Press Room: Vortice supplies energy efficient ventilation to former convent

Vortice supplies energy efficient ventilation to former convent

Luxury apartments created within a former convent building are using energy efficient ventilation units from Vortice.

Converted convent

Altogether, 16 homes have been developed on the site of the Poor Clares Convent, in the attractive village of Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire and the site is now being landscaped. The convent itself, which closed as an active convent in 2011 after 160 years, has been converted and six new dwellings built on the site.

Vortice has installed the energy efficient Vort Leto into the apartments. The Vort Leto MEV is a continuously running ventilation unit which continually extracts from the wet rooms. The fan runs on a constant trickle and then boosts up via switches located in the wet rooms.

Vortice Specification Manager Ken Johnson said: “I worked closely with SANDS Plumbing and Heating Services London to ensure that the ventilation specified was suited to the type of building. Due to having only one break out of the building façade, the Vort Leto was an ideal choice in order to maintain the finish of the fabric of the building. It was important to both SANDS Plumbing and Heating Services and to Vortice to maintain the historic aspects of the building.”
