The construction industry is no different; using
the skills it possesses to accommodate the growing market for care and
residential homes. HVAC manufacturers are now well underway to recognising the
need to supply this potentially huge marketplace has for innovation and dealing
with the new challenges that are arising, especially the ongoing need for
sustainability throughout projects across Britain. Branksome Park Care home is
one of a number of homes in need of increasing its capacity to cope with
demand, including the latest underfloor heating (UFH) technology from Uponor.

The installation was carried out by 'UFH Now' based
in the South of England, one of a number of specialist UFH companies forming to
meet the increasing demands of the marketplace. As a specialist UFH Now ere
able to quote, design, install and commission the project, a responsibility
normally held with UFH manufacturers. The project to date has covered
approximate 2500m2 and required Uponors PEX20 pipework to supply a comfortable
sustainable heat source. (controls info needed)

UFH is ideal for nursing projects due to its
flexibility, high efficiency rating and low running costs. In particular; large
buildings benefit from underfloor heating because heat is only applied to the
occupied space, radiating from the floor upwards. In an environment where the
occupants need to be kept as comfortable as possible, UFH radiates heat upwards
virtually mimicking the ideal heat pattern for human comfort, employing a cool
head, warm feet approach. A radiator circulates the heat around the room often
resulting in hot and cold spots and also circulates dust and bacteria.

Getting rid of indoor radon

Getting rid of indoor radon

The biological treatment plant is worth its price

The Murto family, from Savonlinna, Finland, live in a sturdy log cabin built in 1845. The waste water system of the house had last been overhauled in the 1970s and the old concrete wells and absorption field had reached the end of their lifecycle. The choice was between renovating the old wells and getting an Uponor biological treatment plant, and the decision was not difficult to make.

Renovation of the district heating piping system of six housing companies

Six housing companies located in the Hurttivuori district in Turku have a joint heating plant – Nokikana Oy. The terraced houses, which were built between 1975 and 1977, contain a total of 104 flats. Heating and water are supplied to all flats by a joint heating plant. Renovating the piping system became a necessity due to leaks. The plant's insulated elements were renovated in such a way that all residents were able to live in their homes for the entire duration of the renovation.
