There was plenty of free rooftop space at this London based manufacturer’s site. Enough space to fit 330 panels or 90kWp. Our engineer carried out a free feasibility survey, wind and load calculations and a risk assessment / method statement and construction programme. The works were completed and certified in under 2 weeks with minimal disruption to the operation of the company. Our team worked over the weekend to carry out the final connection.
