Clear Climate energised by work on £100 million office development

A renewable energy firm is lending its support to a £100 million city centre development.

Clear Climate is supplying air conditioning systems to Newcastle’s Bank House office scheme.

The company, based in Peterlee, east Durham, will install 26 pieces of kit – consisting of 300 indoor units – throughout the building, which is due to be completed early next year.

The win adds to momentum at the business – founded by directors Andy Smith and Lee Peachey in 2017 – having recently surpassed a £5 million turnover target with months to spare.

Lee said: “This contract is huge for us.

“Our business was founded as an air conditioning company, and while in recent months the focus has been on the growth of the renewables sector and air source heat pump installations, this demonstrates our strength within this area.

“Bank House is the biggest commercial development project on the go in our region, so to be playing a part in it is fantastic and really highlights how far we’ve come as a business in a relatively short space of time.”

Clear Climate recently moved to a new base in Peterlee, which includes a training academy to nurture the next generation.

Andy added: “It’s an exciting time for the business, and we know if we’re to achieve our targets of becoming a £10 million turnover company, the growth of both arms is vital.”

Clear Climate works with a number of businesses and organisations, including Durham County Council, Bellway Homes, Tolent, Darlington Borough Council and Barker and Stonehouse.
