Stiebel Eltron sponsors new building concept with Seismic

Stiebel Eltron has announced a partnership with Seismic, a new platform-based approach for construction. 

The heating manufacturer is one of the sponsors of a demonstrator building developed by the Seismic consortium, which comprises consultancy blacc, offsite manufacturers Elliott Group and the McAvoy, Tata Steel, the Manufacturing Technology Centre, the National Composite Centre, and Specific (part of Swansea University). The aim of the project was to provide a new standardised approach to buildings and help to drive a shift towards Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). 

Stiebel Eltron carried out an assessment of the building and calculated the heat loss based on the size of the rooms and conditions of the building. The expert team then provided a full specification advising on which of their products would be most suitable for the needs required. 

The process is a part of Stiebel Eltron’s solution provision, which they provide packaged solutions for home comforts to all customers and partners, throughout every stage of a project, including planning, installation, service, and support. 

Following this process, Stiebel Eltron provided CNS Trend NC (no control) heaters for the building, which have been designed for properties where the user is not the billpayer, giving landlords control of the temperature and timer controls. 

 The CNS Trend NC heaters will help to reduce energy wastage, improve bill management, and do not require separate local PIR or touch activated controls. However, users can use onboard controls to boost heat for a set limited period if the heater is currently at its setback temperature.  

With added features including a weekly timer, open window detection, self-learning capabilities and automatic circulation of the preheat timer, the CNS Trend NC is designed to reduce energy wastage in rental properties and comprises of five different models, spanning 0.5 to 2kW in heating output.  

The sponsorship marks another step in Wirral-based Stiebel Eltron’s commitment to improving the environmental credentials of rental properties. 

Mark Mcmanus, managing director of Stiebel Eltron UK, said: “The CNS Trend NC heater range is the perfect solution for the demonstrator building, and one of many energy efficient heating solutions we offer. 

“We provide packaged solutions for various scenarios and partners, with the team equipped to scope out the services needed for their project, from advice, planning, and installation. 

“If the UK is to meet its ambitious net zero targets, reducing energy wastage in rental properties is crucial and we are very proud to be a part of Seismic, in pushing for platform-based construction solutions.” 

Designed in line with the government’s Construction 2025 targets, Seismic excels in four key areas; sustainability, value, innovation, and people, delivering a building that is 75% faster to complete, 70% lower in carbon impact, and 47% better value than traditional construction.
