Passivent strengthens its technical expertise with senior appointment

Passivent, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of natural ventilation solutions, has appointed Huw Poppy to the role of business operations manager.

Huw joins Passivent with over 25 years’ experience, including specific expertise in the design and development of natural ventilation systems, filtration and evaporative air cooling systems, and will become a valuable contact for specifiers working across a wide range of sectors and project types. A key part of Huw’s role will be supporting Passivent’s in-house estimating team to provide architects, consultants, engineers and contractors with the technical calculations and advice they need to create compliant and cost-effective natural and hybrid ventilation strategies.

Throughout his career, Huw has gained a detailed understanding of the ventilation requirements for commercial, industrial and residential buildings and will work closely with Passivent’s technical and sales team to build on the company’s successful work across the education sector and other markets. Huw’s expertise also includes the development of control strategies to ensure that the chosen ventilation systems operate at their maximum efficiency to help reduce both costs and operational carbon.

Commenting on his new role as Passivent’s business operations manager, Huw said: “I am passionate about designing well ventilated and healthy spaces and I’m excited to be able to combine my own technical knowledge with Passivent’s innovative range of natural and hybrid ventilation systems to help even more of our specification customers achieve this goal.”

“Close and early collaboration is essential to designing effective ventilation strategies and I’m looking forward to working with clients at every stage of a project, from concept to construction.”
