Project overview

Mount Stewart is an 18th century house and garden in County Down, Northern Ireland, described by owners, The National Trust, as ‘one of the most inspiring and unusual homes and gardens under their remit.’

Currently coming towards the end of a three year restoration project, which includes the Grade A listed property’s building services, works have been carried out with sympathy to the historic surroundings and minimal impact on the environment.

As part of the refurbishment, the antiquated plumbing system – some parts dating back as far as 1908 – is being upgraded, with modern pipe replacing damaged areas and a zoning system created to keep occupants warm, while retaining as much of the original system as possible. The new heating configuration feeds 110 radiators, zoned for 32 rooms around the house, with upgraded and new piping courtesy of Geberit.
