Winner of our #EighthPlinth competition

Our Mini Product Gallery was very popular at Ecobuild this year. Seven products were selected following an open nomination process, each product was presented with an impartial description on why they were chosen.

We also took inspiration from the Fourth Plinth Project in Trafalgar Square and allocated an eighth space in our mini gallery for an 'unknown' product. We were flooded with nominations for our #EighthPlinth project over the three days at Ecobuild.

On the last day our winner was announced. Congratulations to Ventive!! Ventive Ltd have designed a form of ventilation, powered solely by the natural buoyancy of warm air, which prevents heat loss. It channels the warm, rising air into existing chimney voids, where a Ventive chimney-cowl heat exchanger extracts the heat from the escaping air and transfers it to fresh air which enters the house through fireplace openings or vents.

The seven other products on display were:

Nanofloor Insulation by Nanopore Insulation; QbissAir by Trimo UK; FEenergysave by Daylight & Ventilation Solutions; TeploTie Insulating Wall Ties by Ancon Building Products; Kebonization by Kebony; reAqua+ by Waterevolution; and Hi-Therm Lintel by Keystone Lintels.

Thank you to all who nominated and those who took interest in our mini exhibition!
