Biomass Boiler, Roman Catholic Cathedral of St.John the Baptist, Norwich

Biomass Boiler, Roman Catholic Cathedral of St.John the Baptist, Norwich

John Youngs began work on a new Eco-Mass boiler for the cathedral after completing 'The Narthex' project in January 2010 as the cathedral decided to adopt a new-age approach to its use of natural resources.

John Youngs has equipped the Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Norwich with a 350kW biomass boiler fired by wood pellets. The boiler is linked to underfloor heating and floor-mounted fan convectors to force warm air into the cavernous building.

The boiler serves both the Edwardian cathedral and the new Narthex building, a visitor and education centre that was recently completed by John Youngs. (An existing gas-fired system has been retained as a back-up). Other features in the Narthex are a single large solar panel to supplement its hot water demand, and rainwater harvesting to flush its toilets.

The eco-moves are apt for the imposing cathedral as its diocesan theme for the year 2010 was Caring for God's Creation.
