“With many modern buildings pushing the boundaries of design whilst addressing requirements for sustainability, many are moving towards natural ventilation solutions.
“Air Terminal Devices (ATDs) can help reduce emissions and boost cost savings, whilst satisfying environmental requirements.

“We are proud to be associated with such high profile buildings and that we have products installed in four of those on the short list,” continues Rick.
Although aesthetics are a major consideration, when it comes to the selection of ATDs, the correct choice of engineered products can efficiently deliver conditioned air to the space while adding architectural features which complement the interior design.
