Vear Construction - Westwood Road
Our case studies.
The requirement for this project was to deliver a full mechanical including all plumbing, heating ,testing and commissioning as well as 24hr aftercare to 15 apartments in Southampton. The mechanical services included under floor heating as well as Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery to each plot and a dry riser for each floor. We also installed a 15 kw PV system to the flat roof. This project was delivered to a very high standard and within the time scales set by Vear group.
All of our projects have a designated contract manager who ensures the build is managed using our bespoke quality management system, all of our projects comply with health and safety as well as the relevant industry regulations for Gas Safe, MCS and Building regs.
At the end of the project we supply a full handover to the project management as well as a bespoke O&M handover manual for each property.
Where we work.
We recently had a new office built for our company headquarters, the building was originally used as a farm barn but had been abandoned for many years, which you can see in the first photo. We decided to keep the barn as traditional as possible and we also made the decision to go off grid.
We made sure the building was insulated and re-built to a very high standard and used modern LED lights throughout. We installed underfloor heating and the end result was that we were one point of achieving an A rated EPC certificate.
The off grid system consists of 19 PV panels and a specialist designed off grid battery system, which you can see in the photos. We also made use of an original rainwater harvesting system which we believe was built over a 100 years ago. We will use this to keep the grass watered when the ground work is completed.
