With offices in London, Bristol and Birmingham, Bevan Brittan is one of the UK’s leading law firms. In 2006, the company moved into new offices – a converted warehouse with conditioned office space. After analysing their energy use and identifying energy waste, we offered the facilities team some top level energy efficiency advice.
Bevan Brittan is one of the UK’s leading law firms, with offices in Bristol, London, and Birmingham. Following their 2006 relocation to a converted warehouse with conditioned office space, Bevan Brittan knew that they would need to pay attention to energy use across the site.
We were tasked with analysing their energy use, identifying energy waste, and providing energy efficiency advice to the Bevan Brittan facilities team. The project was funded entirely by the Carbon Trust.
Following the success of the initial energy survey, Bevan Brittan instructed Utilitywise to carry out annual energy health checks, including site surveys and a report to chart the success of the year. We were also asked to provide additional advice on how to further reduce energy consumption.
Utilitywise has now provided 5 annual reports, with successes clearly marked. Examples of recent initiatives to reduce carbon waste include the installation of further air quality sensors in the basement car park, allowing the air handling plant to boost its efficiency, and new sub-level floor lighting zone controllers. Energy intensive GU10/GU5 halogen spotlights are being replaced with the latest LED technology. Smart meters have been fitted energy supplies, allowing energy consumption to be analysed.
With an annual electricity spend of approximately £12,500, Irvine Library was considered a primary problem site by North Ayrshire Council. We identified potential savings of up to £6,000.Learn More
