Energy consultancy FairHeat has been shortlisted for ‘Building Services Consultancy of the Year (up to 100 employees)’ at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
Founded in 2015, the consultancy firm is one of six up for award in February next year.
The CIBSE Building Performance Awards recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment.
The awards focus on actual, measured performance, not design intent or performance specifications.
FairHeat is an energy consultancy with a mission to get the best out of the UK’s heat networks, saving heat network operators and their residents, money and resources.
FairHeat has worked on heat networks across the UK, with its expertise gained from analysing performance data from almost 70 networks, serving more than 4,000 properties.
Gareth Jones, Managing Director of FairHeat, said: “Our knowledge, experience and exposure to real-life performance data enables us to take an uncompromising approach to reducing capital expenditure and increasing system efficiency, ensuring the correct decisions are made throughout the process.”
FairHeat works with clients across the lifecycle of heat network design and operation acting as the client’s representative using the principles laid out in the CIBSE Heat Network Code of Practice CP1.
Jones added: “We work hard to ensure that our clients’ networks are as efficient as they can be. This award is recognition of that hard work and the systems and procedures we have put in place, which are now being used by others in the sector.”
FairHeat developed a design supplement to act as a bridge between employer requirements and the Heat Network Code of Practice CP1, which was later adopted into CIBSE’s CP1 Client Checklist – with an acknowledgement in the final document.
FairHeat will find out if it has been successful at an awards ceremony on February, 7 at the Park Lane Hotel in London.
