Dundee’s Princes Street Hub
Dundee’s Princes Street Hub 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’s EV vision and played our part in such a ground-breaking design and build.
Fraser Crichton – Corporate Fleet Operations Manager, Dundee City Council
"In Dundee we have one of the most developed EV infrastructures in Europe, this can only be achieved by having an excellent construction company involved, Boyd Brothers are that company"
"Building and installing innovative and complex EV projects like our Charging hubs which include solar and battery storage technologies requires a business that has highly skilled, resilient workforce."
