With efforts intensifying to deliver the sustainable living solutions needed for a greener future, Eurocell has collaborated with housebuilder Barratt Developments on a unique and innovative construction project based at the University of Salford campus.
The future of construction relies on 5G as the digital revolution continues to reimagine building sites. Construction’s near future promises self-driving vehicles and autonomous machinery, drones, 3D printing, and AR gadgetry, all designed to help build faster, with less manpower and fewer costly errors, all only made possible by emerging 5G.
The mild steel convector panel radiator is the most popular choice of domestic heating due to its low water content making it the most cost-effective and efficient heating solution. The waterways of the Ultraheat Compact 4 range have been manufactured to allow for better circulation and the convectors have been designed to increase the heat output, as well as the top grills being adapted so that they do not interfere with the flow of hot air.
To support the installation of EGGER’s Advanced Structural Flooring System, the team has created a step-by-step video of its fitting guide. It explains how to lay all three of EGGER’s P5 structural boards by following one of EGGER’s approved fitting methods.
Daikin’s Atherma 3 Monobloc is a powerful yet compact solution, ideally suited for applications where space is limited. As an all-in-one concept, all key hydraulics - such as the pump, flow sensor, and water pressure sensor - are included in the outdoor unit. The system requires no indoor unit, only a wiring centre, and a stand-alone domestic hot water tank.
