Leicester Cathedral have announced the re-interment of King Richard III, and to ensure that the new resting place is up to modern standards (as well as making sure it stands the test of time), they are building a brand new tomb, complete with underfloor heating for churches and other structural refurbishment works.

The new room is rendered with a line based composite for the flooring, which covers the intricate pipework of the heating system, and provides a strong, stable and insulating surface, which radiates the heat upwards. The brand new church heating system not only keeps visitors warm and comfortable, but also provides protection for the room by keeping damp at bay.

The church heating work is part of a £2,500,000 refurbishment plan which will also see structural integrity of the Cathedral improved, as well of course as the building of the final resting place for the last Plantagenet King of England, Richard III who dies in 1485 in the Battle of Bosworth Field at the age of 32.
