Total Synergy 

Visit Total Synergy on stand 418

Built environment design business and project management software specialist Total Synergy is heading to CIBSE Build2Perform to exhibit for its second year

Following on from a successful show in 2018, Total Synergy regional manager Damiaan van Zanen said he was looking forward to showing the UK’s leading building services engineers how far Synergy has progressed in 12 months.

“Often at exhibition trade shows like this we find most people are there to look at things like mechanical and electrical and fire safety systems — our software is all about improving business and project performance,” Mr van Zanen said.

“We were pleasantly surprised at how many directors and owners we met who were there to make serious decisions about not only improving building performance but improving their own business performance with software like Synergy.”

Synergy is business and project management software used by architects and engineers to make business life easier. It’s designed and built only for the architecture, engineering and construction design industry (AEC).

Synergy helps built environment design businesses get organised to deliver every project on time and budget, stay on track by knowing the true value of projects, and work better together across the whole project team to bring clarity to complexity.

Mr van Zanen said Synergy software has developed and grown fast over the last 18 months.

“Since we exhibited at CIBSE Build2Perform in 2018, Synergy has added many new features and functions designed to help building services engineers improve their business and project management processes and find more time for design engineering,” he said.

“We’ve added features like our project planning board Gantt chart with resource planning, forecasting and a staff availability planner; we’ve added multi-office to help businesses manage multiple office locations or business units; we’ve added multi-currency invoicing for companies billing in more than one currency; and we’ve made enhancements to our project portals, timesheets, budgeting and work breakdown structures and lots more.

“I think Synergy might be the fastest moving product that exclusively serves built environment design businesses,” Mr van Zanen said.

“By the time we’re at Build2Perform, we’ll also reveal two more huge new features — earned value management and pre-billing.”

Synergy offers a supported 30-day free trial with no commitments.

Bespoke offsite heating solutions from Remeha

Tight project schedules to meet? Plant room space constraints and access restrictions? On projects like these, it might be worth considering applying a bespoke heating solution.

Good quality installation is key to achieving long-term efficient building performance. But as consultant engineers know only too well, it’s often carried out in challenging circumstances.

Remeha’s offsite-manufactured rig systems simplify multi-boiler installations, offering almost limitless design flexibility to achieve the ultimate in rapid, high-quality installation.

Typically, manufacturers will provide site-assembled linear and back-to-back cascade options for two to ten wall-hung boilers. While these will simplify and speed up installation, a key benefit of Remeha’s bespoke offsite rig solutions is that all project and site requirements can be addressed and resolved from the outset, at the design stage.

So how does it work? The bespoke rig is based on individual boilers from 30kW to 300kW output, with no limit to the number that can be incorporated. Depending on the available space, the designer can specify a preferred layout, such as in-line, back-to-back, ‘L’ shaped or any other type, and specify which header extensions and connections are used.

The rig can additionally integrate project-specific controls such as weather compensation, sequencing or Building Management System direct operation to maximise seasonal efficiency for lower running costs.

A futher option is to integrate a Plate Heat Exchanger into the design to achieve hydraulic separation. Air-dirt separation can also be installed to protect the PHE from older retained secondary pipework

Only once the design is clearly defined does production take place. This is carried out in a factory environment with quality-controlled end-of-line testing providing added quality assurance. The boilers can then be delivered to site on a wheeled unit or be designed to split into smaller modules for simple re-connection in buildings where access is particularly restricted.

As even the position and size of the system connections on the rig can be produced to match the existing system pipework in the plant room, it is ready for rapid, easy connection to the system.

Importantly, this bespoke, offsite Remeha solution benefits the entire project team as the cost, size and specification are all fixed and in place, helping keep the project on time and on budget.

Ultimately, Remeha offers consultant engineers greater design flexibility to meet the project and customer requirements, and the full assurance that the specification will be met.

Engineering excellence since 1935.

HERZ HIU passes the BESA Test and becomes one of the first manufacturers to have a HIU tested to the BESA UK HIU Test Regime October 2018.

In Communal or Heat Network schemes, Heat Interface Units (HIU) are being installed to deliver heating and hot water from centralised plant to individual dwellings within the network.

