This scheme covering multiple sites was carried out for a property developer. Our Client is redeveloping 9 tower blocks in Salford. By way of producing another income stream, he invested in Solar PV.
We installed 8 x 2-4 kW solar PV on tower Blocks in Salford
This scheme required us to liaise with the Landlord and tenants for the installation of the Solar PV Technologies, accessing the dwellings, initially for survey purposes, secondly for the Electricians, then for the installation team to complete the works and ultimately for the Project Manager to Sign off.
We had to carry out a photography based pre-assessment of each of the sites. This was done with the tenant to authenticate the condition of the internal and external of each dwelling along with the resident’s signature to authenticate the report to be factually correct.
The process required a full induction with the landlord and each of the residents in the rented properties detailing what we required from them and to inform them of the measures that we would undertake as part of our working standards.
We also carry this out to ensure that we fully understand the resident’s circumstances, any issues that we should know about, emergency medical needs i.e. the power must not be switched off ventilators/dialysis machines, etc. Any pets that may become worried/aggressive with the activities and persons in and around the property.
We had to arrange for all equipment including panels mounting kit and ballast due to being a flat roof system to be talked to the roof via mast climber. After client liaison and with client consent we decided to work out of hours to move all equipment to the roof.
