Scottish firm DM Design has recently invested £250,000 in a biomass boiler at its head office in Cumbernauld, Scotland. The Fitted Bedroom specialists will now save the equivalent of 50 large skiploads of landfill each year. It’s an ultra-high-spec 150kW boiler which is cleverly fed with wood from old kitchen and bedroom units which have been removed from customers’ homes.
The company is one of Scotland’s leading providers of kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms who have completed over 100,000 room transformations in over 30 years.
Interestingly, the unit also assists in removing dust ensuring the 30-strong factory team have a clean working environment and Operations director Ben Taylor is delighted with the installation. He said, “Putting in a biomass boiler was a no brainer. It saves 50 large skips-worth of waste going to landfill, heats our entire factory and lowers our heating bill by up to £10,000 a year.”
The company, which has five dedicated showrooms in Scotland – Cumbernauld, Kirkcaldy, Aberdeen and most recently, Livingston and Glasgow works closely with its local community and all of their showrooms display their most popular bathroom, kitchen and bedroom designs, with trained experts also on hand to give any advice that’s needed.
The company also actively works with charities. They’ve worked with the Beatson Cancer Charity, Scotia Aid, The STV Appeal and Cash for Kids, as well as hosting fundraising dinners for Epilepsy Scotland and the Nepal Earthquake Appeal. Founder of DM Design, Donald MacLeod, is a proud supporter of Nordoff Robins, a charity that provides music therapy services to adults and children throughout the UK.
