Case Study

GI Group

GI UK Group

  • Solar thermal
  • Domestic

The Client

GI (UK) Group has a construction division, which predominantly operates in the South West of the UK but is expanding this service into other areas of the UK. The company specialises in New Build Houses and small to medium, steel frame commercial and industrial units.

Guardian Industrial (UK) Limited is an LABC Registered Builder and all of the properties they construct, both domestic and commercial, come with a 10 Year Structural Warranty.

The Challenge

Guardian Industrial Ltd, were carrying out a new build of a domestic dwelling in Callington, Cornwall. As part of the construction, a Solar Thermal system was specified. In order for this system to be installed in accordance to MCS, IU Energy were approached to carry out a site survey to carry out the installation and commissioning of the system.

Our proposal was for the installation and commissioning of a Solar Thermal system onto the roof of the new building. A site survey was carried out by IU Energy in order to produce the proposal.

The Solution

IU Energy installed and commissioned a Solar Thermal system comprising of the following –

  • 2 x 2.5m2 flat plate collectors
  • On-roof tile fixing kit
  • Resol Flowsol B HE pump station with SLL controller

The system was connected to a pre-installed Joule 300l twin solar cylinder. The full installation took just one day and commissioning was carried out at a separate date once the cylinder was fully installed and operational.

For RHI purposes, the installation did not require metering, but was installed so that a heat meter could be installed retrospectively if required.

The Results

The entire system was delivered on-time for GI UK Group, within budget and without drama.
