A FIRM providing surface heating and cooling systems for the property sector has completed a capital project.
Huddersfield-based Velta provided its TABS cooling system for the new London headquarters of CAFOD – the Catholic Overseas Development Agency.
The system will cool the five-storey building during the summer via a ground source heat pump.
Velta worked in partnership with the mechanical and engineering contractor to ensure the system was designed to work as required for the building. Velta’s TABS system provided a bespoke solution for heating and cooling – with Velta providing support from design to installation.
Velta’s TABS allow existing energy to be used to provide environmentally-friendly heating and cooling. Many development schemes are using it for projects in the UK and internationally.
Skelmanthorpe-based Velta has provided solutions for more than 1,000 buildings and installed more than 3m sq metres of TABS – embedded in the concrete structure – to provide a sustainable and energy-efficient solution for the heating and cooling of modern buildings.
Managing director Gerald Kemp said that an increasing focus on “green” issues and the reduction of carbon emissions meant owners and builders of new office schemes were becoming increasingly focused on constructing sustainable and energy efficient buildings.
Said Mr Kemp: “The benefit of installing this system for CAFOD’s headquarters is that it has provided them with an invisible, comfort cooling system with minimal maintenance required.
“It’s a cost effective, energy efficient solution – an excellent choice for office buildings of the future.”
Velta, which also has operations in Midlothian, Scotland, is part of the Uponor Corporation and works with construction professionals worldwide on surface heating and cooling solutions for major construction projects.
