A CONSTRUCTION group involved with major projects in Huddersfield has turned up the heat on its rivals.
Leeds-based GMI has refocused its renewable energy business to provide clients with a total energy management service.
GMI has delivered an extensive range of solar photovoltaic schemes for major clients including Tesco, Town Centre Securities PLC, JCT600 and Pavers Shoes.
Now its GMI Renewable Energy business has been renamed to trade as GMI Energy, providing a better representation of the wider scope of capabilities offered by the group.
Expanding on the experience of delivering projects such as the largest solar pv system for Tesco in the UK and the country’s largest city centre solar system – at the time of installation – at Clarence Dock in Leeds, the professional team at GMI have built a wealth of knowledge.
It has also built a network of partners to cover renewables and energy efficiency systems. These include low energy lighting, biomass boilers and smart metering solutions.
To drive the business forward, GMI has appointed Carl Nielsen as managing director of GMI Energy.
He has more than 27 year's experience working in the mechanical and electrical sector for NG Baileys and has a thorough understanding of different properties and their energy requirements.
Said Mr Nielsen: “It is an exciting time for GMI as the business continues to expand and grow into new areas that provide the perfect complement to the core construction business.
“As energy requirements and legislation for UK property is evolving in the coming years, we want to be the partner of choice for clients to provide them with a full turnkey solution for their energy management needs from a name they trust.”
Among its construction projects, the GMI group is building Kirklees College’s new engineering centre at St Andrew’s Road, Huddersfield.
It also developed a Travelodge and Costa Coffee outlet as part of the Spindlegate development at Leeds Road in the town.
