Genesis and Intergas – an award-winning partnership

Congratulations to Simon Bowles and Genesis Housing for winning the Energy Efficiency Regional Awards 2018 in the category of Small Scale Project. The judges recognised Genesis for delivering a successful energy saving project, while protecting the architect’s vision.

As all the boilers in two Hoxton apartment blocks were sited away from exterior walls, twin flues were needed. The problem was that the architect didn’t want those flue outlets spoiling the appearance of the exterior cladding. Simon and Dennis Harman of Intergas managed to find a solution that involved exporting twin flues and concentric flue terminal adaptors from the Netherlands to the UK for the first time. This could have been a long-winded bureaucratic process, but Intergas turned the paperwork around and created a new supply chain within just 12 weeks
