Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to provide specialist electrical services at a new low-carbon residential development in Peckham, South East London.

Southward Council has approved plans to transform a former garage site in Rye Hill Park into 23 high-quality homes for social rent. The 23 new homes are located within two interlinked blocks, which are designed to provide high levels of fabric efficiency through enhanced thermal insulation levels and air tightness, beyond the requirements of building regulations. This will reduce the building’s overall energy demand and in conjunction with energy efficient heating and fittings, will provide residents with warmer homes and lower energy bills.

Roof-mounted photo-electric solar panels will generate ‘green’ electricity to provide direct power to the blocks to meet Southwark Council’s requirement for a 40% overall reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. This will reduce the need to draw electricity from the grid, further reducing the overall running costs of the new blocks.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will deliver a brand-new lightning protection system to protect the new development and its residents in the event of an electrical storm. The Group is very pleased to contribute to such a scheme that will assist in making carbon zero a reality.
