Virtual reality tour adds value at 30 Euston Square

As one of London’s top event venues, 30 Euston Square has continued its investment in cutting edge technology with the creation of an immersive virtual reality tour featuring genuine event footage.

“Site visits are the most important part of the sales process, however there are times when a client cannot attend in person or certain parts of the venue are in use when they do so.  Our interactive and immersive virtual reality tour gives them a chance to experience all we have to offer from afar,” comments Stuart Gavin, Sales and Marketing Manager, 30 Euston Square.  “It allows potential clients to see the venue in action, walk amongst other guests and truly appreciate what 30 Euston Square actually feels like during different types of event.” 

The virtual reality tour takes 30 Euston Square’s ability to showcase its offering to the next level, going beyond the standard virtual tour.  Using the venue’s core messages as a story board, the video takes event professionals on a journey that includes meetings and conferences, as well as Summer and Christmas parties.

Stuart adds: “Throughout the virtual reality video we wanted to demonstrate how our Meetings Rooms, State Rooms and Rooftop Terrace, as well as our Auditorium and Exhibition Space can be used for varying event styles.  In today’s market good photography and a standard virtual tour is no longer enough. We knew we needed to provide event professionals with an experience both on and off site, enabling them to visualise an event at 30 Euston Square.”

The video has also been shot in a cinematic style, providing 30 Euston Square with a new hero video for their website as well as shorter clips and bloopers to use across their other digital channels.  

Stuart concludes: “We’re extremely pleased with how the two videos have worked out. We previewed the virtual reality video at SquareMeal Venue and Events Live 2017 and received very positive feedback so we’re excited to introduce this to the market. Clients’ best understand a venue by physically being there and we are delighted to be the first event venue in the Searcys collection to make the most of such new and exciting technology.”

30 Euston Square, home of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), is a conference, meetings and events venue in the heart of London. Conveniently situated next to a major transport hub, 30 Euston Square is an ideal venue for both domestic and international delegates travelling to London for business.

Veolia Delivers Major Carbon Savings To The University Of East Anglia

Global resource management group, Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia CHP UK Limited, is helping the University of East Anglia (UEA) to reduce carbon emissions through a new 10-year combined heat and power contract. This will provide low carbon electricity and heat to University of East Anglia and see two of the latest generation of Veolia combined heat and power (CHP) units installed to deliver secure energy supplies.  The 4MWe CHP installation will help the University reduce campus carbon emissions by 35% by 2020, against a 1990 baseline and support their ‘Sustainable Ways’ vision where the efficient use of resources and self-generated energy support low carbon goals.

Designed to produce around 30GWh of electricity a year and maximise heat efficiency, the CHP will cut annual carbon emissions by a further 4,000 tonnes. The system is based around two of the latest generation of Veolia 2MWe units which will deliver low carbon heat and electricity to the 320-acre campus through the district heating and cooling network and electrical infrastructure. This maintains the energy supply for the buildings that support the academic and research activities for over 18,800 students and staff.

This is the final part of a three-year project to update energy facilities at UEA. Along with new, more energy efficient boilers and pumps, Thermal Stores have been installed to capture excess heat from the CHPs and use it later in the day when needed. These tanks hold 200,000 litres of water, an efficient way to store the excess heat generated by the CHP engines.

The CHP installation phase of the project was completed in October 2017 and will be supported by a 10 year contract using Veolia’s CHP helpdesk to provide lifetime monitoring. Optimised maintenance will be provided by the company’s nationwide field service teams.

Commenting on the new contract, Gavin Graveson, Veolia’s Chief Operating Officer, Public and Commercial Veolia UK said “Our combined heat and power units are already supporting the sustainable goals of over 60 campuses in the UK and reducing their carbon emissions by over 40,000 tonnes each year. By deploying this new generation of units that include the latest industry innovations we will be able to help the campus to increase energy efficiency.”

Richard Bettle from UEA added, “These latest CHP engines replaced the original engines installed in 1999 and, along with a third existing CHP engine, will allow us to generate over 80% of electricity on site, reducing costs and CO2 emissions.”

Internationally renowned, the University of East Anglia is currently ranked in the top15 of all UK universities.  It is a leading member of Norwich Research Park, one of Europe's biggest concentrations of researchers in the fields of environmental, health, and plant sciences. UEA successfully achieved the international standard for environmental management systems, ISO14001, in May 2015. The remit of their EMS covers teaching, research and operational activities.

Veolia currently have around 30MWe of CHP capacity that provides energy on over 60 university campuses, supporting their education and research facilities, and housing more than 200,000 students.
