The brief was to supply and install four new flues for a brand new plant room within historic buildings of Newcastle University.

The gas-fired Hoval SR Plus Type 3000 Boilers were connected using an ICS twin wall insulated flue. The twin wall flues were then connected to the Prima Plus single wall liners, which used to re-line the existing, stunning brick built chimney. This meant that the decorative chimney stack, which is such a feature of the site, was able to continue functioning as a working chimney. The flues were installed in a metal frame to securely hold them securely in place.

The installation work was carried out by a team of steeple jacks who accessed the inside of the chimney stack by abseiling down its length. Following the installation of the flues a new capping plate was placed at the top of the chimney.
