Renewable energy in buildings and sustainability in architecture is now a must have.
Working with a local, proven, reliable subcontractor to design and install large scale solar panels and other energy efficient and renewable technologies is another.
IU Energy partners with the main contractor to provide renewable energy solutions in Construction.
Specifically, the projects we undertake are for new as well as retrofit developments.
IU Energy will –
- Work from Architect’s plans to integrate renewable energy in buildings
- Work directly with your Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor or Architect
- Consult on integrated energy solutions in new builds and retrofits
- Arrange utilities connection
- Design fit for purpose, integrated energy solutions
- Ensure compliance with plans and Local Authority and Planning conditions
- Accurately calculate your savings
- Accurately calculate ROI
- Provide an accurate quote for installation
New build example
As an illustration of sustainability in architecture on a new build project with large scale solar panels, a recent example is the Phase 2 expansion of Plymouth City Council’s Langage Business Park.
In this case, working under Ryearch and MEP Systems, IU Energy designed, installed and commissioned six Solar PV systems onto new build units. Equally important was the timing of the installations. In particular, we had to co-ordinate together with Ryearch and MEP’s schedule.
As can be seen with Plymouth Argyle’s new multi-million £ Grandstand, IU Energy installed 58.85kW of Solar PV panels. The centre section of the array spells out the locally famous initials, ‘PAFC’, a design suggestion made by IU Energy’s consulting team. The project is another great example of sustainability in architecture, built in at planning stage.
Overall, we collaborated with at least six involved parties –
- The main contractor’s Project Manager
- Sub-contracted electricians
- Crane hirers
- Supply chains (to co-ordinate deliveries)
