To align to Government carbon reduction targets, Uttlesford asked Artelia to identify areas of their estate where they could achieve the biggest improvements. We prepared a business case outlining where space, water, utilities and carbon could be saved alongside an implementation plan. This prioritised where and when capital finance should be spent to maximise return on investment. We met with building users to integrate their ideas into the project. The Council is now using space more effectively, reducing their maintenance costs and demonstrating new competencies in their facilities management staff to sustain operations.
