Alan Unsworth of Hadrian explained, "We decided to use the VRF Heat Pump system due to the internal restrictions of a listed building. The ducted fan coils offered both performance in cooling duties and noise levels required, as well as being able to integrate with the Architects' vision of the internal aesthetics".
Alan continued "Saltwell Towers is a Grade II listed building therefore there were certain considerations to the building structure which had to be taken into account during the installation. SCALA, The Society of Chief Architects of Local Authorities named the restored Towers as its Civic Building of the Year. It has also been awarded the RICS North of England Heritage Building of the Year.
