52 ground source boreholes for heating and cooling managed offices in Northumberland

thumb after BeforeBlyth Workspace is a new contemporary building of around 3,000m2. The building is managed workspace aimed at businesses within the energy sector. The building itself is energy efficient and the construction includes photovoltaic solar panels and ground source heat pumps.

The 4 storey office block is the first stage in a redevelopment of Commissioners Quay in Blyth, Northumberland.  The site is just to the west of the estuary of the River Blyth.

Geowarmth have installed the ground source heating system. They ground loops comprise a network of 52 boreholes each 125m deep drilled in the grounds of the site. Ground loops feed in to Blyth Workspace and provision has been made for future buildings on the site by providing pipework connnections for these as well. This is one of the largest ground loop schemes seen in the North East of England.

The geology of the site comprises Quaternary (superficial) deposits of estuarine clays and sands underlain by grey mudstone and sandstones of the Middle Coal Measures formation of Upper Carboniferous age. Geowarmth undertook a thermal response test on the site to establish the ground conductivity.
