Energy and Sustainability Services

Higher utility costs, energy price volatility and limits on the amount of carbon available to heat, cool and power our buildings provide a critical imperative for organisations to quantify and reduce their carbon footprint.

With considerable experience and expertise in the improvement of energy performance in buildings, BGIS knows the combination of factors that must be linked to ensure delivery of the best performance from building assets, fabric and a combined drive towards innovation, partnership and investment.

Saving energy saves you money

Our specialist expertise enables us to re-engineer the way you manage energy consumption. Following an audit, we can develop for you energy-driven solutions that can dramatically reduce energy consumption and directly translate into lower overheads and higher profits. In short, BGIS energy efficiency solutions will save you money. Energy saving is not something that we add on as an afterthought. We factor it in to every project – large or small – from an early stage, and we find that our advanced technology and software are invaluable in helping us to identify and quantify potential energy savings.

Bespoke solutions

Because every business is unique, our energy-trained engineers follow a bespoke approach to first ascertain your business and building needs, and then identify and reduce wastage. We use intelligent data to fully demonstrate the business case and financial savings that can be achieved by making energy-saving adjustments to your system, or by investing in new technology. The data can also help us to detect wear on components, allowing potential failures to be pre-empted and reducing the risk of system failure.

Healthy benefits

In many instances, regular routine servicing of plant and equipment, together with some staff training to ensure the adoption of good practices, are sufficient to generate valuable energy savings. In other cases, upgrading to new technologies can optimise performance and save energy to an extent that rapidly gives you an enticing ROI. It all adds up to a better bottom line, and a healthier environment.

Achieving sustainable performance is key to the way in which BGIS undertakes service delivery

By measuring performance we benchmark our success against both our clients expectations and industry best practice. This provides a useful mechanism to focus on any weaker areas of service and gives an active mechanism for year-on-year continuous improvement. Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:

  • To comply with, and exceed where practicable, all applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
  • To integrate sustainability considerations into all our business decisions.
  • To ensure that all staff are fully aware of our Sustainability Policy and are committed to implementing and improving it.
  • To minimise the impact on sustainability of all activities.
  • To make clients and suppliers aware of our Sustainability Policy, and encourage them to adopt sound sustainable management practices.
  • Integrate our sustainability goals throughout our operations
  • Improve resource efficiency, sustainable consumption, and production, throughout the whole supply chain from design through to operation
  • Encourage ideas and innovation, internally and with our supply chain, that can create financial savings and benefit our customers, society and environment
  • To review, annually report, and to continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.
