Chelmsford Centre to Take Advantage of Underfloor Heating
A new state-of-the-art community hub in Chelmsford, Essex is to take advantage of the energy-efficient nature of underfloor heating to keep the building cosy and bills down.
Plans for the new £2million project to replace the old Moulsham Lodge Community Centre which has been closed since 2005 have been approved, following a long campaign by locals, who have set up a trust to which Essex County Council has given a 125-year lease of the site.
Councillor Linda Mascot, one of the heads of the trust, said that their architect has used features such as underfloor heating to make the centre one of the most environmentally friendly in the county, confirming that we will have solar panels and underfloor heating, which will help to keep costs down.
The centre will also have conference facilities and a meeting hall, as well as a possible nursery. The plans demonstrate the increasing use of underfloor heating to provide warmth without the high cost associated with other methods.
