PVE respond to the critical issues highlighted by European Union’s first fire safety debate

The European Parliament held its first ever debate on fire safety on 13th September, in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy and, with the failure of buildings across the UK to pass fire safety tests, PVE are responding to significant and serious concerns regarding the possible dangers of outdated and poorly functioning car park ventilation systems. Our new website highlights issues facing construction companies and developers throughout the UK.

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.

This unique engineered document/report is available free of charge to developers and can be used as the system specification for air quality and for purposes of planning applications. The full and final report will then be issued as part of the contract and should in reality form part of any technical submission put forward for building approval.
