PRATER Enhances Siemens Energy Offering

Prater has recently secured a contract with blue chip organisation, Siemens, for its 30m landmark Urban Sustainability Centre in Newham. The building will showcase new technology from around the world and new ways of living and working in a more sustainable way.

Responsible for the complete design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning, Prater has specified a roofing package with photovoltaic (PV) panels which will enable the centre to achieve a BREEAM Outstanding rating.

Stuart Whiting, Prater Solar Manager said: "The demand for greener, more sustainable construction solutions are ever on the increase, so to have the opportunity to work on this project is a move in the right direction for Prater and the construction industry as a whole.

"Our detailed project planning, which is being implemented ahead of the build due to the complex roof design, will demonstrate Prater's ability to deliver visually stunning and large-scale PV systems."

Prater will install 1375m2 of PV panels on the triangular shaped Kalzip standing-seam roofs, with custom architectural in-fill panels to provide 'clean edges' to the arrays. In addition 200m2 of PV modules will be fixed to the composite metal panel roofs over the roof lights.

The PV panels are expected to generate approximately 245MWh every year and deliver an estimated CO2 saving of 145,000kg per annum.

The planned cable car link between the O2 Arena and the Excel Exhibition Centre will pass just a few meters above the roof of the Urban Sustainability Centre meaning that this will be one of the most visible installations in the UK.

The centre will act as an exhibition centre for use by the public during the London 2012 Olympic Games and is expected to attract around 100,000 visitors every year.
