Reduce your buildings operational costs while cutting its carbon footprint and securing a long term return by investing in solar.

By retrospectively installing roof-top solar on your existing buildings or incorporating it into your new-build specification you can turn your properties roof space into an asset – which, whilst providing a cheaper, greener supply of electricity for building occupiers, will also deliver an attractive, secure 20 year return on investment.

We design, supply, install and commission a range of in-roof, flat roof mounted and free standing solar photovoltaic systems in conjunction with our roofing services and as retrospective installations. Carrying out roofing and solar works at the same time enables you to avoid duplication of procurement and infrastructure costs; trades can be coordinated centrally, saving you time and money.

We set the standard for roofing and solar, through our exceptional safety, service and innovation record.

Combining our extensive Principal Contractor experience with our award winning slating, tiling and roof-integrated solar service we successfully deliver public building roof renewal and external renovation projects for a number of local authorities and other public bodies throughout Scotland. We have an exemplary track record of managing projects on time and within budget, particularly on sensitive, occupied public and commercial buildings, including numerous schools and a busy shopping arcade.

In addition we have successfully delivered roof conservation and integrated solar projects on a number of historically significant public buildings.

With a vision of ‘Excellence’ at the forefront, it is no surprise that we are dedicated to raising standards in everything we do, especially in the services we deliver. Safety, health, customer service, quality and skills and training are but a few of the key commitment areas which Forster is recognised for.

We take a proactive and progressive approach to providing community benefits. We have adopted a number of initiatives in the past, depending on the location and duration of the particular contract. Our approach was recognised in 2010 by Angus Council which named us Ambassadors for Business in acknowledgment of our successful, long standing partnerships with local schools and further education providers. We also received the (Scottish) National Federation Roofing Contractors, Services to the Community award in 2008.
