ON-SITE Vortice supplies ventilation systems to flagship development Liberty Place Liberty Place is a flagship development by David Wilson Homes in Warrington, Cheshire, comprising one and two bedroomed apartments . Vortice was approached to assist in the design and specification of energy efficient ventilation systems for this prestigious development and worked alongside Warrington’s Thomson Electrical to train their team in best practice for these heat recovery unit installations. The result has been excellent, with optimum system design followed by installation and commissioning excellence; this development is ideally placed to achieve the very best results and provide healthy, fresh air for its occupants. Vortice runs regular BPEC training courses aimed at installers from its Burton on Trent showroom. Rauvitherm pipework chosen for innovative new ad scheme From Rehau Gaunts Estate near Wimborne, Dorset is the site of three new district heating schemes, powered by three separate anaerobic digestion plants. Throughout the schemes, 1600m of REHAU’s flexible, pre-insulated RAUVITHERM pipework is being installed to connect the AD plants to the various farms, dwellings and countryside buildings on the estate. The pipework was specified by Derek Moss from Gaunts Estate who is overseeing the whole green energy installation, and was chosen as part of a supply and install package from specialist REHAU installers PES Limited of Coventry. The RAUVITHERM jointing system uses REHAU’s EVERLOC™ leak-proof compression sleeve technology which has been proven over 500 million times to deliver a permanent, leak free joint in underfloor heating and plumbing applications.

The old boilers were not only unreliable and less energy efficient, but the long external pipe run resulted in excessive heat loss, as did the five inch cast iron pipework delivering the hot water to the radiators in the building, all of which contributed to high fuel bills. The new Heat Only Boilers were installed on Keston’s Frame and Header Kit, which was delivered in prefabricated modules that were then quickly and easily assembled on site. Visit www.keston.co.uk info@keston.co.uk or call 01482 443005. enquiry number 907 Ambitious and progressive plumbing firm, WPJ Services Ltd of London, has taken the decision to incorporate Sentinel’s X100 Quick Test Kit – a simple and inexpensive tool that rapidly confirms correct inhibitor dosing – into its water treatment process. Each X100 Quick Test Kit comprises a clear tube, tablets, a colour chart and instructions. After dosing Sentinel X100 Inhibitor to a system, the installer takes a sample of system water using the clear tube, drops in two tablets, puts the lid on and shakes the tube. After a few minutes, the colour of the water sample should be compared to the colour chart, which will indicate if the system has been treated with an adequate amount of X100 inhibitor, or whether more is required.

Unite Students Stratford ONE project provides accommodation for over 1,000 students. Polypipe supplied a two tiered Permavoid geocellular attenuation system at podium level to collect rainwater run off from both the building roof and podium level. The podium discharge was conveyed via flow control outlets into a small 30m3 buried attenuation tank constructed with Polypipe Polystorm geocellular units in order to attain the site discharge rate of 42l/s. Permavoid Podium Deck provides ideal first stage rainwater interception and source control that can be easily integrated into an overall SUDS solution. Visit www.polypipe.com/terrain
