District Heating Contractor
TO PROBLEM SOLVING
We navigate clients through the design, supply and installation of a district heating system, and our passion for excellence in the process is aligned with an uncompromising desire to advance better, greener practices. Uniquely to our industry, our team are multi-skilled experts, which gives us a full set of transferable resources to power performance whenever the requirement, whatever the size project, enhancing value to the client at every stage.
We understand the cost implications to testing throughout the process, so we’ve advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) to 100% phased array testing of welds, whilst our use of GoPro recordings to record our jointing is putting us in a league of our own, taking quality assurance in real time to another level. And as industry trailblazers, we are actively putting measures in place to deliver a more sustainable model of working by reducing our carbon footprint and meeting key Government tangibles. In some cases, we are proud to be called upon by our competitors in an advisory capacity to address their environmental targets and achievable goals.
