Project overview

Klondyke Garden Centre in Polmont, Falkirk, reopened its doors in 2021 after a major refurbishment which included a large extension, additional retail space and a new 300-seater restaurant with separate coffee bar.

In the search for an environmentally friendly and reliable heating system, Klondyke was keen to avoid the use of chemical inhibitors for the heating system in the multi-million pound refurbishment. Inhibitors are generally used to prevent rust and internal corrosion from occurring inside heating systems.

Instead, it combined innovative monitoring technology with Geberit’s precision carbon steel pipes to achieve a long-lasting system which offers a high level of protection with early warning if problems should occur.
