The Important of Design & Construction 1

The Importance of Development & Construction

Our process is focused on understanding client needs and delivering customised solutions. We know that not every fleet operates in the same way. The carrying capacity, configuration, range requirements, and charging windows of vehicles vary from fleet to fleet and site to site. The existing electrical supplies, available local grid capacity, and existing distribution infrastructure also vary from site to site.

The Importance of Development and Construction

Therefore, it is critical that your charging solution is able to utilise the electrical supply available, to deliver the optimal loads to your vehicles, at the lowest possible cost to your business. Our team carries out careful evaluation of your existing infrastructure, how you operate your fleet today, what your plans are for the future, resulting in a bespoke solution that delivers performance.

Key Stages in the Process

Our Development and Delivery team provide tailor made solutions in accordance with the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) plan of work to ensure high standards on project completion.

Project Kick-Off

Project Kick Off

After initial project discussions with a Key Account Manager, customers are connected with our Development and Construction team to take the first step on their end-to-end electrification journey. During this process the team will run an introduction call to gain an initial understanding of the workings of the customer’s depots. This information will help tailor our delivery process outlined below ensuring the smooth electrification of your site.

Development Overview

During the Development phase, our goal is to understand various customer electrification needs by presenting a personalised scheme, offering consultations on available options. Our development team concentrates on constructing reliable solutions, allowing you to focus on your core operations without worries about your charging infrastructure. To kickstart your electrification journey, we implement a three-step process:
Site Surveys
Smart Fleet Consultation
