I’d be grateful if anyone could offer any advice on this.

I am aware that under Part L regs, any dwelling over 150m2 must be split into at least 2 separately controlled central heating zones. Does anybody know if this is also the case for non residential? I am currently pricing a community centre of approximately 250m2. The client hasn’t asked for separate zoning but is it something that I should be considering?

Any feedback welcome.

Thanks

I would offer it unless it was one large open space with a kitchen area at the end. If they have function rooms, changing rooms, any other assortment of rooms; then zoning allows them to be hates on demand and independentlyv of the main hall.

Obvious assumptions on the building layout here as you haven't given us any useful information.

Thanks for your reply.

I didn’t think separate rooms mattered. I thought the reg was just based on square metres.

I know I could offer it but I may be asked if it is a necessity. Do you know if this is the case?

Just for clarification, there are 3 large open areas and around 10 other separate smaller rooms. There will be around 26 radiators.

It’s not that separate rooms matter but they might want the control

Thanks Phill. They probably will but they will also have a budget so I’m pretty sure if I offer a cost option for separate zoning, they will ask me if it is a necessity or a luxury. I’d just like to be able to offer the correct info when asked.
