Meeting your project’s renewable energy requirements


The main legislative requirement surrounding renewable energy in the construction sector is PART L of the Building Regulations. This demands that all new build developments must generate a minimum of 10% of electricity demand on-site from renewable technology. Local authorities can also specify the inclusion of renewables such as solar PV as part of a new build project’s planning conditions.

Through our full service capabilities we will help to ensure your project fulfils all energy performance and CO2 targets, complies with local planning policies that specify the inclusion of renewable energy, and meets requirements for Building Regulations.

BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction, and operation. If your project is targeting a BREEAM certification, then integrating solar PV is vitally important and will increase your BREEAM score in many of the energy categories.

Efficient project management from start to finish


We will assign a project team who will manage every stage of the solar PV installation for your construction project. From site assessment to design and planning, installation, and commissioning right through to O&M. We can provide tender quotations and identify opportunities that will assist in achieving cost reductions to ensure project viability.

Our design and technical team will work with your architects and energy assessor to specify and design a solar PV system that will fulfil your project requirements and ensure maximum value. Your dedicated project manager will liaise with your site team throughout the construction and co-ordinate our install team, who will carry out all roofing, electrical work, installation and commissioning.

We have comprehensive knowledge of construction sites and the associated RAMS, CDM and Method Statement requirements. Our in-house H&S manager oversees all policies and procedures and focuses on maintaining health and safety across all projects we deliver.
