An independent company, with more than 30 years’ experience, DRV has worked on many major developments with national construction companies including Hill Partnerships, Countryside Properties, Willmot Dixon and McCarthy & Stone, as well as working alongside independent builders, homeowners and housing associations.
DRV offers a professional yet personalised service, tailored to the scope of any project, however large or small. Its systems are all designed to meet Building Regulations Part F, SAP and sustainability coding, NHBC Guide for Ventilation and Passivhaus Compliance.
DRV offers a full project management service, ensuring you have everything you need; from comprehensive information and design advice through to installation and maintenance.
As a Company, DRV works independently from the manufacturers, designing systems to ensure they meet client’s requirements as well building regulations and NHBC compliance.
On Passivhaus developments, DRV has designed, supplied and installed many ventilation systems to passivhaus compliance and are aware that the construction process of Passivhaus differs greatly to that of a “normal build” with the importance of the correct ventilation design, the correct system and especially the correct installation.
Founded in 2002 by David and Helen Roberts, D.R Ventilation combines David’s background in ventilation with Helen’s expertise in the construction and estate management markets.
During the company’s first six years, DRV worked for the leading ventilation manufacturers carrying out installations on their behalf. In 2008 DRV expanded to incorporate an offering for design, supply, installation and commissioning of all leading ventilation brands, after DRV recognised a gap in the market for an independent company offering this service.
Expanding the business further in 2014, and wishing to offer a ‘supply only’ service, D.R Ventilation Supplies was launched, aimed at trade and businesses wanting to fit their own systems. Today, DRV is recognised as one of the leading installers in the UK, working across the UK, to include client design ideas alongside their expertise to ensure the most efficient ventilation systems are installed on each occasion.
