History of our York office

With a strong focus on customer care and over 20 years’ experience of installing low carbon and renewable technologies, Chris and John created a work ethos that makes sure every customer gets the time and attention they need to incorporate the most suitable low carbon and renewable technology into their buildings. 

Acquired by Efficient Building Solutions in December 2020 and rebranded Green Building Renewables in 2021, the multi award-winning team continues to serve York with excellent service and a wide range of low carbon and renewable technologies.
