We are extremely pleased with the service provided by Roofing Consultants Group and would definitely use them again in the future. We are especially pleased with the way in which they were able to work out of hours so no disruption was caused to our business.

Lovania Nurseries Ltd of Tarleton, near Preston is one of the UK’s leading large scale plant growers, wholesalers and contract growers, producing over 65 million bedding, alpine, flowering and bulb pot plants each year. They supply garden centres and retailers throughout the UK.

The Challenge
In 2011, Lovania decided to install a solar PV system but were thwarted by the traditional solar suppliers who were unable to install across sections of the packing house roof. This was due to an ageing and fragile cement fibre roof which was located directly over the packing machinery. There was considerable concern that operations would be disrupted by falling debris.
Early in 2012, Lovania approached Roofing Consultants Group while we were completing a solar installation close by, to enquire if we could find a solution to the problem.

The Solution
Roofing Consultants Group was able to provide the perfect solution, by working hand in hand with our specialist Solar and Roofing Divisions. The team evaluated the problem and identified the potential system size and financial returns for Lovania to provide a 50kW solar PV array. Roofing Consultants devised a roof replacement schedule, which would be performed out of hours, to provide a secure base for the solar system installation whilst ensuring no work disruption.
