Bouygues Energies & Services receives RoSPA Gold Medal Award for health and safety achievements
Bouygues Energies & Services are thrilled to be celebrating landing an internationally-recognised award for the 7th consecutive year for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Bouygues Energies & Services has received a RoSPA Gold Medal Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff, clients and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Bouygues Energies & Services (Bouygues E&S), a global leader in street lighting and energy services, has completed a partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Borough to replace 90% of the street lighting in the borough with LED lights, delivering a significant reduction in carbon emissions and cost savings for taxpayers.
Axis shield are experts in development of novel proprietary diagnostic tests in areas of clinical need and their incorporation onto the menus of the high throughput analysers of their partners, using a variety of assay technologies. To support their continued development and reduce their energy usage Axis Shield required an upgrade of their existing 20-year-old chillers and AHU’s units to more efficient systems used for heating and cooling temperatures needed in the labs, offices and canteen areas.
Annual Energy Saving
Bouygues Energies & Services were appointed as the preferred installer on this project, they specified a system that would give Axis Shield an incredible saving of 101,850kWh approximately £11,203.46.
The Bouygues Energies & Services team provided a full turnkey solution that included initial investigation, energy survey, design and installation. The whole programme was planned to the dot to ensure minimum downtime and disruption to their operation.
To ensure the site was completed in the given timeframe and shutdown period, the site team started dismantling unnecessary parts from the existing system, giving them more time to install the new upgraded direct drive with fan array, filters and provide a general clean-up of the framework.
In the process, the engineering team on site replaced the pumps, fans, chillers and re-pipped where necessary. Completing the site to the highest standard meeting British standards and CIBSE guidelines.
Energy saving and subsequent cost savings
Benefit from a massive financial saving long term on using the HVAC system and cleaner air
The new system allows the client a peace of mind knowing it has been fully serviced and is working to it’s optimum level

Lauren Giller and Emily Baynes are Graduate Engineers working on the BYES Emergency Diesel Generator turnkey contract for Hinkley Point C. Here, Emily interviews Lauren about her role and experiences for Women in Engineering Day (23rd of June).
We have been Engineering modern, Safe and Compliant Controlled Environments for over 50 years.
Here's a quick overview of some projects we have had the pleasure to deliver for our clients, each project unique in it's own way delivered to the highest standards:
King's College London
King's College London (KCL) and Bouygues Energies & Services have a longstanding relationship, dating back to 1999. We have a 25-year contract to provide Total Facilities Management for two of the University’s largest research buildings; New Hunts House and Franklin Wilkins Building.
The two buildings provide office spaces, lecture theatres, libraries and research laboratories for students from all over the world, with up to 4000 people entering the Franklin Wilkins Building alone every day.
KCL was our first higher education venture in the UK market and as it is such a prestigious university, is a great source of pride for our team.
Annual Carbon Emissions Reduction
Annual Energy Savings
At KCL, we provide soft FM services such as cleaning, portering, waste, post room and security, and hard services such as M&E maintenance, building fabric maintenance and lifecycle management.
We have various lifecycle projects in operation across both buildings, such as:
- An electrical project to replace the distribution panels and boards across both buildings, which were initially installed in 1999. The aim of the project is to provide fully compliant panels and boards.
- The refurbishment of 38 sets of toilets across the Franklin Wilkins Building, including the installation of 130 Propelair toilets which aim to significantly reduce the amount of water used for toilet flushing. Aaztec Recycloo toilet cubicles have been introduced, which are manufactured from recycled plastic.
- A £3m chiller replacement project in both buildings in 2017.
- The installation of GVS Bacticell high efficiency and low energy filters in all the Air Handling Units. This provided energy savings of 23.4% (a payback of 3 months), improved air quality by 10% and increased capacity by 23%.
- Largescale LED lighting replacements have taken place in both buildings.
As a result of these projects and energy saving initiatives, we have seen annual energy savings of just under 3,000,000 kWh per annum and a carbon emissions reduction of just under 1,200 tonnes of CO2e a year.
A Client-Centric Approach
Bouygues participate in the King’s led ‘Fit for King’s’ programme where staff aim to deliver ‘a world-class service for a world-class University.’ As a result ,the university now has an engaged, high performing FM team with a truly customer-focused approach.
We have a “one team approach” with the client, which has been demonstrated through the joined approach in ensuring COVID secure buildings and our continual support in their sustainability goals, for example by introducing a plant register with run times to assist with energy savings.
We keep building-users informed with what is happening on-site through project boards and building-user group meetings.
We have introduced weekly staff surgeries, where the Management Team are available to answer staff queries.
Throughout the pandemic, both buildings have remained open and operational. We have installed sanitiser points, wipe pods and signage as well as pick-up and drop-off of COVID tests across the KCL Estate.

We are delighted to have donated 30 mattresses to St Mungo’s Homeless Assessment Centre in Westminster.
These mattresses were left surplus from a client contract at the end of last year. On hearing they were going to be otherwise disposed of, Mark Farrington, one of our Contract Directors reached out to see if the mattresses could be rehomed.
