Ecosphere Renewables, 2014 PRO Award winner of Best Social Housing Project.

“We were invited to enter the Panasonic Pro Awards to showcase a large heat pump project that we had recently completed.  We were absolutely delighted to win an award, as was the client that we had worked on the project with. It is a great way to show to our clients that we go the extra mile. We use the award logo on all of our company literature and website which has raised our profile within the industry.  The cherry on the cake was an incredible, all expenses paid winners trip to Japan, where we visited the Panasonic Centre in Tokyo, the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town and experienced the amazing food in Japan. It was a once in a lifetime trip.” 

FWP Air Conditioning, 2014 PRO Award Winner of Sustainable Project of the Year

“FWP were proud to have recently won the Panasonic Sustainable Project of the Year Award for the design and installation of the air to water heat pump system in Carluccio’s, Meadowhall. We were able to offer lower energy consumption and therefore a significant carbon footprint reduction and cost savings due to our design. A benefit of being involved in the awards process has been the recognition of our work on the project, in particular our efforts around sustainability across our designs and installations.  It was particularly pleasing for this project to be recognised at the awards as it has allowed us to update our literature that is directed towards potential clients.”

Shane Duffy, Commercial Heating Manager, Heat Merchants, 2014 PRO Award Winner of Best Multi-Dwelling Project

‘Winning the Panasonic Pro award for the Mulberry Properties development – Straffan Manor, highlighted the quality of the houses, the innovation in the heating system and the various technologies which can be cleverly combined to achieve an A2 Building Energy Rating. The prize included a trip to Japan with an inspirational visit to the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town. This gave us a glimpse into a possible future where cutting edge technology allows us to live sustainably’
