Originally offered the site by their architect who had an office in the building, Pollen Homes had to ensure for planning approval that at least 10% of the heating provision for the project was based on renewables. In any case, the developer is always looking at the latest technology with an eye on the ever changing energy efficiency regulations and the options for achieving higher EPC ratings and lower running costs.
Managing Director Jeremy Pollen approached IBD after an on-line web search for companies offering design and installation expertise for renewables projects. ” I had obtained a quote for the gas service, which was very expensive. Taking this into account it made IBD’s proposal to use Daikin heat pumps throughout all the apartments affordable. IBD offered the best option for providing systems without using gas,” says Jeremy.
