HBS New Energies selected as solar PV partner for Kier Living’s Urban Quarter
We are delighted to announce that Kier Living has selected HBS New Energies to design, supply and install integrated solar PV systems across new homes being constructed at their Urban Quarter regeneration development in Bristol.
This major new £50 million housing scheme which is being developed by Kier Living in partnership with Bristol City Council will provide 261 properties ranging from 1 and 2 bedroom apartments to 2, 3 & 4 bedroom houses to the south of the city. Of these homes, 30% are for affordable housing, while the remaining homes will be available for private sale.
The development of the 12.7 hectare site at Hengrove Park is the first phase of wider proposals to regenerate the Park, with more than 1600 new homes planned.
Michael Parkins, Managing Surveyor, Kier Living (Wales & West) commented:
“We found HBS New Energies to be extremely helpful throughout the tender process for Urban Quarter. Their design team provided a high-level of expertise to deliver a value engineered solution that ensured the scheme achieved its sustainability targets within budget.
Our decision was supported by HBS’s extensive solar PV experience in the house building sector and their recent success in completing PV installs to 371 new homes at Kingsmoor Park, a regeneration scheme delivered by Kier Living’s central office. We very much look forward to developing our relationship with HBS as we progress with this exciting new project.’’
Delivering sustainable new homes for Kier and Bristol City Council
To ensure the Urban Quarter scheme achieved the required 20% saving in CO2 emissions through on-site renewable generation, HBS’s design team value engineered a roof-integrated solar PV system to best suit a range of mixed house types and apartment blocks. This provided the most cost-effective solution for the client within their budget, whilst providing a visually aesthetic finish for each new home.
James Bull, Managing Director, HBS New Energies said:
“Being selected as Kier Living’s delivery partner to install solar PV to their latest large-scale development in Bristol is excellent news and testament to our strong reputation as one of the UK’s leading solar experts within the housing sector. We look forward to working with Kier on this scheme and support the construction of much needed sustainable new homes for the city of Bristol.’’
