Delivering controls for heritage buildings

Published:  02 August, 2017

Priva, building management systems, controls

Priva has published a guide that shows how it is possible to future-proof heritage buildings with the same control-based techniques found in modern structures. The guide explains in clear language how Priva’s technology — which is in use at sites such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel — is delivering significant energy savings, improved indoor climate conditions and greater visibility of energy use.

Gavin Holvey, sales manager for the UK and Ireland, said, ‘Priva is on a mission to hep conservators and heritage organisations optimise the internal environments of special spaces. Working alongside the heritage buildings community, we can deliver significant outcomes, without impacting on the fabric of the building.

‘Our guide to “Future-proofing Britain’s historic buildings” will explain how such technology can improve building efficiency and reduce emissions through greater control of heating, ventilating and air-conditioning services.

‘Making a long-term choice about future-proofing technologies is one that conservators and heritage professionals will not take lightly. This is precisely why we have published this guide. It explains how our controls solutions are proven to meet three essential conservation requirements. It is unobtrusive, non-disruptive and flexible. This is what gives the heritage sector confidence in our technology.’
