Dantherm Solution Enables Fully Funded ESCO Project


Leading charitable leisure trust Halo Leisure are set to reduce their annual energy expenditure by 25% with no capital expenditure required after becoming the first leisure trust to complete an energy saving ESCO project.


Dantherm are to generate over 2,800,000 kWh and 175,000 kWh savings in gas and electricity respectively per year after providing Halo with the latest energy saving solution for swimming pools.


As a result of the energy savings, carbon output will be reduced by over 600 tonnes per year.


The energy saving solutions installed at Bridgend Recreation Centre, Pyle Swimming Pool, Pencoed Swimming Pool and Ynysawdre Pool and Fitness Centre were implemented without the need for Capital Expenditure from Halo, or Bridgend County Borough Council, after funding was provided through investment vehicle Anesco Energy Services (South) Ltd. Benefiting from


a share of the energy savings, and with all operational and maintenance costs included in the ESCO contract, Halo Leisure will achieve an immediate reduction in their operating costs. The agreement will run for 12 years, after which time ownership of the efficiency measures and the whole share of the energy savings will pass to Halo Leisure. Dantherm delivered a full turnkey installation, with a particular focus on keeping each site safely open to the public whilst work was carried out. Site works started at the end of October 2013 at Ynysawdre Pool, and was completed with the commissioning of Bridgend Leisure Centre ahead of schedule in December 2013. Dantherm will warrant, maintain and monitor the performance of the equipment during the ESCO contract. Ian Furmidge, Managing Director of Dantherm Ltd, commented: “We modelled the energy savings that could be achieved at each of the four


sites, and we calculated that the energy savings at three of them could support the cost of completing a fourth installation where the existing equipment had reached the end of its life. This allowed Halo to redirect their capital budget towards improving the customer experience at the Bridgend Leisure Centre.” Andrew Talbot, Head of


Technical Services for Halo Leisure, commented: “As part of the contract to run eight leisure facilities for Bridgend County Borough Council Halo Leisure


is required to reduce its energy consumption by 2% per annum over the first ten years of the contract. This project has helped to deliver the full 20% saving at three of the centres Halo operates and significantly reduced energy at a fourth centre within year two of a 15 year contract. It has also meant that the replacement of the units was brought forward within the repairs and renewals plan.”

Designworks Tiles Showroom Launches During Clerkenwell Design Week


Designworks Tiles’ new St John Street showroom launched to great acclaim during Clerkenwell Design Week at the end of May thanks to a series of inspiring and fun events including seminars, a catwalk show, tile hand painting and a fun tropical beach party. Visitors to the showroom found a number of interesting features, from a colourful tiled arch ‘waterfall’ window feature that gives the impression of tiles cascading in a beautiful spectrum of colour. Six foot high concept panels portraying ideas of ‘Image’, ‘Trends’, ‘Scale’, ‘Innovation’ and ‘Format’ drew much attention, with the water jet cut likeness of a Picasso painting and mosaic representation of


the Queen merged with the iconic tumbling blocks pattern proving to stir much debate. Guests were particularly taken with the 15 metre colour wall that spans the length of the showroom. Filled with more than 900 different tile samples, the wall forms a spectrum of colour alongside neutrals. The colour wall was a big draw for those visiting, with many spending a considerable amount of time examining and touching the tile samples. A varied events programme saw Designworks


Tiles welcome visitors from all industries and job roles. Colour psychology expert Karen Haller’s seminars were standing room only, as the audience engaged on the evocative topic of colour, and a catwalk show of outfits crafted by mosaic artists from Designworks Tiles products was also a big hit.


A tile hand painting workshop, giving visitors the opportunity to express their creativity and learn about the heritage collection of tiles was offered by the company and the results were truly amazing with many people spending hours perfecting their custom design.
