Following two successful awards schemes celebrating the best in heating and cooling, Panasonic has announced that the third edition of the Panasonic PRO Awards is now open for entries.
The PRO Awards celebrate excellence in the design, specification, installation and commissioning of Panasonic heating and cooling solutions. With four categories to chose from, architects, consultants, distributors, engineers and installers are invited to submit stand-out projects from across Europe. Winners will have the opportunity to join an inspirational trip to Japan to visit Panasonic Headquarters and the sustainable town of Fujisawa.
Past winners have also enjoyed media exposure and industry recognition for their work. Heat Merchants, based in Ireland, won in last year’s scheme for a sustainable design that expertly utilised the Aquarea heat pump to provide heating and hot water for a new marina-based housing estate. Shane Duffy from Heat Merchants comments: “Following our PRO Awards win we’ve had some great successes in the media, with several pieces of coverage to promote both our award-winning project and brand.The internal pride that follows an award win is very positive and we’re proud to have our work recognised at an international level.
