We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new collaboration between the Arnolfini, one of our most iconic clients, and the University of the West of England (UWE), our latest and hugely exciting partner.
Adding values to our customers
We care about property and our environment is one of our core values, and we continually look to see how we can offer efficiency ideas to our customers in order to reduce our collective impact on the world around us. After our introduction, we’re delighted to announce that the Arnolfini will be working with UWE to conduct energy audits through UWE’s Architecture and the Built Environment Department.
This audit will be conducted by students taking UWE’s Energy Management and Performance Evaluation module. The purpose of this module is to enable students to develop the acquired skills to manage technical evaluations of buildings and facilities, specially enabling them to undertake energy audits, complete energy analysis and write feasibility studies.
In order to do this, the Arnolfini will act as a case study for a non-domestic building for this module. The individuals on this course will use energy consumption data for both gas and electricity meters provided by the Arnolfini for the past 3 years, alongside information on water consumption for the past 5 years to assess an area of energy improvement.
Energy efficiency improvements
The students will look to see where improvements can be made, whether through an alternative energy generation, a technology aimed at improving energy efficiency or a technical process that claims to save energy. Each student will apply a range of management processes to establish the feasibility of the suggested improvements, including literature reviews, applying government incentives, tax and tariff optimisation, discount costing and performance data analysis to name a few.
The project is currently underway and we’re hugely excited to hear the outcome of the case study, and delighted that we could connect and support both the Arnolfini and UWE.
