Following the recent Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation Kimpton Building Services have introduced a number of energy saving initiatives at their head office in Bromborough.
As the business continues its success despite the current economic conditions and the financial pressures of the construction market, Kimpton have sought to strengthen their ‘Green’ credentials.
In July 2012 an area of 65m2 of roof space was fitted with 10kWpk of Solar PV Panels which have an estimated payback of 7 years. This was followed up with the installation of PIR control of the lighting in communal areas such as corridors, kitchen areas and WC’s.
With a number of areas internal to the building and without direct natural light, Sun Tubes have been installed in some of these areas so as to reduce the level of artificial light required.
Richard Kimpton, Managing Director said “As we have been advising our clients for many years on being energy efficient, it was time to put into practice what we preach. There were two key drivers to implementing these initiatives, firstly to reduce our actual energy consumption and secondly our investment in Solar PV was a major step into reducing our energy costs. Energy prices can only increase in the future and like all businesses, in order to ensure we remain competitive, we have to address the issue of constantly increasing utility costs.”
Kimpton’s are able to offer independent advice on energy reduction measures and review your buildings energy profile and optimise your energy efficiency.

The Plaza is a showpiece building for Bruntwood in Liverpool and we have since made it our own headquarters in the city. To reflect this, we needed to ensure that the fit out was of the highest quality, whilst maintaining the high levels of service our tenants expect from Bruntwood.
