Trinity recently completed the hand-over for the entire design and installation of the HVAC systems and sprinkler systems at Shipston Lodge, a seventy bed Nursing Home with two blocks of Premium Care assisted living accommodation consisting of twenty apartments.
The Care Home has a central plant room and the apartments all have their own combi boilers for heating and hot water, with a number Premium Rooms offering increased space.
The Nursing Home has a central plant room where the heating and hot water is generated. The heating is controlled by a central BMS with weather compensation. Communal lounges and Dining Rooms have Toshiba AC units locked to cooling only mode for the summer months.
Trinity will carry out annual plant servicing and be on call 24/7 for any breakdowns or Emergencies.
Trinity has been chosen to provide design and installation of HVAC on the new landmark headquarters for growing national company Aico Ltd.
Aico, a market leader in domestic fire and carbon monoxide (CO) detection, plans to move into the six acre Oswestry site in September and increase its workforce by ten to fifteen percent. Aico is expecting to increase its annual turnover to £150m within the next five years.
Trinity is responsible for the design and installation of systems including the air conditioning and heating systems.
Aaron Evans, Contracts Manager at Trinity said: “We are very proud and excited to have been awarded this major project, especially being in partnership with highly regarded Shrewsbury-based Morris Property who are leading the build. We are looking forward to delivering our part of the project on time and within budget.”
MEP engineering contractor Trinity, in conjunction with group company Butco Heating, has recently completed a major contract on the new Bridgnorth Station. Trinity were working for the main contractor, Iris Construction Projects, who are based in Ludlow, Shropshire.
The Trinity contract involved supplying preliminary planning, design and drawings for the mechanical services, heating, ventilation, plumbing and drainage.
Working over many months, the contract was delivered on time and on budget for the completely new building, which is in keeping with early 1900’s architecture and has exposed, polished copper pipes in all the lavatories. Important facilities include a restaurant, rest room, kitchen and bar, together with a separate food storage building.
Iris Construction, who specialise in the commercial, education and residential sectors, were very pleased with the result and have already started working with Butco on other projects.
One of the many hotel groups where we maintain all the electrical systems, including alarms, lighting and security is the Hyatt Hotel in Birmingham.
Butco Electrical, part of the Trinity Group carries out both reactive and planned maintenance plus refurbishment and new installations where required.
The Trinity torpedoes combined with their sister company's Butco Buccaneers, entered as one of the 27 teams at the Rotary Club Wolverhampton Event at Himley Hall last Sunday.
Although Trinity were not in the finals, a good time was had by all in their three races and, more importantly, managed to stay dry!
The event drew crowds of some 12,000 people and was aimed at raising funds for around 30 charities including Birmingham Cancer Research projects.

Lower Hall, in Shropshire
Earlier this year the new owner of a Grade II listed Tudor house ordered a completely new heating system.
Lower Hall in the village of Worfield, Shropshire built in circa. 1510, is a classic Tudor design with seven bedrooms and three floors plus a large cellar. It stands in 4 acres of magnificent grounds complete with a trout stream.
The substantial internal structure included many high strength timbers so the pipework to all the rooms had to be planned very carefully to avoid spoiling the decorative rooms. Due to the internal volume and requiring a high level of heating controls, two oil fired boilers were installed to give the owners total control of room by room temperatures.
A new oil storage tank complete with sonic tank gauge was also installed and piped into the boilers situated in the cellar. The whole installation was completed on time and on budget with the least amount of disruption to the house and owners.
The owner commented – “My decision to use your company was based on your positive, courteous manner, experience and professional approach to a large project and difficult installation. The engineers turned up promptly every day, updated us with their progress, discussed problems such as the issue with the oak beams and left everything tidy at the end of the day. The engineers were polite, hard-working and a credit to the company. The installation was completed on time, in budget and with minimal disruption to the household. It has been a pleasure to deal with such a professional, caring organisation and without any hesitation I would highly recommend your company to anyone.”
