Adveco named finalist in the 10th Anniversary Heating & Ventilation Review Awards

  • HR001 Heat Recovery Unit named finalist in Sustainable Product of the Year
  • MD Boiler Range named finalist in Commercial Heating Product of the Year

Adveco is proud to announce it has been named finalist in two categories in this, the tenth anniversary of the Heating & Ventilation Review (HVR) Awards.

The HVR Awards celebrate the products, brands, businesses and people that have led the way with their innovation and unrivalled levels of excellence, inducting them into the prestigious HVR Awards ‘Hall of Flame’.

Named finalist in the Sustainable Product of the Year category, the Adveco HR001 is a standalone Heat Recovery Unit providing a convenient, packaged unit to recover refrigerant system waste heat.

HR001 Heat Recovery UnitPerfect for commercial organisations that make use of large chiller or refrigeration technology as part of their day to day operations, such as restaurants and large scale catering facilities in hotels, schools or universities, and retailers holding frozen stock, the HR001 connects between fridge and freezer condenser units and a hot water installation. The HR001 utilises the waste heat generated by the compressor to indirectly pre-heat the incoming mains within a hot water installation and is capable of achieving temperatures as high as 50°C.

In the Commercial/Industrial Heating Product of the Year category, Adveco’s MD Boiler range, powered by Cosmogas, has also been named as a finalist.

The Adveco MD range of high-efficiency floor-standing condensing gas boilers units has been designed for commercial applications requiring consistent, very efficient and low emission heating for business-critical projects.

The range is composed of four boilers, with heat inputs from 70 to 280 kW and offers a heating temperature range of 20 – 80°C and is suitable for use with system pressures designed to provide a high capacity, reliable response to a building’s central heating demand.

Perfect for refurbishment of existing gas boiler systems where space is limited, the MD is also a core element of Adveco’s bespoke hybrid offerings to provide sustainable heating systems that can deliver the operational responsiveness required by larger-scale commercial systems.MD Boiler range

Adveco supplies MD boilers across a range of commercial sectors including hotels and leisure centres, restaurants, care estates, education estates, light industrial and government organisation facilities.

“As a proudly independent UK business with almost 50 years of heritage in the design, supply and servicing of business-critical systems we are extremely pleased to be recognised as finalists in this, the tenth anniversary year of the HVR Awards,”

said David O’Sullivan, managing director, Adveco.

“To have our expertise in sustainable systems for commercial heating highlighted in two awards feels like a win already. It’s a testament to our expert team who work so closely with our partners and customers to create and deliver bespoke applications for modern commercial operations. The MD boiler range and HR001 Heat Recovery Unit are both prime examples of this fantastic work.”

Adopting a streamlined approach for commercial building projects

As we fast approach the deadline for Brexit, the industry supporting the built environment, from construction to maintenance is braced for change. One key concern will be a widening skills gap, with the potential loss of skilled workers. Some have cited as many as one in five roles within construction alone will likely remain unfilled in the near to mid-term. In an industry that is already facing an engineering skills shortfall and interest in STEM subjects at schools struggling to gain the necessary traction to deliver enough apprentices and graduates to fulfil the industry’s future needs, practical responses are needed now to overcome threatened shortages of expert staff.

The other key post Brexit concern is undoubtedly the belief that costs will rise, at least initially, under new import tariff structures. Given that almost a quarter of parts and fixings used across built environment projects are currently sourced from the EU, there is bound to be an impact on a project’s bottom line.

So, the question is how can you mitigate costs on a project when faced with a loss of skilled onsite labour? One answer, and one that the Government supports, is the further development of offsite manufacture to streamline and modernise processes.

Offsite construction, or pre-fabrication, is a tried and tested way of bringing mechanical and electrical systems to a live construction site, countering the challenges of complexity, limited space, limited time and the need to work around other contractors. Under the post-Brexit scenario, offsite represents a practical way to address rising costs as well as a shortfall of experience on site.

Adveco has for many years specialised in the creation of bespoke systems and applications for the commercial built environment. It will size, design, and manufacture to order Packaged Plant Room enclosures suitable for placement beside or on top of buildings with a flat roof space. The plant room contains a variety of environmental systems for generating, managing and recovering energy for heating and domestic hot water (DHW) systems. With the increasing expectations on the built environment to be sustainable and show active efforts to reduce emissions during both construction and throughout the operational life of the building, offsite construction of low carbon power systems can be a particularly attractive response.

Manufacturing hot water, heating and low carbon systems away from the job in our purpose-built facility ensures improved production with optimal conditions provided for quality control and a reduction in wastage that can be found on a typical construction site.

When delivered to the project location, the plant room module can be easily sited, requiring just external pipework and final electrical connections to be completed. Those with the expertise to manage the final install are able to do so quickly and move onto other tasks more rapidly. Optimising the time of skilled workers accelerates project timelines which in turn can help offset other increasing costs that a project may now face.

Island Life Awaits

Mixed emotions as we bid a fond farewell to Chris and Natalie Howcroft, who after 40 combined years service at Adveco set off for a new life in the Greek Islands. They leave big shoes to fill in the engineering and service departments respectively.

Whilst Natalie’s heart is set on discovering the perfect Greek farmer’s cottage to renovate, Chris, as expected, has his eyes on a small boat and the potential for long peaceful hours of fishing!

 

 

 

 

 

Bon voyage and very best wishes for the future from the entire team.
