In exposed sites where windfarms and other renewable plants are often located, buildings can be finished with a variety of exterior claddings, from wood to brick, to help them blend into the natural environment and comply with planning regulations.

Types of solutions:

  • Substations
  • Protection relay rooms
  • Permit rooms
  • Control rooms
