Focus FM has been providing Environmental Consultancy services to 1 Finsbury Circus for over 5 years. This on-going relationship since the re-development of the site in 2008 has allowed us to develop an excellent understanding of the building, its occupiers and its evolving needs.

Our focus on both continuous and regular data and information analysis, communication and tenant engagement has helped us to identify effective energy saving opportunities such as targeting out of hours energy consumption, controls optimisation, more aggressive plant start-up and turn down strategies, LED lighting upgrades and the installation of presence detectors for lighting control. This approach has enabled us to monitor the effectiveness of the improvement strategies undertaken, promptly identify potential issues such as sensor failure and incorrect controls adjustments and track the performance of the site against industry standard benchmarks.

 

Overall this holistic approach to building sustainability has led to more than an 11% decrease in emissions over the last 12 month period while maintaining comfort conditions within this fully occupied building.
