SPONSORS WHAT’S NEW Belfast film industry is at the cutting edge N

orthern Ireland has today established itself as a major location for the film industry, with such colossus as HBO’s

Games of Thrones being filmed there. To keep up with the increasing demand, a major investment was recently made in a stateoftheart 120,000 sq ft studio space that has been built on a former landfill site in Belfast. Taking up a total of 8acres the North

Foreshore Studios today provides a flexible range of both indoor and outdoor facilities, which will make this a very attractive proposition that is bound to build on Northern

Ireland’s film industry’s success and gain it even more of a global focus. Working behind the scenes to maintain the

ambient temperature are well known players from the Grundfos pump family that includes members of the energy efficient MAGNA3 circulator range as well as a booster set that is a great performer and will ensure there is sufficient water where it is needed, when it is needed. We are sure that many new and existing

stars will be associated with these studios in years to come and Grundfos pumps will be there playing their own supporting role. To find out more about how the cast from

Malvern Hills & Black Mountains, Broadway is one of the finest members’ golf clubs in the Cotswolds. Following a dilapidation survey by


Evesham Mechanical Services Ltd it was concluded that the existing ASHPs were to be replaced with condensing boilers and associated equipment. Mikrofill supplied two Ethos 70kW stainless steel wall mounted boilers c/w integral shunt pumps. The boilers, with a collective turndown ratio of 20 > 1 serve an existing zoned radiator system aswell as a primary supply to HWS cylinders. The installation was unvented by way of a new pressurisation package that included a Mikrofill 3 filling device/fluid risk category

4 backflow preventer, a 200 litre expansion vessel and a service drain valve. The system design and installation was

carried out by long standing local contractor Evesham Mechanical Services Ltd. For more information on these and other

WEP is the first heat exchanger manufacturer to create BIM Level 2 models for its marketleading compact and high capacity Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger (BPHE) range. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a key component of the

government construction strategy, where it aims to deliver significant efficiencies to the government estate. But BIM is also being widely adopted in the private sector by clients who see the benefits of a common information platform for projects through the life of the building, structure or facility. Christer Frennfelt, SWEP country manager for the UK, said: “BIM in

SWEP design software SSP G7 means that SWEP can meet the needs of design engineers, contractors and design engineers, by providing 3D BIM models with project and asset information, documentation and related data. This enables designers to import the models and data directly into

their designs for HVAC or Heat Network systems.” The resulting benefits are:

uReduction in CAPEX, delivery and operational costs uReduced risk uImproved carbon performance uPredictable planning SWEP’s design software SSP G7

irflow Developments recently surprised one loyal customer –

announcing him as the winner of the company’s QuietAir Rewards promotion. Kevin Roberts from Nottingham was presented with the final grand prize, a new Ford Transit Custom van worth over £18,000, at his local Ford dealer in Derby. Kevin Roberts, of M.A.

Broughton Electrical Contractors

based in Langley Mill, was drawn from the many qualifying installers who had earned enough points during 2017 to qualify for the QuietAir Rewards prize draw. “I couldn’t believe it. You enter these things thinking, there’s no way you’re going to win and then I did,” said Kevin. “It’s brilliant, I’m actually sharing the van with two of the electricians at my company who need a bigger van – it’ll make our job a lot easier

and help the business be more effective. “Airflow is great, the company has loads of fans so finding one to suit any installation is easy. That’s why I always install them, especially in new build housing when you need something that is easy to install, reliable and aesthetically pleasing.” For further information on Airflow Developments’ QuietAir range visit:Range VISIT OUR WEBSITE:

2015. From April, these standards will stipulate that nondomestic landlords, including publicsector landlords, will not be able to continue letting any property, that has an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) in the worst performing rating bands of F or G. This puts those elements that are part of a building’s fixed services involving the heating, mechanical ventilation or air conditioning i.e. those services such as pumps that are attached to the fabric of the building, very much in the spotlight in terms of their contribution to the overall energy rating. Grundfos are typically able to


achieve savings of 3050% for customers via an Energy Check, as they point the way towards the optimal pump replacement that provide great energy savings. In addition, they achieve reliable operation, reduce both downtime and repair costs as well as being a major contributor to improving a buildings EPC rating.

ErP – we are ready

arm air, radiant and heating products are now affected by European regulations. Warm air heaters are subject to Lot 21 of


demand for better energy control. The SIPslice MBus

Level Converter supports MBus communications via RS232 and RS485 in applications where there is a requirement for data transfer over longer distances. Matt Gardner of

Synapsys Solutions said: “The increase in the costs of running a commercial building has led to a demand for

more information and a need to utilise the information which is provided by a building. “The SIPslice MBus Level

Converter meets this need by allowing different metering and control solutions to communicate through a simple interface to make an effective contribution to a reduction in energy usage.”

No let up for poor pump performance

he MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard) was originally introduced in

The changes to MEES will put

existing nondomestic buildings back onto the energy agenda, but with the savings that can be achieved through upgrading their pump portfolio for example, there are excellent reasons for any building that is over 5/10 years to review their pump performance as the resultant savings can be significant.
