University of Edinburgh CHP, George Square

20th October 2022

Durotan were contracted by Crownhouse Engineering Services to supply and install pre-insulated heating and chilled water pipes including excavation and reinstatement of trenches in the cobbled roads around George Square in the centre of Edinburgh.

The 250mm diameter pipe which link the new CHP plant and cooling station to University buildings were installed in a busy area during an exam period with minimum noise and disruption. The project was successfully completed within budget in a narrow time window to accommodate the activities of the Edinburgh Festival which take place annually in George Square.
