A Hall new world as firm steps out
A HULL construction firm has expanded and created a dedicated renewables division.
With the launch of the new department, Hall Construction Group will focus on developing its existing work in renewables, which ranges from heat pump and biomass projects to construction of infrastructure for onshore wind farms.
It will also explore opportunities arising from the Government's Green Deal and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which are designed to help householders and businesses increase the energy efficiency of their properties across the UK and recoup installation costs.
A team has been carefully selected with extensive expertise and practical experience in this exciting new sector to run the new division.

Renewables manager Steve Ward, who has specialised in renewables for the past nine years, said: "Part of our role is to raise awareness of the group's existing renewables capabilities.
"The creation of this department strengthens the group by incorporating people who have the experience that is needed in the different areas of renewables activity."
The company, which has a 125-year trading history, is currently undertaking the installation of air-source heat pumps for 50 homes owned by East Riding Council and is positioned to enhance this turnover with Green Deal and other, low carbon-based initiatives.
The team's sales manager, Richard Weeks, who will also be joined by assistant renewables manager Dean Hordon, said that about a third of houses in the East Riding area do not have gas.
He said: "The options of oil, solid fuel, LPG and conventional electric heating are all expensive and have a large carbon footprint.
"As a solution, we offer air and ground source heat pumps, biomass, solar thermal, dynamic energy panels and a range of building fabric improvements.
"To complement the construction knowledge we have qualified energy assessors and can advise on full energy saving solutions, including funding, which will guarantee the client saves money from the outset."
Mr Weeks said the business is also involved in a large Passivhaus scheme (a building standard that greatly reduces demand on energy needs within homes) which, according to the firm, represents the ultimate in low energy construction.
Mr Weeks said: "Because energy is becoming more expensive, Government funding such as the RHI is attractive and all sorts of people are realising the benefits of renewables."
Previous renewables projects completed by the Hall Group include the £4.3m zero-carbon Moorgate Crofts Business Centre in Rotherham and the construction of sub-stations and roadways for onshore wind farms in East Yorkshire and Cumbria.
