Tenders are being invited from suitable contractors for the installation of a hybrid air source heat pump (with capacity 25kW at design conditions), with new highly efficient gas boiler (to provide a 'peak heating supply' during particularly cold periods), at Thorpe Astley Community Centre including. As part of the tender, the Council needs the following information:
1. proposed installation designs; including plant room fitout, equipment selection and hot water generation:

2. estimated operational savings based on current heating system;
3. estimated lifespan; and
