Green Agenda

EHGE’s clients increasingly seek to ensure that their real estate development and maintenance is sustainable; with a concomitant concern about the environmental impact of their business as a whole. Accordingly, they actively seek to decrease their energy consumption, waste generation and carbon footprint (amongst other metrics) of their operations

We recognise that sustainable development encompasses a broad tapestry of complex factors including social, economic, environmental, ethical and technical and are happy to assist clients with options analysis and the development of tailored solutions to meet their own requirements

We are developing an increasing expertise in this area and are augmenting our engineering skills, training our staff and increasing our domain knowledge to meet the challenges we face as a society

26005958_s Solar Panel Refraction22013787_s Wind FarmHeat recovery, solar PV, LED lighting and ‘smart’ control systems are some of the ways in which services installations can support ‘Green Agenda’ initiatives. Moreover, harvesting opportunities for energy saving need not wait for refurbishment projects to be started; real savings may be available as part of medium and long-cycle maintenance programmes

Recent examples of our positive contribution to client aspirations in reducing energy consumption include:

  • A re-lamping programme for the head office premises of a financial services client that realised a 28% energy reduction, whilst extending the life of the luminaires and hence the frequency (and cost) of medium cycle maintenance
  • A design proposal to replace the lighting installation for a mission critical industrial facility operating 365/24/7 that, when implemented, will yield a 50% reduction in energy consumption and save some 56 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. Should the client also choose to deploy ‘smart’ controls; these gains will increase further
