As ambitious build plans for the UK’s New Hospital Programme are set in motion, a report from REHAU is highlighting the importance of healthy design in long-lasting healthcare facilities.
With decarbonisation legislation continuing to tighten in the UK, polymer specialist REHAU has carried out a CO2 emissions analysis for contractors.
Building specifiers and contractors are advised to put healthy design principles first when adapting existing structures according to REHAU, following cautions from the Climate Change Committee (CCC) about overheating buildings.
With the impending Boiler Upgrade Scheme set to accelerate the UK heat pump rollout, local manufacturing and support will be key to addressing demand for remote installations, says a sector expert from REHAU.
In an effort to offer greater flexibility to contractors in the supply and installation of district heating networks, polymer pipework specialist REHAU is launching a new range of modular tee fittings.
Polymer pipework specialist REHAU will showcase its market-leading polymer district heating solutions at Futurebuild 2022, from 1 – 3 March.
The Government’s Heat and Buildings Strategy is a welcome development in decarbonising the UK heating sector, but must be supported by further policy if net zero is to be achieved, according to polymer pipework specialist REHAU.
Polymer specialist REHAU warns current sustainable design must mitigate overheating in buildings as heatwaves become more prevalent.
