Site power, tool charging and security delivered for McLaren.

 

Clean Technology

Our systems run purely on solar and methanol power, save 8.4 tonnes of CO2  per unit and are 99% recyclable. 

Rapid Deployment 

Our systems are deployed and operational in under 45 minutes.

Resilient 

Our robust system operates all year round in the harshest conditions.

Modular

The Solar Power Station can be built to meet your power operational requirements. 

Highly Secure

We integrate innovative surveillance and detection technologies, to keep your site secure. 

McLaren commissioned Sunstone to explore the viability for utilising renewables in construction across their flagship projects at Wembley Park in London. The ambition was straightforward, how could solar technologies help improve and mitigate the impacts of construction on the local environment at the site. In addition, by adopting these new technologies, we needed to demonstrate that these systems would perform as well, if not better, than traditional approaches. 

We worked in partnership with McLaren to carefully design, test and manufacture technologies that would meet these goals, helping them to improve operations and communications on-site while reducing both airborne and noise pollution. 

The first objective was to help secure this prestigious site and ensure plant and equipment were protected using perimeter surveillance and security. We utilised an Autonomous Remote Communications System to power a cordon of IP bullet cameras across their perimeter. 

Secondly, as the site was evolving and the operational requirement changed, McLaren required mobile surveillance that could be moved easily across the site, as and when required. We deployed two Solar IP CCTV Systems to provide mobile surveillance. 

Due to a lack of mains power, site workers needed a system to both recharge and secure their hand tools. For this, we invented and launched the Solar Power Station with surveillance, telecommunications, lockers with charge points and refuge for site workers. 

Based on a shipping container, the SPS provides site workers with recharging points and lockers for their tools, and refuge for site managers. In addition, the SPS provides a 3kWh solar array, battery bank and telescoping CCTV and Telecommunications mast.


All three technologies were installed in 2020 at their flagship site and they have been an unparalleled success. This is the first time all three technologies have been deployed on a single site anywhere in the world, saving over 1 tonne of CO2 and removing all security diesel generators from this site.

The built environment accounts for almost 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint. As an innovative and forward thinking company in the construction sector, we are engaging with our supply chain and other internal stakeholders early on in the construction process to address environmental impact by adopting sustainable building methods. To do this, we commissioned Sunstone to design and deliver a range of solar powered technologies to help drive down our CO2 footprint, provide security, tool charging and accommodation for site officers. These technologies will be pivotal in the future of construction in reducing CO2 and improving our operations on site. William Sloan, McLaren Construction
