Principle retains broadgate estates rowe portfolio

Principle Cleaning Services has retained the prestigious Broadgate Estates Rest of West End (ROWE) portfolio.

The London-based cleaning specialist, which provides its services to some of the most prominent buildings in the Capital, secured the multi-site contract renewal following a rigorous tender process.

The ROWE portfolio comprises of eight locations including York House, 10 Portman Square and the newly developed 7 Clarges Street in Piccadilly.

“The excellent levels of service and innovative use of technology were both significant factors in awarding the contract to Principle for another term,” said Terry King, client services director for Broadgate Estates.

Principle has worked with Broadgate Estates since 2010 providing cleaning and window cleaning services via its own in-house dedicated team.

Matt Kuwertz, sales and marketing director at Principle Cleaning Services, said: “To have secured this contract renewal against stiff competition is particularly rewarding. It is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our on-site teams and our investment in technology, which allows both companies to access real time data. Principle Cleaning Services is proud to work for Broadgate Estates and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership.”

One of Principle’s main aims is to be the most sustainable cleaning company to work for, providing the best working environment, conditions and access to progress for the firm’s 1700+ employees. 


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.


New real-time energy optimisation technology delivers savings beyond controllable load

A Sheffield-based energy solutions company has launched its real-time energy optimisation technology today.

VISTA offers ‘new ways of seeing’ for energy professionals. In fact, it takes energy savings and carbon reduction to a new level by adding an additional layer of intelligence to a building management system (BMS).  The result is a step-change improvement in energy visibility, optimised building control – and guaranteed energy savings, whilst improving comfort levels in the building.

World-leading expertise

Developed by BG Energy Solutions’ (BGES) carbon reduction specialists, VISTA is much more than a ‘box within a BMS’ or a data analytics tool.

Available in two versions - VISTA Pro and VISTA Lite - it integrates seamlessly into an existing BMS, HVAC plant, lighting control and other smart interfaces, in order to save energy by operating both intelligently and efficiently. This is achieved by taking on-board live weather forecasts, energy tariff data and building operation trends.

Building and energy management professionals can take advantage of its user-friendly front end and real-time information – thereby saving building operators time and helping to identify issues quickly.

Powered by EcoPilot®

VISTA Pro uses the power of world-renowned EcoPilot® technology to deliver a complete picture of energy use.

Using the thermal mass signature of a building, EcoPilot® improves a building’s comfort conditions, while automatically optimising energy usage from HVAC systems. What’s more, it achieves maximum estate-wide efficiency and balance by enabling various systems to work in harmony - rather than against - each other.

Because VISTA goes beyond controllable load, the result is significantly reduced energy bills. Alongside this, carbon reduction targets can be more easily achieved.

Impressive ROI & energy savings

Commenting on the launch, BGES Managing Director Gareth Barber said:

“This is a very exciting and significant launch for us. VISTA is the formal productisation of our already-successful and multi-award-winning energy optimisation solution. We have refined our offering even further and have placed end users firmly in mind during this process.

“The result is a powerful energy management tool. Energy savings are typically 20% and ROI is expected in under 2 years. We cannot wait to take VISTA to an even wider audience.”
