Titon Contributes to Award-Winning Conservation Scheme in Wiltshire - July 2011

Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus whole house ventilation units and CME1 Q Plus continuous mechanical extract units have been installed in Kingston Mills, a prestigious conservation project, in Bradford-Upon-Avon. The project has recently been awarded a Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) award in the Local Regeneration and Renewal category and in November 2012 was awarded the Best Regeneration Project at the 2012 Housebuilder Awards.

Titon’s ultra-efficient HRV1 Q Plus ventilation units (with heat recovery) have efficiencies of up to 91% and are helping all the houses on the development comply with Level Three of the Code for Sustainable Homes, as part of a joint venture with Galliford Try, Linden Homes and Fuseland.

Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus has been independently tested by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and is Energy Saving Trust (EST) Best Practice compliant. With a discreet but revolutionary design, the unit offers the kind of performance that has previously only been available from much larger and more costly products.

Tyson Anderson, Sales and Marketing Director, Titon, said: “The combination of very low power consumption and a highly efficient heat exchanger ensures that the HRV1 Q Plus is specifically designed and manufactured to enhance standard assessment procedure (SAP) performance via Appendix Q of Part L, yet small enough to be easily incorporated into apartments and houses where space is at a premium.”

The CME1 Q Plus incorporates a unique tilted impeller, single level ports and has a very large capacity of over 400m³/hr at reasonable static pressure, making it perfect for delivering System 3 of ADF ventilation for dwellings of up to approximately 300m² floor area. The unit’s unique design ensures it is not only very energy efficient but also very quiet too.

Thanks to its ground-breaking design, the CME1 Q Plus is also easy to clean and maintain and the unit can be serviced without the need to disturb any ductwork.

James Hurford, Linden Homes Commercial & Technical Director, said: “The CME1 Q Plus units from Titon 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.”

The restored conservation project offers around 170 one, two, three and four bedroom homes together with shops, a restaurant and some 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 planning and consultation.
