Eco UK Group Consolidates M&E Offering
Following a recent rebrand, United Kingdom energy solutions provider Eco UK Group has streamlined the mechanical and electrical (M&E) offering of its Ecolighting, Ecolectrical, Ecomech and Eco M&E businesses.
For several years, the company has been incorporating in-house lighting, electrical and mechanical works into hundreds of projects across the country and is now expanding its services in line with customer demands and the UK’s net zero target.
More popular service offerings include the installation of EV charging sites that are now in high demand as the number of electrical vehicles rises across the UK. EVs accounted for 164,000 pure-electric cars and over 373,600 plug-in cars in 2020 compared to just 3,500 in 2003.
One of the group’s recent projects which showcases its combined services offering is Team AB’s new E-commerce fulfillment centre at PortOne, Blakenham, where it provided comprehensive M&E and energy efficient lighting solutions to its new 143,000ft2 built-to-suit solution for the E-commerce and online sector. Holding up to 31,000 pallets of goods across its 31 aisles, the centre was constructed to meet the demands that have come from continued growth in online sales, something that has only accelerated in the current climate. 578 luminaires and an emergency lighting system were fitted across the facility’s fulfilment centre and in office accommodation, with in-house teams also worked externally at the site and installed 25 street lights and flood lights.
Alongside the lighting division, the EcoMech and Ecolec teams were specified to fulfill the site’s HVAC requirements, which included fitting air conditioning units, toilet extract systems, electric panel heaters and above ground drainage. Ecolectrical engineers were also required to install a new mains panel board and 10 distribution boards to operate the door access control, intruder alarm and communications cabinets. Outside, five EV charging systems were added to the site’s car park.
The new E-commerce fulfilment centre is the first of a number of sites planned for Team AB.
Steve Gardner, Eco UK Group managing director, explains: “The combined services offering that Eco UK Group provides is a key strength to our brand and makes us stand out from our competitors. By having teams that cover any number of tasks, we are able to cater to a multitude of customers and provide a streamlined and all encompassing service. We are pleased to offer these services to our customers and meet the needs of our ever expanding client base.”
