245.69 kWp Solar PV system installed multiple homes in Trumpington Meadow.

Ecolution first tendered for the Trumpington Meadow projects in 2012, at the third phase stage. This flagship development for design and build contractors is still ongoing with the tendering process for phase 8 taking place soon.

To date Ecolution have provided in-roof Solar Photovoltaic systems across 5 phases of Trumpington Meadows over the past 3 years working with contractors Linkwood Services and Bedford Pilgrims Housing Association.

Consideration for the environment has been integral to the creation of this development. With road layouts and dedicated pathways, to encourage residents to not drive and cycle instead, as well as ensuring the buildings themselves were environmentally friendly which is why they all have Solar Photovoltaic systems.

These award winning collection of 3, 4 and 5 bedrooms houses and flats set within the 148 acre scenic country park of Cambridge, have won multiple awards across the developments. From the NHBC ‘Pride in Job’ award two years running, ‘best large development’ and have also been the UK’s first to win the prestigious ‘Built for Life’ development award. The ‘Built for Life’ award commemorates the developments for being well designed, attractive and an environmentally better place to live.

Since our first installations on the Trumpington Meadows projects, we have continued to win every phase since due to our high quality standards in service delivered. We are hoping to win the contract from phase 8 starting later this year.
