demonstrated how TGA’s Building Performance and Consulting Engineer teams work seamlessly together with other members of the design, construction and operations teams from the outset of a project to optimise the buildings’ performance through design, construction and operation.
