New Opportunities for Solar in Construction
A solar PV system will help you meet all the minimum renewable energy requirements across the construction sector including PART L (of the building regulations) and the London Plan, in addition to improving your BREEAM score.
The majority of solar panels installations in the UK are retro-fits, however, the construction sector has the advantage of integrating renewable technology into the planning phase, which gives Your Eco a fresh opportunity to demonstrate our market-leading design and innovative approach to project development.
We have a unique track record with some of the most bankable construction companies in the UK sector, ensuring that our experience will deliver high-quality work for your construction projects with seamless building integration at the fore.

Construction Solar Case Studies
In addition to the 402 PV panels fitted to the roof of the fitness suite, the new Winchester Leisure & Sport centre boasts thermally efficient solar control glazing to the façades, water efficient fixtures and fittings, and extensive rainwater leisure facilities, making it one of the greenest leisure parks in the UK.
Providing renewable energy to the centre, the energy produced and stored by the PVs in one hour will supply enough energy to power the pool hall lights for 21.5hrs, the pool water heating and the electrical generation, all of which will see the project achieve an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating
Honda Formula 1 Factory,
Completed at the Honda Formula One factory, a brand and facility synonymous with high performance and engineering, Your Eco were able to seamlessly deliver a full turnkey solution to the highest standards and to an on-time and cost budget. This installation formed part of a series of works undertaken from full technical design with industry-leading software through to installation, testing and commissioning, and subsequent certification and O&M.
Using top of the line Trina 265Wp mono-crystalline modules, a 12.5 kW Fronius inverters and a Sunfixings mounting systems, this installation represents the best of what this technology can provide for our clients and with the highest levels of quality, from product specification through to design and delivery.
Teals are Somerset's newest food market, offering an array of exciting food options, from freshly baked bread through to handmade picnics in the orchard. With a vision to be a truly sustainable food market, Your Eco helped Teals Orchard create a building that would tread carefully on its environment.
We installed a bespoke and highly innovative 30 kW in-roof system, set within and framed by corrugated metal sheets to provide a rustic look that blends into its surrounding. Using Solar Edge technologies, this system will meet the baseload of the large food market and provide heating, cooling and lights to a number of visitors along with it's EV charge stations, making Teals Orchard the first e-charging only stop on the A303.
Whapping Wharf is a new-build neighbourhood in the cultural heart of Bristol, boasting places for people to live, shop, eat and relax with a view of the city's waterfront. Working for Balfour Beatty, Your Eco was tasked with installing 2 x 5.88 kW systems across the apartment complex. The PV systems will provide a zero carbon energy solution to the new homes, showcasing Your Eco's contribution to driving energy sustainability in the residential market. Using top of the line Trina PV modules and Solis inverters, we delivered the project to high standards and to budget under tight cost control.
