Madson awarded major office development,Madson Air Conditioning have been awarded the contract to design, supply and install the complete mechanical services systems to a major office development in Colchester known locally as “The Square”.The new office is the largest of its kind in Colchester for the last 15 years (Circa 30,000 sq.ft). We will be working with local contractors R G Carter (Colchester) Ltd to install new air conditioning, ventilation and water service systems.The building will carry a BREEAM rating of very good. The project starts in August 2007 for completion in December 2007.
It is a common miss-preconception that air conditioning revolves entirely around the provision of cooling.Modern day air conditioning systems are capable of providing the most energy efficient method of heating to buildings during the winter, as well as cooling in the summer. These systems are called “Heat-pumps”.
This is a fact recognized and backed by the government. Since the introduction of the climate change levy, where businesses are taxed on the amount of energy they use, a scheme has been introduced to reward businesses that invest in energy efficient technology.
An “Enhanced Capital Allowance” of 100% in the first year applies to all UK tax paying companies that utilize heat-pump units as a way of reducing energy usage, which lowers carbon emissions, helps save the environment and improves your business cash flow.
