Mitsubishi Electric has released its latest CPD guide, ‘Multi Residential Buildings: Heating, Hot Water and Ventilation’, to provide clear information on some of the UK’s most pressing building challenges.
Multi-residential buildings are usually medium and high-rise apartments, leased to private tenants, and they are a growing part of the UK property sector.
As with all dwellings, these buildings must comply with Building Regulations, and be designed to meet targets such as low-carbon construction and operation, while ensuring occupants have adequate ventilation and protection from overheating.
This guide considers these problems, their impact on the property market and looks at the technology that can support the design and operation of multi-residential buildings.
It discusses the importance of heat networks and heat pump technology as crucial technologies for decarbonising the UK, and explores the need for developers to consider these heating and hot water options for multi-residential buildings.
The guide also covers the growing focus on building occupant health, and how to combat the issue of overheating and maintain good indoor air quality when building new homes – including the role of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) technology, which extracts stale air continuously from the dwelling while recovering heat from the outgoing air.
“We’re seeing a large rise in the number of multi-residential properties being built,” says Graham Temple, Marketing Manager. “With these new developments happening under tight regulation and carbon restrictions, it’s time developers looked towards new technologies that can help them overcome building challenges in a sustainable manner.”
