British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia is celebrating winning the ‘Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year’ accolade at the prestigious Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Awards 2017.
Scooping the award for its revolutionary Sentinel Kinetic Advance Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR), the Sussex-based company received the award at Grosvenor House, Park Lane in London on Tuesday 7th February.
Now in their 10th year, the awards recognise excellence in the built environment. This year over 750 people came to hear England International rugby star, Matt Dawson, announce the winners. The CIBSE Building Performance Awards recognise outstanding new and innovative products which significantly improve building performance. The awards focus on actual, measured performance, not design intent or performance specifications so only proven products are shortlisted and award winners are acknowledged as best in class.
Judged by a distinguished panel of industry leaders the ‘Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year’ award recognises building services solutions that reduce the amount of energy used in buildings through the efficient use of energy by the innovation itself. Following a rigorous judging process the Sentinel Kinetic Advance was chosen as the winner.
Ian Mitchell, product marketing manager – New Build Residential, said: “We are delighted that our innovative Sentinel Kinetic Advance MVHR has won the Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year award. To be recognised by the industry in this manner, and in such important awards for the built environment, is a real honour.”
