Capital projects

Over the course of the contract, we’ve worked with the council to deliver a number of energy efficiency and capital projects such as school lighting refurbishments, commercial boiler optimisation and replacement, and the installation of low loss transformers. This has enabled the council pursue their energy and carbon reduction targets that also include initiatives such as solar PV and combined heat and power (CHP).

This gives the Council confidence that their planned works have the support of a flexible, multi-skilled organisation that they can trust to deliver service excellence.
