HC PVE introduce free air quality assessments

The quality of air we breathe daily is one of the greatest concerns and threats to people across the globe. In Europe alone over 40 million people suffer from asthma and allergies caused or related to bad indoor air quality.

We feel it is our mission not only to design state of the art ventilation systems but also to educate and advise on all aspects of air quality. For this reason, we have introduced a new section within our web site where the developer can secure an air quality assessment document at design stage. This will ensure that the system being installed will provide clean air in all corners of their development all day every day.
