Making Connections: Titon at Bridge House Project, London - September 2012
Titon’s highly efficient HRV1 Q Plus whole house ventilation units (with heat recovery) are being installed in 40 new apartments at Hackney Council’s Bridge House Garages development in Homerton, London. Constructed by Lovell, the project forms part of Hackney Council’s Six Estates regeneration programme.
The HRV1 Q Plus units were specified by Scott Edington, Senior Design Coordinator at Lovell. Commenting on Titon, he said: “With the specification of the project requiring us to use highly efficient units that could be installed in restricted apartment layouts, the HRV1 Q Plus units were the perfect choice. Overall, we’ve been really pleased with the technical support from Titon.”
The compact Titon HRV1 Q Plus 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 has previously only been available from much larger and more costly products.
Measuring just 600mm x 430mm x 285mm, the HRV1 Q Plus is suitable for properties with a kitchen and up to three additional wet rooms, but is predominantly aimed at applications where space is at a premium. Designed and manufactured by Titon in the UK with the architect, developer and contractor in mind, its small size makes it easier to fit where space is limited.
The Titon HRV1 Q Plus also helps to maximise SAP performance via Appendix Q of Part L, thanks to the combination of very low power consumption and a highly efficient heat exchanger (up to 91% efficient).
