Titon Products Used:
Titon’s newly launched HRV1 Q Plus whole house ventilation units are being installed in a new development of affordable housing in Stratford, East London. The development of 55 flats with a basement car park was built by Bugler Developments for One Housing Group.
Designed by award-winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, the development is being built on the site of an old shirt factory and features two five-storey brick buildings which face each other across a shared landscaped court, creating a secure, private space at the heart of the scheme.
One building comprises 36 shared-ownership one, two and three bedroom flats, the other 19, mostly three bedroom properties for social rent, plus two wheelchair units and two 4-bed maisonettes. All the units are designed to Lifetime Homes standard and incorporate good space and generous storage.
The HRV1 Q Plus units were specified by Alan Wilding, Senior Surveyor at Bugler and installed by Promech Services of Grays, Essex.
Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus is the most efficient whole house ventilation (with heat recovery) unit of its type and size in the UK and has been independently tested by the BRE and is EST Best Practice compliant. Thanks to its discreet but revolutionary design, the unit offers the kind of performance that, up until now, has only been available from much larger and more costly products.
About Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus MVHR Unit
Measuring just 600mm x 430mm x 285mm its size belies its performance – the HRV1 Q Plus is suitable for properties with a kitchen and possibly up to 5 additional wet rooms, but is predominantly aimed at applications where space is at a premium. Designed and manufactured in the UK with the architect, developer and contractor in mind, its small size makes it easier to fit where space is limited, for example in flats.
The Titon HRV1 Q Plus also helps to maximize SAP performance via Appendix Q of Part L, thanks to the market leading combination of very low power consumption and a highly efficient heat exchanger (up to 91%). First showcased in the Eco House at Interbuild, the performance figures for the HRV1 Q Plus can also be accessed at www.sap-appendixq.org.uk.
