The Sandymouth Holiday Resort in Bude, Cornwall, owned by Darwin Escapes, has been recently re-opened following a refurbishment.
Monodraught were specified to provide both natural ventilation and natural lighting systems to serve the restaurant and bar area. The X-Airs and Sunpipe systems serve the new restaurant area and bring an impressive amount of natural light and fresh air into the building.
The combination of natural ventilation with Monodraught's Sola-boost X-Air Systems and natural light from our Sunpipe Systems will ensure that the restaurant and bar area remains fresh and light throughout the day, providing economic and sustainability benefits including reduced carbon footprint and energy costs.
They will also improve the environment for staff and visitors, who now benefit from improved indoor air quality (IAQ) and a sense of well-being from having more natural light delivered inside the building.
There are many benefits to installing a Monodraught natural ventilation system. By using wind pressure and the natural stack effect of thermal buoyancy, natural ventilation does not use any fossil fuelled energy, but instead relies on harnessing wind power and the thermal rise of warm air to be used in a controlled and sophisticated way.
Monodraught Sunpipe systems are also cost-effective, and energy costs can be saved as the need for electric lighting during daytime hours is minimised by as much as 75 percent.
Monodraught stated: 'It’s gratifying to be part of this redevelopment and to know that our solutions can help contribute to the green ethos at Darwin Escapes. As a company they continue to build sustainability into all of their sites, from putting covers on swimming pools to maintain temperature, right through to providing bug hotels to maintain the local habitat.'
There has been mixed reaction to the Government's long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy from heating industry bodies.
The Strategy has unveiled phased out dates for the installation of fossil fuel heating, increased funding support for households purchasing heat pumps, and the rebalancing of environmental levies on electricity.
Humidity control specialist, Condair, has appointed Ryan Mooney, as a humidifier service engineer based out of London.
