Tony and Aras' Grand Design, Henley-on-Thames

Many will know Grand Designs as the longest and most highly acclaimed property show in the UK, hosted by Kevin McCloud, a former theatre designer with an eye for sustainable and minimalistic architecture. In every episode, you are guaranteed extravagant, unusual and often ambitious architectural projects.

If you’re a die-hard Grand Designs fan and fanatic about green homes, be sure to catch Tony and Aras Searby’s property from Henley-on-Thames. You will find SolarCentric making an appearance also, featuring our partnership with the eco-friendly couple to install an efficient-energy system for their state-of-the-art homebuilding project.

The foundations
Showcasing their grand design, Tony and Aras will take us through the progression of their self-build from start to finish, noting all the groundwork and creative elements within their budget. The site will exhibit all the sustainable materials involved, with our Solar PV system being one of them.

The panels that were installed will be displayed on their very flat and extremely spacious roof, the couple explained how SolarCentric shared the same vision and really took on board all the elements that were required:

Tony and Aras said: “The two things that have been faultless with SolarCentric was the cost and communication. SolarCentric have been helpful in both installing the system for us and negotiating some very good discounts with various suppliers for the solar panels and the Sonnen battery.”

An environmentally safe haven
The house is now completed to their green standard and they express how talking through everything with SolarCentric and getting a coordinated system together was crucial for their resourceful home.

Tony and Aras said: “The main product was the solar panels which are currently hidden on our flat roof. The design element worked really well, despite an angled roof being more sufficient to attract sunlight, we do have a lot of space on our roof, so it was important for us to have more panels than usual.”

Their response to the system was very positive, they mentioned how the system uses electricity effectively and gave us 10 out of 10 for our service and for taking their budget into much consideration.

“SolarCentric have been so easy to connect with throughout this entire process which has been very reassuring, and we absolutely feel that SolarCentric took on all the elements that were required for this project.”

It has been a pleasure working with the energy-efficient couple and we look forward to seeing their innovative and revolutionary design on the big screen soon.