A poorly performing HIU can have a dramatic effect on the efficiency of a Heat Network. This has led to a desire for some standardisation and guidelines for HIUs. The BSRIA Guide BG62/2015 and the CIBSE CP1 2015 Heat Networks: Code of Practice for the UK, have gone a long way in starting this process.

The BESA UK HIU Test Regime has also been developed as a benchmark and will be referred to in the newly updated CIBSE CP1.2 as best practice guidelines.

The BESA tested Guildford indirect HIU is suitable for both radiator and underfloor tertiary systems. HERZ decided to test the HIU at BSRIA, UKAS accredited for the BESA test regime October 2018, due to their world-renowned reputation.

HERZ manufacture a full complement of HIUs (Indirect, Direct, DHW only and HTG only) to meet the varying installations, ensuring most of the components in the HIUs are HERZ manufactured and common across all HIUs. The methods for controlling DHW & heating are identical across all units achieving the same results.

Herz also manufacture a full range of energy efficient products perfect for the modern demands for climate control in energy efficient buildings.

Come and see us for a chat and see the range of innovative HIU and energy efficient products.

Coming soon to the Building Centre WC1

Elysator UK are delighted to confirm our presence at the Building Centre in Fitzrovia, WC1. The Building Centre exists to promote innovation in the built environment and is the perfect site to showcase our range of ground-breaking chemical-free water treatment products.

There are many benefits of the Elysator technology. Convincing arguments to support its use can be made on various grounds: commercial, environmental, effectiveness, business impact, safety and ease of use among them.

Many solutions that are intended to offer an environmental benefit require compromises to be made. These may revolve around the effectiveness of a product, more often they will centre on price; green tech invariably carries a premium.

This is not the case with Elysator.

The outright cost of the equipment is often considerably less than that of a single chemical-flush - in larger systems the savings are even greater. Once the initial purchase is made, ongoing maintenance costs are minimal and service life is extended.

Environmentally friendly yet truly effective, Elysator has consistently proven to be more efficient than the product it is intended to replace. Retrofittable, the impact on business operation is minimal, often requiring no system downtime and, absent of any requirements for COSHH compliance, it is safer to use and easier to maintain.

Elysator delivers a solution that is truly viable on every level.

The Donna Louise Hospice receives generous donation from TF Solutions and Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK

The Donna Louise Hospice receives generous donation from TF Solutions and Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK

TF Solutions have partnered with Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK, along with Pump House and Connex Banninger Maxipro, to supply and install a Heat Recovery VRF air conditioning system at The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice in Staffordshire.

Taking its name from a young local girl, Donna Louise Hackney, who sadly died from a life-limiting condition at the age of sixteen, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice was first registered as a charity in 1999; responding to the need for a children’s hospice for both Staffordshire and Cheshire.  Fundraising allowed for a community nursing team to be established in 2002; providing care for children and families in their homes.  In August 2003 the doors opened on a purpose-built and fully equipped hospice to ensure that a high-quality palliative care service is available in the local area.

TF Solutions is one of the largest distributors of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment in the UK and has supported The Donna Louise Hospice as their nominated charity over the last 10 years, through numerous fundraising events. Supported by an array of volunteers, this donation is the second occasion that TF Solutions have collaborated with long-term partner Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK to supply and install air conditioning equipment into the hospice; the first being back in 2015.

Dedicating time to install the project, Simon Dunkley, Managing Director of The Air Conditioning Company said: “It’s such a pleasure to be able to give time and resource to assist with such a worthy cause.  The installation serves a mixture of bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways and offices.  Ducted units were used and located in the loft space to allow any service activities to take place in the future, without having to disturb any families occupying quite sensitive areas.”

Speaking about the system selection, Ian Carroll, Chief Operating Officer, Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK said:  “The adjustable external static pressure on each of the ducted units meant that the air movement through each room could be carefully set to the most appropriate level, creating a noise and draught free environment. Individual control was provided to each area for complete localisation in terms of environment.  Being a not-for-profit organisation, operating costs are always a primary concern for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, so the highly efficient Airstage VR-II Heat Recovery system was ideal. This is much more cost effective than an alternative wet heating system; with the added benefit of the cooling aspect, will create a perfect comfort level all year round”

Jane Jones, Head of Care at The Donna Louise Hospice said: “This amazing gift has made such a big difference to the children, young people and families.  The staff love it too! Many of the children who spend a lot of time in wheelchairs get so warm and uncomfortable. Many suffer from painful muscles and can’t sleep well due to overheating, but not anymore.” She continued; “We have had such positive comments from parents, all saying what a generous gift this is.

