A collaborative project between Transport for London (TfL) and their supply chain, which includes Z-Tech, has won the 'Collaboration of the Year' award at the 2016 H&V News Awards: an industry-leading building services engineering awards ceremony.
Z-Tech has been working with TfL Cooling the Tube Project since 2013 on a number of projects exploring how underground Tube stations can be kept cool in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.
The award-winning project comprised of the design and trial of a new PAHU (Platform Air handling unit) for London Underground platforms, which used an innovative fan chiller system to pump cold air into the station and improve the experience and comfort of passengers.
Z-Tech was involved in the enhanced maintenance side & trialling different methods of cleaning on the PAHU prototypes.
Blair Lees (Z-Tech’s Rail Business Unit Manager), said:
“This is a fantastic achievement and I’m proud of the work that colleagues have accomplished over recent years; this is a fine example of how different companies can work together to accomplish an outstanding result”.
The H&V News Awards are an annual celebration of excellence, forward thinking and the highest achievements in the entire heating, ventilation, air conditioning and building services sectors.
