HBC Launches Renewable Division – 11/04/11


Henry Boot Construction has just announced the creation of a Renewable Division that will focus on new markets in the micro-generation renewable energy sector – initially working with ground and air source heat pumps, wind power and solar photovoltaic systems.

The division demonstrates HBC’s commitment to carbon reduction and minimising the company’s effect on climate change, and helps them to meet the current government mandate of a 34% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions nationally.

This commitment to sustainability and environmental impact reduction helps put the company at the forefront of the construction industry in its operational regions and will help make the most of emerging markets in the renewable energy field.

Gary Toomey has been appointed as the new Regional Manager and Nick Badcock joins the company as Technical Manager – both with a wealth of experience in the renewables sector both in the UK and abroad.

The Division will operate out of the company’s Dronfield head office.

“I’m pleased to announce that from the 11th April we shall be forming a new Renewable Division to strategically position ourselves for the anticipated growth in this area over future years.
“We are really enthused by this initiative, which will be a positive move to align our business to the needs of this sector.
“We believe there are great opportunities from the growth in this area which will alleviate the challenging conditions of the reduction in capital spend associated with reduced public expenditure on general construction.”
