A team of HVAC technical specialists is launching a new service to provide design expertise and systems for commercial developments.
UnderFloor Climate Management (UFCM), which is a part of the Polypipe group, will work with architects, developers and contractors to help deliver integrated underfloor heating systems for commercial projects including residential apartment buildings, hotels, student accommodation and office developments.
The service is headed up by Rachel Smith, UFCM managing director, who has a wealth of experience within the built environment sector. Andrew Coy, who has years of experience in developing heating products and systems for the residential and commercial heating market, joins the team as commercial director.
UFCM has been developed as a solution to the fast evolving landscape of the HVAC sector with net zero carbon targets, a move towards more renewable energy sources and a changing building design process drastically affecting the demands on heating design. These elements will impact on the requirements of developers looking to maximise the opportunities of the population growth and fast evolving skylines across the UK’s major city centres.
Rachel Smith, managing director, UnderFloor Climate Management said: “UFCM is here to work with architects and consultants to design and deliver sustainable, usable and comfortable heating systems for the new generation of residential tall buildings, and large developments that are transforming how we live, work and socialise in UK cities.
