G&H Projects help pupils learn about environmental technology as it installs ground source heat pumps

G&H Projects has been helping children learn about environmental technology as part of its work at a Leeds primary school.

Pupils of all ages took time out of their summer holidays to go back to Monk Fryston C of E Primary School to see G&H Projects install ground source heat pumps.

In total, eight holes 100 metres deep are being created by giant drills allowing for the pumps to be installed to warm the school.

G&H Projects Division Manager, Marc Ambler, said: “The team was really pleased to be able to explain to pupils how the ground source heat pump technology works as this type of community engagement is a key part of our ongoing commitment to CSR.

“The children really enjoyed seeing the giant machines drilling 100 metres into the earth and learning how the system will harnesses natural underground heat to warm their school.

“Our team was really impressed with how much they already knew about protecting the planet and the importance of reducing their carbon footprint.

“This bodes well for the future and we think it is really important to show children the practical side as well as the theory around being more sustainable.”

Monk Fryston C of E Primary School is part of the Sherburn, Tadcaster and Rural Multi-Academy Trust (STAR MAT).

G&H Projects has already delivered a large number of comprehensive plantroom refurbishments, fire alarm upgrades and LED lighting installations for other STAR MAT schools.
