Worked with Unite Students, the leading provider of purpose built student accommodation in the UK, in undertaking energy and water efficiency audits across its northern estate. In addition, support was provided to ensure regulatory compliance with the Private Rented Sector (PRS) Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) in the UK.
The audits involved the development of individual energy and water efficiency plans for all properties in scope. Following which, a specialist tool “The Roy” was specified and externally commissioned in order to identify, quantify, cost up and plan out opportunities for reducing energy use and carbon emissions primarily through improvements to building fabric, services and the implementation of low carbon technology.
This work has subsequently been shortlisted for the following awards:
- The Energy Awards – Under the “Energy Data Collection and Analysis – Project Based” category.
- Education Estates Awards
- EMA Energy Management Awards
Unite Students are now achieving actual energy and water savings from the implementation of the Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) highlighted during the audits.
