Case Study | Valli the Elephant

by UFH1

Providing Underfloor Heating solutions for unusual projects

Working with the team at Skandavale Monestry, we supplied a wall heating system for a brand new, purpose-designed home for Valli the Temple Elephant. Valli has been with the Monks at Skandavale Monestry since 1981, and for the last 30 years has been living next to the Shakti Temple with her keeper Swami Karuna.

Progress on Valli the Temple Elephant’s barn was really quick, building her new barn from hollow polystyrene bricks which stack upon each other just like Lego making the process extremely quick. They then pumped concrete into the bricks to make them strong. This system has been very successful, firstly because it is so quick to erect, and secondly because the polystyrene provides good insulation to keep Valli warm during the cold winter months.

The wall heating pipes were then fitted with tie-wraps to the steel framework between the polystyrene blocks and framework.
