Toshiba recently hosted an event at its Plymouth facility giving leading consultants and engineers an insight into the latest developments in air conditioning technology.
The event included a tour of the company’s European development support centre, which is equipped with R&D and test facilities for new air conditioning technology and controls.
Organised by Wayne Dolley, Toshiba’s South West regional sales manager, the day was attended by representatives from three leading consultants, AECOM, Hoare Lea and BME, all based in Plymouth, and from building services specialist Totus Engineering.
The programme covered how to speed up project design using Toshiba’s new web-based equipment selection and technical support tools. These include a SEER / SCOP calculation package, a refrigerant charge app, and fault code identification software.
Those attending received credits for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for undertaking Toshiba’s CIBSE-approved modules on BREEAM and EN378 Compliance and VRF Design and Selection.
Senior engineer at Building Mechanical Electrical Ltd (BME), Ivor Oatway, said: “Overall, it was excellent day, and provided an opportunity not only to see behind the scenes at a leading manufacturer, but update our own skills and knowledge. It is always good to keep abreast of current thinking and developments in the pipeline.”