The team from TF Solutions and their helpers were so friendly and accommodating and really put the needs of the children and young people first; often changing their plans at short notice. A big thank you to all involved, we really are bowled over by your generosity and support.”

Both Fujitsu and TF Solutions are proud to sponsor such a worthy cause. Andy Cherrill, Managing Director, TF Solutions said: “Each time we do something to support this fantastic Hospice it makes me extremely proud.  As before we have called upon others to support TF in making this installation happen and I can’t thank enough Fujitsu, my team here at TF and the very generous group of customers who gave up their time to help.  Visiting the Hospice is always a wonderful experience, meeting the children, families and staff, who are always so happy and full of life. Continuing to do anything to make the children more comfortable through challenging times is what TF will endeavour to do. “

TF Solutions would like to thank all other companies involved for the time given to the project: 316 Building Services Ltd, Active AI, Bailey Air Conditioning, Castle Climate, Climate and Power.

A company known historically for large output cast iron sectional boilers is not necessarily the first name that falls of the tongue when it comes to setting the standard for the next generation of ultra-low NOx gas condensing boilers. But that is exactly what Strebel is now doing with both the S-CBX wall hung range as well as S-FX floor standing models.

Up until recently new construction projects generally called for the BREEAM 2014 NOx emission requirements that were set at 40 mg/kWh enabling projects to gain 3 credits for this level of ‘pollution’. However, this has now been replaced with the publication of new lower emission limits contained in BREEAM’s UK New Construction 2018 1.0 (Technical Manual SD5078) which state that 1 credit will be gained for NOx emissions less than 27mg/kWh and 2 points for less than 24mg/kWh.

Such a big reduction in the level of NOx emissions might be considered challenging for manufacturers to respond to – whilst at the same time maintaining levels of gross seasonal efficiency.

However, Strebel has managed to achieve an admirable balance of these two performance criteria. All models within the S-CBX and S-FX boiler ranges combine ultra-low NOx emissions (all models lower than 24mg/kWh) with excellent seasonal efficiency (all models offer over 95% when calculated to Part L method).

Not only this but the boilers are all manufactured using corrosion resistant stainless steel heat exchangers offering excellent longevity of operation.

Technical details are available online with BIM drawings available at the BIMSTORE as well as through links from the company website.

5000th installation celebrated with charity donation

Students spend many of their formative years in school and around 70% of that time is spent indoors. A comfortable environment supports students to achieve their potential and obtain the best possible results. Using the correct ventilation solution enables good air quality to be maintained, using a low-energy system minimises the impact on school budgets.

Together with Buckinghamshire Mind, Monodraught aim to support 5,000 students through mental health awareness assemblies.

Monodraught are marking this landmark 5,000th installation by providing a grant to our charity partner Buckinghamshire Mind. The donation enables the charity to offer free mental health awareness assemblies in the Buckinghamshire region in the next few months. 

This donation cements our charity partnership and allows us to make a positive contribution to our local community. It is the second time we have been able to support this awareness initiative.

“A significant proportion of our natural ventilation systems are installed in schools, universities and colleges throughout the UK. We are pleased to have the opportunity to make a financial contribution to support this valuable mental health work taking place in schools in our home region.” 

Andrew McCubbin, Managing Director, Monodraught

Supporting mental health awareness in schools.

The objective of the assemblies is to help educate children and young people to enable them to open-up and talk about mental health in school, at home and with friends.

The assemblies cover important aspects of mental health including:

  • The importance of talking about emotions and feelings
  • Everyone has mental health
  • Mental and physical health are as important as each other
  • Mental health problems can affect how we think, feel and behave
  • Breaking down the stigma around mental health

To find out more about the free mental health awareness assemblies – contact Buckinghamshire Mind.
