Procast have secured a major contract to re-roof a number of council homes, install photo-voltaic panels and fit loft insulation.
The £32million programme of works for North Lanarkshire Council commenced in May and will run for approximately three years under a measured-term contract.
This is Procast Building Contractors’ first project involving the installation of PV for the council and it will involve the expertise and assistance of our Energy Services division, who will focus on the solar cell work.
All the works are being carried out in a “live” environment in the Pather area of Wishaw, with customers requiring safe access not just to their houses while the project is under way but also to their gardens.
This means that careful planning of the programme will be paramount, along with good communications and an emphasis on safety.
The project – which will involved the use of high-end Viridon in-roof 300-watt mono cells – is similar to the installations currently being carried out by Procast for Renfrewshire Council.
A company spokesman said: “This project will be rewarding, because the area is one of the first in the North Lanarkshire area to be completed to this specification by Procast.
“It’s a good opportunity for two divisions of Procast Group to work together and to utilise each other’s expertise to complete the works to such a high specification.
“All systems will be fully monitored online to measure performance, allowing quick response times and minimal engineer visits, which will mean to less difficulty for our customers.
“Plus, the end result will look good – giving the residents even more reason to be proud of their new-look homes.”< back
