ATAG Commercial donated two Q60 boilers to the Blackpool Carers Centre as part of the DIY SOS Big Build for BBC Children in Need in July this year.
Hundreds of tradespeople gave their time, services and materials to transform the centre.
The ATAG Commercial boilers were specified by project manager, Dave Hinchcliffe from building services engineers SC Horsfield. He said: “When we started planning the heating system for the DIY SOS installation, ATAG Commercial’s Q boilers were top of the list. Their stainless steel heat exchangers are pretty much bombproof, while everything on the boiler, from programming through to commissioning and servicing is really simple. The units really are ‘plug and play’ as far as setup is concerned.”
He continued: “From a customer service point of view, we also knew we could rely 100% on ATAG Commercial. Given the on-site time constraints for this type of project, we couldn’t afford to have any delays and the support from the ATAG Commercial team was fantastic.”
Paul Martin, national sales manager for ATAG Commercial, added: “We are extremely proud to have contributed to this project. It is for such a great cause, providing services to carers of all ages. We know the main purpose is to make ‘A Better Life for Carers’ and, if ATAG Commercial is helping, even by simply providing heating and hot water, it is worthwhile.”
Michelle Smith, CEO of Blackpool Carers Centre, added: “We sincerely thank DIY SOS, BBC Children in Need and everyone else that has been involved. We are astonished by the efforts of the team, people who have donated materials and volunteers; the support has been beyond what we could have ever imagined. This renovation will enable us to help improve the lives of more children and young people with caring responsibilities who are in need of our support both now and in the years to come.”
Q Series boilers from ATAG Commercial have been specifically designed for larger homes and properties with high hot water demands.
