A COMPANY in Huddersfield providing surface cooling and heating systems for the construction industry is set to stage a major event.
Skelmanthorpe-based Velta is following up the success of its inaugural Sustainable Design and Construction Forum at the Galpharm Stadium last September with another event this spring.
The company, which linked up with Hanson Building Products, Stuarts Industrial Flooring and Creagh Concrete for last year’s event, will hold a similar in March – in London.
Lord’s Cricket Ground will be the setting for Velta’s London Forum on March 24. More than 150 delegates, including consultants to engineers and architects, will attend the event, which is aimed at professionals in the commercial, residential and industrial buildings market.
The event will provide building owners, managers, architects, contractors, consultants and property maintenance engineers with the latest knowledge in the development of thermo-active building systems (TABS) – including renovation solutions for cooling and heating offices.
Speakers will include Dr Rennie Chadwick, of VINCI Construction UK Ltd; Prof Doug King, of King Shaw Associates; David Firth, of Sir Robert McAlpine; and Prof Bjarne Olesen, of the University of Denmark.
Velta’s TABS allow existing energy to be utilised to provide environmentally-friendly heating and cooling to many large development schemes.
Velta managing director Gerald Kemp said: “Our first TABS event was such a success that we wanted to bring it to London.
“Lords is a fantastic venue and we’re expecting delegates from across the UK as well as overseas to attend, along with some additional high profile speakers within the specialist TABS field.”
