Hear what they have to say about working with us...

The team was always looking to improve and add value to the project, there was a very positive approach across the team, I have a lot of praise and admiration for all at Vital and as a result of their work we have a better scheme.

Angus Kennedy, Adams Consulting - University of St Andrews

Vital’s work with us and the district energy network that they delivered on our behalf continues to deliver considerable benefits to the University. As we continue our journey to net zero emissions at the University and our collaborative efforts for heat decarbonisation at city and region scale, we continue to be impressed by Vital’s presence and expertise in the UK market.

Roddy Yarr, Assistant Director (Sustainability and Environmental Management)
The University of Strathclyde

Vital are very good at bringing added value to projects, their knowledge and expertise is consistent. They kept to programme 100%, can’t fault Vital, they managed the changeovers well and put all the resources needed into the project. At one point, they had four different teams in different zones and shutdown was seamless. Lead in times were always accurate, it was a very focused delivery.

Robert Fisher, Building Services Coordinator - University of Liverpool
University of Liverpool - CHP

It was a tried and tested solution and district heating was what the client wanted. It was beneficial to have Vital as they have the expert knowledge and experience to bring to the scheme. Vital's experience became clear very quickly and we could take comfort in the fact that they have successfully completed schemes such as this before. This market is core to Vital so their knowledge added to the scheme.

Vital brought innovation to the Leeds PIPES project and added value from a project management perspective. Vital really engaged at the tender stage and thought strategically about how they could improve the scheme. Vital have produced some very good material for the website and the launch, and have been fundamental to the stakeholder engagement – they work hard and set the right tone.

George Munson, Senior Project Manager for Sustainable Energy and Air Quality
Leeds City Council - Leeds PIPES Network

Vital are keen to work with us as a team, they have a good flexible and proactive approach. Vital also manage our civils teams which works great, they have developed good working relationships and work together well. They are competent, professional and structured and we have a good working relationship.

Mark Bradbury, Infrastructure Delivery Manager, Nottingham City Council
Nottingham District Heating Scheme

The Vital team had good industry and energy centre knowledge to bring to the Camden Lock project, they knew what they were talking about and had a very good level of communications, good reporting and good point of contact in the relevant teams.

Jacques De Lange, Senior M&E Manager, Mace

Berkeley Homes has been working with Vital Energi at the Royal Arsenal Riverside for the past five years. During this time they have become an integral part of the delivery team providing a comprehensive service for the design, supply, installation and maintenance of the Energy Centre and district heating network serving the site.

David Bannon, Technical Director, Berkeley Homes

If the project hadn’t been awarded to Vital, it would have been near impossible to deliver. As an organisation, Vital need to be applauded for continuing to show their commitment to the project. Now Vital have the contract they have the authority and we are pleased with the progress they are making. We are very pleased to have a partner in Vital who are taking this forward with us.

Jim McAloon , Strategic Lead – Regeneration - West Dunbartonshire Council
Queens Quay Heat Network (Design)

We are getting healthy financial returns which are good, if not better than envisaged. We are in discussions with Vital regarding the roadmap to decarbonisation, it's a three way discussion between us, CEF and Vital

Don Mackenzie, Energy Manager, York Teaching Hospital
York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Vital won the project as they thought differently to others and came up with solutions others didn’t. Vital understood the Trusts requirements and provided significant contributions to realising our aspirations. Vital were the only company to consider keeping the steam network and retaining its reliability and that was what delivered the project successfully.

Brian Golding, Energy Manager – York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Vital had a good knowledge of the project and understanding of client's objectives. I have a lot of confidence in the design and quality of the work.

Andy Heaysman, Energy & Utilities Manager, Gloucestershire NHS Trust
Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

What exceeded our expectations was the seamless delivery of the district heating network they had cabling and buried mains, crossing roads, near an emergency helipad, on a live site and we never had one complaint. Vitals’ stakeholder engagement went very well, they communicated with a range of technical and non-technical staff at all levels as well as other external stakeholders, site neighbours etc. and their seamless approach is now being adopted by others.”

Graham Mutch, Head of Maintenance and Technical Services - NHS Grampian
NHS Tayside

The scheme has gone exceptionally well. The project not only satisfies a significant element of the estate’s and facilities directorate’s long-term CIP plans, but also satisfies our commitment to reduce the trust’s carbon emissions and meet our sustainability targets.

This project has been a great success for Dundee City Council. The Energy Performance Contract was a new way of working for the Council which has allowed us to make a step change in the scale and speed of installing energy saving measures in our estate.

Andy Marnie, Energy Officer - Dundee City Council

We continually look forwards to ensure what we do has a minimal environmental impact which is why those considerations have been at the heart of these improvements from the outset. We are also fortunate to have benefited from the expertise and advice of Vital Energi who have considerable experience in delivering these types of large scale energy projects.

We are very proud that working with Metropolitan and Vital Energi we have been able to deliver this important piece of infrastructure and that it is continuing to play an essential role in the high environmental performance of all of the buildings at King’s Cross.

Clare Hebbes, Senior Project Director at Argent
King's Cross

Vital deserve a lot of credit for working to a tight schedule. The network flew in at the end and it was a slick operation. One of the biggest successes was the traffic management. Areas were well controlled and managed and the site compound was well kept. This was highlighted by how little negative feedback there was from the public. It was a very challenging programme of work, but Vital Energi reacted quickly and effectively to any on site challenges and maintained a positive attitude throughout

The University design team, Vital Energi and their subcontractors have worked well together and have, through the application of good communications, teamwork and a steadfast commitment to making the project a success now reached the important project milestone of topping out the building.

The system being installed is one of the best low carbon solutions we’ve found over the years and we can make significant savings, in terms of thousands of tonnes of carbon per year. Vital Energi continued to meet the tight deadlines while causing as little disruption to the University and Edinburgh and its stakeholders
