Client Background

Teesside University is based in Middlesbrough and draws students from all over the UK and abroad. The university is known for its progressive approach and inspiring innovaion. In 2015 it opened The Curve, a new building designed for modern teaching and learning.

The Challenge

Teesside University's sustainability policy required installing energy saving products to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. There was limited roof space so intelligent design was needed.

What UCS Renewables Did

Working on behalf of local firm Castle Building Services, we installed 177 x 250w solar panels to generate clean, renewable energy. The panels were placed in an east-west configuration using a Renusol FS10 East/West mounting system to make use of the limited space available and ensure maximum exposure to the sun.

The result is that the solar panels generate green electricity 365 days a year, providing a renewable energy source and allowing Teesside University to meet its sustainability targets.

Pulman Skoda Durham

UCS installed 80 solar panels onto the showroom’s roof. Working with Kingspan, we designed the layout of solar panels so that the array didn’t affect the integrity of the roof. We used drawings supplied by Kingspan and their standing seam brackets in the installation. The result was a roof of commercial solar panels carefully designed and installed to generate solar power for the showroom. The installation looks great and the building runs on solar energy, meaning low running costs for Pulman Skoda’s flagship showroom.
