Ventilation specialist EnviroVent has won a major new contract with Birmingham City Council to supply and install 200 of its Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) Wall Mounted units in five blocks of 12 storey flats in Edington, Birmingham.
EnviroVent and one of its competitors supplied and installed their own PIV systems to four separate flats which were suffering severe issues with condensation and mould growth. Following a rigorous four-month trial comparative tests were carried out by Birmingham City Council of the two ventilation systems, which included closely monitoring running costs, performance rates, the quality of the installation, warranties and their maintenance periods. As a result of these trials, EnviroVent was selected, with the company scoring highly on the effectiveness of its PIV system in addressing condensation and mould growth.
In addition, EnviroVent demonstrated the low noise levels and running costs of its PIV units and that minimal maintenance is required, with a full service needed just once every five years. EnviroVent was able to demonstrate its extensive experience in working in the homes of tenants living in social housing.
Max Barratt, ventilation specialist for EnviroVent, said: “This is our first major contract win with Birmingham City Council, which we hope will deliver very positive benefits for its tenants. It was very satisfying to see the results of the in-depth trials by the council, which proved the effectiveness of our PIV systems and the fact that they are an affordable solution for the long-term. We are currently in the process of installing the units in the 200 flats, which should have immediate health benefits for tenants and for the fabric of the buildings.”
