The Chatterley Valley project

A scheme to build one of the world’s greenest business and logistics parks in
North Staffordshire. The pioneering new project called Blue Planet Chatterley
Valley was developed by Gazeley UK Ltd and hosts ultra-green sustainability
credentials for the 385,000sq ft (=35,585 m²) warehousing facility.  It combines a highly specified logistics warehouse with cutting edge sustainable technology in a cost efficient centralised distribution location.

The building allows for modern distribution requirements whilst satisfying the most rigorous Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies focused on operational cost saving and reducing carbon emissions. They aimed at delivering total operational cost savings of up to £189,000 per annum.

Uponor's involvement

Built by Main Contractor McLaren Construction, the Velta one industrial floor heating and cooling system was
incorporated directly into the ground bearing slab in conjunction with a laser
screed machine. It totalled to an area of 27,000 m² of Velta one industrial heating and cooling system. Working alongside Stuarts Industrial Flooring the pipework was
integrated into the slab without causing any time delays. Daily production of
up to 1,800 m² of completed floor incorporating the Velta one system were
achieved.

The benefits

The Velta one system provides many advantages:

• The heat is in the occupied working zone and provides an even
distribution of temperature.

• The system offers the flexibility to provide
high rise racking without the obstruction of fans or ductwork.

• No
requirement to clean or maintain the system, a marked contrast to visible
heating systems which require a separate maintenance expense.

• The system is
installed at the time of installing the concrete floor with a Laser Screed
Machine, providing super flat floors with great programme savings.

• High
energy efficiency

BREEAM certification

The project has been awarded an "Oustanding" classification
under the 2008 Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method
(BREEAM) ratings for environmental performance.
