To mark the significance of the largest installation anywhere in the world of Rehau’s Awadukt Thermo ground-to-air heat-exchange system to provide a renewable source of controlled cooling and ventilation, the company has created an award for the school where it is installed. The first winner of the award at the recently opened Queen Elizabeth’s School in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, was Jack Bedford, the current head boy and environmental champion .

Graham Hughes, Rehau’s business-unit director, said, ‘We’re incredibly proud of our involvement with Queen Elizabeth’s School, which, as a demonstration project for sustainable schools, showcases the very best in sustainable design and renewable-energy technologies.

‘We’ve watched the building take shape since our record-breaking 3500 m polypropylene pipework grid was installed beneath the building back in 2009. Now that the school is officially open, we’re delighted to be able to return to encourage and reward the school’s ongoing commitment to the environment.’
