Net Zero Buildings Ltd (NZB) has secured a new contract to deliver a £1.6m net zero in operation building at Hart School, while reporting a 300% increase in its pipeline during Q1 2022.

The business was acquired by Premier Modular Ltd in summer 2021. After a period of consolidation it has relaunched with a new management team, ambitious growth strategy and new brand identity that better reflects its ethos.

Divisional director Dan Allison is working alongside managing director David Harris and the wider team to drive forward its ambitious new growth strategy as it targets projects within the healthcare, education, commercial and retail sectors.

Dan Allison, divisional director at Net Zero Buildings, said: “We are extremely encouraged by the business’ performance as we approach our financial year end - we have a strong, strategically focused pipeline in place which reflects our focus on both zero carbon in operation buildings alongside our panel manufacturing division.

"Net Zero Buildings benefits from a huge amount of expertise in delivering highly energy efficient buildings - particularly in achieving zero carbon in operation - and we look forward to supporting our customers to design and deliver buildings that are functional, efficient and fit for the future.”

David Harris, managing director of Premier Modular Group, including Net Zero Buildings and Premier Modular, said: “NetZero Buildings has undergone a complete transformation since the acquisition last year, which has refocused its priorities to ensure that it is in the best possible shape. An experienced management team is in place to deliver an ambitious growth strategy, underpinned by a new brand identity that better reflects the business and our objectives. The drive for net zero will continue to accelerate and the capabilities and insight within the business puts it in an enviable position from which to expand its market share.”

He continued: “Sustainability has been a major factor in the design and delivery of new buildings for many years, but, with net zero targets creeping closer, innovation is accelerating rapidly. It’s vital that new projects coming forward really ‘push the envelope’ to achieve net zero carbon in operation in order to meet current and future expectations; particularly where ESG is a factor.”
