Type of works: supply of On Top and Integrated solar PV roof systems.
A recent roof renewal of their own Head Office presented Scottish roofing specialists; Forster with the perfect opportunity to install Redlands On Top and Integrated solar PV roof systems. By doing so on their own offices in Brechin, Scotland, Forster has gained MCS accreditation, which ensures that their customers are able to claim payments from the Feed in Tariff scheme. The installation has also helped Forster to reduce their carbon footprint and benefit from electricity savings.
Forster installed three Redland roof PV systems at their Head Office. Part of the property was re-roofed in Mini Stonewold Slate Grey tiles, incorporating nine Redland on-top PV panels and nine integrated Mini Stonewold PV tiles. Another area of the roof was fitted with Redland Grovebury tiles incorporating nine integrated Grovebury PV tiles.
Forster Managing Director, Steve Scott said: We decided on Redland for this project based on the confidence we drew from having successfully worked with them for many years, benefitting from their understanding of traditional roof design and their track record for producing quality roofing products.
Steve added: With the strong wind and rain we are all too familiar with here in Scotland, we recognised the importance of the fixings and installation process in ensuring the long term security and weather tightness of our roof. Both the integrated and on-top systems proved incredibly easy to install and the whole job was completed within a week.
Redland Sales Director Andy Dennis commented: We are delighted to see our integrated and on-top solar PV systems utilised by Forster. Having such an established and reputable contractor use our PV systems and tiles on their own premises demonstrates the confidence they have in our product design.
