G&H Group Secures Funding to Help Schools and Council Buildings Move Closer to Net Zero

Leeds-based mechanical, electrical and public health service provider, G&H Group, will support 13 public sector buildings in Leeds, York, Middlesbrough and London, to move closer to Net Zero after securing £2.5m of funding from the government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, saving 8,000 tonnes of carbon*.

G&H Group’s projects division secured the funding by working both directly with multi-academy trusts and in collaboration with building surveyors and energy consultants. Work on the 13 projects will be delivered by G&H Group and includes installing ground source heat pumps (GSHPs), solar panels, window and roof fabric upgrades, air source heat pumps (ASHPs) and LEDs. All projects will be delivered by 31 March 2024. 

Marc Ambler, operations manager, G&H Projects said: “We have extensive experience assisting both clients and building surveyors and energy consultants in navigating the PSDS applications process, securing funding and reducing their carbon emissions. Our experienced on-site team will deliver all 13 projects across multi-academies and local authority buildings, with all work on completion saving an estimated 8000 tonnes of carbon, across the lifetime of the projects.”

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) launched the PSDS initiative in 2020, to provide grants for public sector bodies and fund decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures, to help meet the UK government’s Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions 2050 target. 

As well as securing £2.5m through the PSDS, G&H Group recently secured eight school projects worth £2m through the government’s Condition Improvement Fund. 

Established in 1998, G&H Group is a market leading mechanical, electrical, and public health (MEP) provider. Its 180-strong experienced team design, manage, deliver and maintain every aspect of MEP schemes.
