eco-park® Sustainable Car Park Ventilation has been specified for a major new contract in the heart of Bristol. The project, the re-development of Bristol’s iconic Electricity House building, is being handled by Crest Nicholson Homes.

Originally designed by acclaimed architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1930s, the six-storey Grade 2 listed building will be converted from a former retail and office space into 85 luxury city centre apartments. Many of the building’s original art-deco features will be restored and emphasis throughout will be on stylish, high-specification contemporary living spaces with concierge and secure parking. The eco-park® ventilation system will benefit the secure parking area in several ways. Average energy consumption will be cut by 50% whilst the system’s unique, ultra-slim twin-nozzle fans will mean less cabling, less excavation and less installation work. The fans will also provide better fume dilution, improved air quality and higher overall efficiency than any other induction or impulse fan on the market. Ernst Wehden, HC PVE director, comments: “The Electricity House re-development contract is the latest of more than 2.000 installations worldwide designed around the pioneering induction fan that underpins the eco-park® system. We are delighted to be associated with this prestigious, bespoke residency, which will benefit significantly from our low carbon technologies, low-impact design and energy efficiency.”
