Refurbishing the landmarks of Great Britain

Great Britain has a lot of old buildings and world renowned cathedrals. Listed buildings can be complex to work with. There is little that can be done to change the building fabric so the opportunity for improved efficiency lies with their heating and hot water systems.

See how Hamworthy has supplied boilers and water heaters to the churches, cathedrals and historical buildings across the UK.
