NG Bailey teams up with Land Securities in energy-savings success

NG Bailey, Land Securities

A 12-month energy-reduction scheme for Land Securities, delivered by NG Bailey, has achieved a 9% fall in energy use at a number of the property company’s key London sites — including 5-6 New Street Square (pictured). The jointly funded cost-neutral pilot scheme exceeded the energy-saving target set by Land Securities.

The significant reduction in energy consumption has led to Land Securities expanding the scheme from five to 15 sites in London that are maintained by NG Bailey.

By collating and analysis data from the sites in the pilot phase, more than 40 projects were identified and completed to improve system efficiency, increase building performance and reduce energy usage.

Chris Coath, head of energy for NG Bailey led the projects and comments, ‘The initial sites were Land Securities’ highest users of energy in the capital, so to reduce energy consumption by 9% has a significant environmental and commercial impact. Detailed data analysis was the starting point, allowing us to focus on asset optimisation, asset upgrade, behavioural change and an immediate implementation of measures to deliver the energy savings.’

Caroline Hill, head of sustainability at Land Securities, said, ‘Our partnership with NG bailey has clearly demonstrated the scale of the opportunity to reduce energy use and offer value to our customers through reduced energy bills. Having exceeded the initial target we set, we look forward to extending our partnership with NG Bailey — taking this sector-leading model to a further 10 sites in London.’
