Why improve building performance?
Buildings are responsible for 40% of global energy consumption and 38% of green house gas emissions
A large part of which is lost through energy wastage
Energy Supply Costs
Over the past 12 months out of contract energy supply rates increased exponentially with the electricity kWh day rate increasing by +200% and gas kWh day rate by +390%.
Building operating costs have therefore increased significantly and will continue to grow at unprecedented rates, creating considerable margin pressures for UK businesses.
The Journey to Net Zero
Proposed changes to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards 2018 will require businesses to improve their building’s energy efficiency to an EPC rating ‘B’ by 2030.
There are several ways to make your building more energy efficient. Heat pumps, renewable generation and EV workplace charging will need to be a key consideration for building owners on their journey to net zero.
Top Five Energy Saving Tips
for commercial buildings
In commercial buildings, lighting consumes approx. 30% of total energy usage. Switching to LED’s can save you up to 80% p/yr.Read more
BEMS and HVAC control optimisation, using IOT technology and cloud-based AI solutions, can reduce your energy consumption by
Optimising a building’s incoming supply voltage to 220V-225V can save anything from 5-15% in electricity consumption p/yr.Read more
High Efficiency Motors
Modern electric motors are substantially more efficient than their older counterparts, with typical payback on capital outlay <12 months.Read more

Our solutions in action
A comprehensive building performance assessment of Welcome Finance’s 65,000 sq. ft HQ in Nottingham led to an improvement in the building’s EPC rating from ‘F’ to ‘D’, allowing the building to be subsequently sold at a greater value.
Asked to design a replacement lighting scheme for Elk Mill Retail Park in Oldham, we designed and installed a low energy LED solution with automated overnight dimming control, delivering energy reduction savings and reduced lifecycle maintenance costs.
A building performance assessment of Lateral House, a Grade A multi-tenanted office in Leeds City Centre, identified the opportunity to reduce the buildings electricity consumption through the installation of a voltage optimisation system.
