ABI install air temperature control equipment for councils and public buildingsComplex air handling requirements simplified

We appreciate that managing the air-conditioning and heating needs of various buildings can be a complicated and time-consuming task for councils.

It can be quite a feat coordinating different departments to schedule time for air conditioning or heating servicing, maintenance, upgrades or new installations too, but we’re here to help.

Experienced Assistance For Councils

ABI have the technical staff and project management experience to make the process as simple as possible.  The last thing you need is a contractor adding complications to the mix.

Whether you require cooling or heating services for your main council buildings, offices or other council-run services such as leisure facilities, libraries and museums, we can help you find the best balance of performance and budget to meet your needs.

It isn’t unusual for each department of the council to have completely different requirements and locations.  Often each will cater to different clients too, and this presents no problem!  The ABI team enjoy rising to the challenge presented by any air conditioning, heating and air management scenario and we will be delighted to hear from you.

Since the Merton rule became part of the UK’s national planning guidance and was adopted by many councils, ABI have been committed to ensuring we assist councils (or principle contractors employed by councils) in their requirements to abide by this rule when developing new facilities in excess of 1000sqm. The exact wording of the policy is as follows:

“The council will encourage the energy efficient design of buildings and their layout and orientation on site. All new non-residential developments above a threshold of 1,000sqm will be expected to incorporate renewable energy production equipment to provide at least 10% of predicted energy requirements…”

We aim to keep you updated on plant and equipment which can assist you in your compliance with guidelines such as the Merton rule when developing new sites.

Renewable Energy Sources & Heating

ABI can install a wide range of temperature control solutions, with more efficient air conditioning systems and incorporation of heat-pump technology for cost effective heating.

Heat pumps are increasingly replacing traditional electric and gas heating equipment, though Remeha Quinta Eco Plus equipment still provides a super-efficient heating and hot water system for many building owners and occupiers.  This video to the right (or below on mobile devices) gives more detail on this product.

It combines flue gas heat recovery technology and high boiler efficiency. This flue gas heat recovery system can assist with the Merton rule requirement to have renewable energy production equipment which contributes at least 10% of your buildings energy needs.

The boiler meets low carbon requirements for modern building owners and operators.   It constitutes some of the highest efficiency levels that have been achieved for heating and hot water technology. It is a ‘plug and go’, pre-planned, pre-wired system.

Its features include:

  • A BREEAM Excellent rating.
  • Recyclable materials.
  • Premix burner clean combustion.
  • High efficiency 100% NVC at 40/30 degrees.
  • Modular system – numerous modules can be added together for different building requirements.
