For over 30 years, the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham, Surrey, has been providing Specialist Palliative Care to adults facing the end of their life and to those who love and care for them.
Serving a population of 600,000 across West Surrey and North East Hampshire, the Hospice offers a much-valued package of care that reflects both clinical requirement and patient choice.
As an independent charity, the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice relies heavily on the support and generosity of the local community. Guildford based air conditioning and heat pump specialists, Space Air gladly offered assistance when approached regarding a need for improved environmental conditions in the Hospice’s main Therapy Suite and Conference Rooms.
Space Air selected and supplied a range of top quality, high efficiency, Daikin Heat Pump and heat recovery ventilation equipment, designed to ensure that optimum year round comfort conditions could be maintained, regardless of occupancy levels.
In addition to agreeing a specially discounted price for the equipment supplied, Space Air, on behalf of the Hospice, recruited support from local air conditioning installation contractors – Green Tech Environmental, who generously offered to carry out all the work at a greatly reduced rate.
The project was completed in April and Paul Batten, Facilities Manager for the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, pictured here (right) with Garry Stratford of Green Tech Environmental, said, “We are very pleased with the new Daikin air conditioning systems and were impressed by the efficiency in which they were selected and installed. The Hospice needs to raise over £10,000 every day to maintain and develop its full range of patient and family services, so working with local companies on the procurement and installation of quality equipment at significantly reduced costs is a perfect example of how corporate support can really make a difference”.
Speaking on behalf of Space Air and Green Tech Environmental, Mike Nankivell, Marketing Director of Space Air commented, “We were delighted to be able to come to the aid of the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in this way. It was clear that they urgently needed to address their environmental problems but with limited budgets might have been forced to consider a cheaper, less reliable and less energy efficient solution. Working together we have been able to provide top of the range Daikin systems that maximise both operating and energy efficiency at a fraction of the normal cost for this high standard of equipment.”
