With 650,000m2 of floor space, the university understood that there were huge savings to be made from cutting energy use, so it started a carbon-reduction programme in 2011. This has been an unprecedented success. Over the past six years, it has saved an estimated 5,536 tonnes of carbon (tCO2) and £1.3m in annual energy costs – a feat that was recognised last month, when the university’s estates services team was crowned Facilities Management Team of the Year, and overall champion, at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
