H&R AWARDS 2015 – Training Initiative app of the year

portfolio-featured-thermaA web app and website built by kc web design kent in 2013 has won it’s second award (It previously won HPM App of The Year 2014). The ThermaSolutions web app, designed and built here at kc web design, has come second in the HEATING & RENEWABLES AWARDS 2015 – Training Initiative app of the year category for its built in ‘education centre’ app that allows teaching organisations to set tests for heating and boiler engineers. Teachers can set the criteria and the app will give calculations and answers for testing. The idea of the ‘education centre’ was to envelop real life scenarios into a classroom environment involving and engaging students of all ages via a PC or overhead projector. Students can decide what rooms they get tested on (each with varying degrees of difficulty) from a floor plan of a real house. From there they are given the background information needed to carry out the test. They can then hold open discussions about their results, and from there the system prompts the class to run the same calculations through the on board heat loss app ‘ThermaCalc’. Here they will see how quick and easy the same calculations can be done as well as seeing additional features such AquaCalc for hot water sizing and SolarCalc for designing entire solar thermal systems. Our two phased approach to testing a class reinforces the ‘long hand’ approach to radiator and boiler sizing, as well as familiarising classrooms with the use of mobile tool technology prior to their involvement in the workplace. Integrating productivity apps such as these into a classroom environment enhances the reputation of the industry at a grassroots level. Our apps are still the first and only that not only work the exact calculations contained in the ‘Domestic Heating Design Guide’ but can be used on any mobile device including PC’s.

The Training Initiative app of the year was a tough category this year and we beat the likes of Worcester Bosch and Baxi Potterton Boilers who are industry leaders with long histories in the industry.

The awards black tie dinner is on the 10th September.
