Over the last 10 years Boyd Brothers have been recognised as one of the UK’s leading EV infrastructure companies. Our in-house team have extensive EV expertise having completed over 1,000 EV projects throughout the UK. All projects are managed from initial concept and design, through planning to full construction and ultimate client sign off.
We continue to build on our reputation by delivering a quality service coupled with the highest standards of workmanship. We believe it is important to differentiate our customers experience through effective communication and appreciate we are only ever as good as the last project we have completed for you.
Our aim in a challenging environment is to deliver your EV project on time and in budget while reducing your carbon emissions and providing the highest quality EV infrastructure. In a challenging economic climate, it is critical to provide best value while at the same time offer the capability to future proof your EV infrastructure design. This will help minimise your exposure and give consideration to future technology upgrades, potential charger increase and site expansion, while evaluating a return against initial investment v’s long term investment with future proof savings. Careful thought around your current and future requirements at the design stage can deliver significant long term cost savings to your EV projects.
Dundee’s Award winning and innovative Princes Street integrated Hub design broke the mold and became the first of its kind in the UK. An extremely ambitious EV infrastructure project, it offered the EV equivalent of todays fuel stations. Opened in July 2018 and described at a European EV forum as “A globally significant development in electric vehicle charging“ consisting of multiple EV chargers complemented with solar canopies and battery storage renewables. The site has also been future proofed to allow increased battery storage capacity and more powerful chargers.
It was hailed as a first of its kind in the UK to involve renewable energy optimisation taking EV infrastructures in the UK to the next level. So significant was its design, it has become the benchmark for many large EV infrastructure projects that followed. Boyd Brothers are very proud to have supported Dundee City Council EV vision and played our part in such a groundbreaking design and build.
From the Internationally recognised Award-winning Dundee Hub at Princes Street, to a single charger project in the Shetlands, Boyd Brothers have what it takes to make your EV visions become a reality.
As Dundee Council continued to grow its own electric vehicle infrastructure, it had to consider an all-inclusive EV infrastructure which encompassed outlying areas and involved a number of stakeholder partners including the University of Dundee, NHS Tayside, Dundee and Angus College and local taxi companies.
In 2018, East Lothian Council had only four functioning chargepoints, and it was often claimed that people would not invest in an electric vehicle (EV) until the infrastructure was there to support them. “Range-anxiety” (the perception that a driver might run out of fuel far from home) was a common fear among drivers who might be looking to switch.
