﻿Titon ventilation contributes to award-winning conservation project
Ventilation for a prestigious conservation project at Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire is provided by Titon HRV1 Q Plus whole-house ventilation units and CME1 Q Plus continuous mechanical extract units. The project, Kingston Mills, has been awarded a Royal Town Planning Institute award in the local regeneration and renewal category.
This restored conservation project offers around 170 homes with up to four bedrooms, shops, a restaurant and office space in an important town-centre riverside location. The aim of the restoration project is to create a seamless extension to the historic and vibrant town centre and is the culmination of many years of planning and consultation.
The HRV1 units incorporate heat recovery and have efficiencies of up to 91%. They are helping all the houses on the development comply with Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes as part of a joint venture with Galliford Try, Linden Homes and Fuseland.
CME1 units have a capacity of over 400 m3/h at a reasonable static pressure, making them suitable for delivering System 3 of Approved Document F for dwellings up to about 300 m2 floor area.
James Hurford, commercial and technical director with Linden Homes, said, ‘The CME1 Q Plus units provided a good ventilation solution for our requirements as they are energy efficient and easy to fit. They are proving very quiet in operation, even at full boost — making them perfect for the Kingston Mills development.’
