Colour your space

Boss Design has launched a striking colour palette of painted frame options for its extensive range of commercial furniture. Offering endless design permutations, a choice of eight colours may be applied to the underframes, tables, legs, and arms of most of Boss Design’s upholstered seating and table collections.
Whether it’s to simply add colour to a design scheme or to echo corporate branding, the eight RAL colours include orange, black, white, purple, grey, green, blue and yellow. Designed to complement chrome and natural wood frames, the new options follow meticulous market research that has recently been conducted by the company.
With the inclusion of colour, designers now have the added freedom to create bright and energetic schemes across all interiors.The colours can be selected to blend with other colours in the design scheme or mixed with contrasting bolder colours to create a high impact look. Furthermore, the addition of patterned upholstery can help bring an array of interiors to lie.
Eve Fitzhenry, Marketing Manager at Boss Design, comments: “After years of neutral shades and minimalist designs, bold patterns and colours are back with a vengeance and now play a central role in the design scheme. More really is more when it comes to colour, and painted frames help set the mood and tone of the surrounding environment.
“Just as accent shades have the ability to change the whole narrative of a neutral scheme, coloured furniture can help enhance mood and encourage positive emotions. This is particularly important in the workplace where the wellbeing of employees is paramount,” adds Eve.
To achieve the perfect look, the new frame options can be teamed with an assortment of coordinating fabrics recommended by Boss Design.


Polypipe Terrain renamed under plans to boost commercial construction offering

Polypipe, the UK’s leading manufacturer of climate and water management solutions, has renamed one of its most recognisable divisions.
The FTSE 250-listed multinational announced its commercial drainage division, Polypipe Terrain, will now be known as Polypipe Building Services to further enhance its standing in the commercial construction sector.
Under the new moniker, which was launched in January, Polypipe announced it would be expanding its range of products and services for its target market.
Led by managing director Simon Howard, Polypipe Building Services will be home to brands such as Terrain, with a range of new products broadening the offer through 2019 and beyond.
“Our flagship Terrain brand has long been the number one choice in engineered drainage solutions,” Howard said. “However, our customers rely on us for far more than just product supply – it’s our technical expertise, our ingenuity in fabrication and our focus on service that keep us held in high regard to consultants and contractors.
“As Polypipe Building Services, we’ll not only continue to be the leaders in commercial drainage with our Terrain systems, but we’ll be able to apply our expertise and manufacturing capability to an extended portfolio of systems and solutions, enabling us to be a true partner on every commercial project that we touch.”
As part of the move, the company added that its fabrication and customer experience services will be significantly enhanced, while new products and services will be launched later this year.


Vaillant Shortlisted For Two H&V News Awards

Vaillant has been announced as a finalist in two categories for the coveted H&V News awards, Collaboration of the Year and District Heating Project of the Year, for its innovative application of heat pumps in social housing environments.
This year celebrating its silver anniversary, the H&V News Awards is the longest running and largest ceremony for the building services industry – dedicated to rewarding excellence across the sector. Winners will be announced on 25 April, during a prestigious event at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
Earning its place on the Collaboration of the Year shortlist, Vaillant’s submission detailed a project with Derby Homes, in which Vaillant installed its aroTHERM air source heat pumps on the balconies of 54 flats.
Beyond specification and installation, Vaillant liaised directly with tenants to demonstrate the heat pumps and explain the benefits of the technology, as well as training Derby Homes staff on installation to keep project costs low. Ultimately, Vaillant were able to implement this pioneering project unobtrusively, with minimum disruption to heating and hot water supply, and without costing tenants any usable space.
The second entry, for District Heating Project of the Year, saw Vaillant working with Solihull social housing provider Bromford to replace the existing storage heaters of a 24-flat Victorian building. Having specified three 38kW geoTHERM ground source heat pumps to supply a centralised heat only system, the team was faced with the challenge of creating a plant room off-site.
In a ground-breaking move, Vaillant created the plant room in a shipping container, building an Energy Centre which would not only contain the three heat pumps, but two 1,000 litre buffer cylinders, a twin headed brine pump and custom controls. Requirements for insulation and access were matched to the specifications stipulated by the installation partner, and once complete, the container was simply delivered to site and connected. As a result, tenants now enjoy reduced energy bills and the comfort of using renewable technologies to heat their accommodation.
John Bailey, sales director for commercial and renewable systems at Vaillant, commented: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for not one, but two, H&V News Awards. We are always eager to work with installer and specification partners to design innovative systems that help them to upgrade their heating technologies, and it’s fantastic to see this work recognised.
“Both nominated projects involve social housing apartments, where renewable technologies can not only provide a green solution but, crucially, lower energy bills and consequently reduce the risk of tenants falling into fuel poverty. There are benefits for both landlords and tenants to installing renewable technologies and we are committed to continuing to find new ways of installing heat pumps that reduce bills and carbon outputs. We are proud to have these achievements shortlisted for the H&V News Awards and look forward to attending the ceremony on 25 April.”
