As part of the new build Linc-Cymru wanted to ensure that the energy solution was as forward thinking as the rest of the scheme. We were tasked with providing the most effective and sustainable solution possible. At the same time it still needed to be practical and capable of being delivered within the framework of a normal build contract.
