Whole-life project evaluation can save energy costs

Whole-life project evaluation can save energy costs

Let us reduce energy useage by moving from capex to whole-life costs.

These are the strongly held views of BES’s CEO, Zeb Ahmed and discussed in @BSEE.
With the digital tools available today and smart building design, evidence can be assimilated and evaluated to demonstrate long-term savings.

Analysing the data

The data should change our focus from capex costs to consideration of the whole- life asset costs.

Accepting sustainability driven processes, building services and architectural solutions can often be more expensive at capex and neither extended payback periods or 20-year energy savings appear on a 5-year plan.

Nevertheless, energy prices today are making us all stop and think about prioritising energy efficiency to reduce costs over an asset’s lifespan.

Retaining high standards

With a highly motivated market driven to save energy more so than ever before, it’s also widely recognised that carbon reduction must be delivered and can be without compromising high standards of quality assurance, compliance or safe working conditions.

Through creative and collaborative design and build processes that ensure a balance
between commercial and sustainable goals while evaluating costs throughout the asset’s lifecycle, all things are possible.

It’s an approach that requires rethinking; ensuring sustainability goals are embedded at every level. Yes, start with process design, but hopefully even before that from the very start at the R&D phase.
