Greengage were appointed to act as ESOS Advisors to McLaren Construction Group PLC. McLaren is one of the UK’s most successful privately owned construction and investment property businesses, with over 480 employees and a turnover of £377.7 million last year (2013/14). The firm are experienced in a variety of key market sectors including commercial offices, mixed use, retail, student accommodation, distribution, hotels and leisure.
In order to identify where the firm could reduce energy, Greengage first reviewed the collated energy data for buildings, industrial processes (i.e. construction sites) and transport (i.e. vehicle journeys to work by McLaren employees). This information was used in the developing of an ESOS Scoping Report that presented the extent of energy use across the portfolio.
The next stage of the ESOS work involves carrying out ESOS Audits on Group transport activities and five construction sites. This will involve identifying practical ways to improve the energy efficiency and recommend cost effective energy saving opportunities related to transport and construction site activities.
The recommendations will ensure that McLaren Construction will not only comply with the mandatory ESOS requirements but also reduce their energy costs for future years.
