Zehnder has supplied an MVHR system which uses ComfoTube ducting to provide a new residential development with a high quality ventilation solution. Located on the western edge of the beautiful village of Trumpington in Cambridge, Anstey Hall is a family owned Grade I listed venue.
Until recently, the hall’s agricultural buildings in the surrounding grounds have lain derelict and redundant. Recently planning permission was granted to convert these Grade II listed buildings into eight barn conversions and four new-build homes, creating a suite of spacious four and five bedroom properties.
Any systems requiring significant installation work or considerable and regular maintenance would not be suitable for the project. With this in mind, it was vital that Hill Bespoke Ltd chose a ducting and ventilation system which was adaptable, easy to install and maintain, and met specific standards in terms of energy and long term performance.
Having approached Zehnder with this project and the needs of the existing structure, Hill Bespoke Ltd was introduced to an MVHR system that used ComfoTube ducting : a semi-rigid design with a radial distribution design. Mike Beckett, Director of Hill Bespoke, was impressed by its ability to contribute to noise reduction due to its management of airflow as well as the reduction in energy performance across the entire ventilation system due to lower pressures. This, combined with the speed and flexibility of the installation process, convinced Mike that ComfoTube ducting was the perfect solution for the Anstey Hall Barn properties.
Mike said: "This project required ducting that not only met all the required standards and targets in terms of noise reduction, air changes and efficiency, but would also have the flexibility to fit in with a complex building structure. Having used Zehnder’s ComfoTube ducting and ventilation units on this project, I’m confident I won’t use any other system in the future. It met and surpassed all of our criteria and the installation was simple and cost-effective. We couldn’t ask for anything more.”
