The newly constructed Crooked Billet Elementary School is part of the Hatboro-Horsham School District. The original school was built in 1950, and was demolished in the summer of 2018, so that construction on this new school could begin. The name goes back to the Battle of Crooked Billet, a Revolutionary War battle, and was fought on the land where the school stands. This new school will be comprised of all children living within the borough of Hatboro, and will serve approximately 500 students from kindergarten through grade five.
UEP Northeast was contacted in the design phase by the projects mechanical engineer, Snyder-Hoffman. This firm designs many schools and prefers Firetube style condensing boilers, such as the Fulton Endura. This is due to its rugged construction and ability to be piped in a variable primary flow arrangement. This piping layout is simpler from an installation standpoint and more efficient from an operation standpoint. UEP Northeast has supplied hundreds of boilers to elementary, middle and high schools. This is mainly due to our partnership with Fulton and the high-quality boilers they manufacture – low maintenance, highly efficient, and 30+ year longevity – all important features for schools.
