London School of Economics Energy Performance
London School of Economics (LSE) continuously strives to improve its environmental sustainability, and by working with Bouygues Energies & Services and implementing our solution, they have managed to achieve significant reductions with regards to their energy and CO2 consumption.
SAVINGS PER ANNUM
TONNS OF CO2 SAVED PER ANNUM
The principal aim of this partnership was to work with London School of Economics to achieve the 54% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2020, as outlined in their Carbon Management Plan (CMP). With this target in mind, LSE aspire to reach a reduction of 57% in order to achieve its short and long term goals.
Although significant carbon savings had been achieve, Bouygues Energies & Services partnered with LSE to support them in meeting their target, attaining maximum efficiency from the remaining portfolio and managing future revenue costs.
Bouygues Energies & Services carried out in depth energy surveys in order to develop a client proposal for the Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs), this allowed the client to select the best technical solutions from a range of measures. We then implemented these solutions with guaranteed savings through an innovative commercial model that the client could benefit from. The energy performance contract allows the client to hand pick their preferred technologies, that are often selected for their publicity around meeting the sustainability targets they have published through the relevant bodies.

BYES Move to an Agile Working Environment
Bouygues Energies & Services UK Head Office was previously a traditional office, set over two floors with large personal desks and dedicated directors' offices. The organisation was continuing to experience steady growth, but was unable to accommodate additional staff without a dramatic change to the office environment.
Return on investment
Savings per annum
The principal aim of this project was to create a new office environment that addressed the inefficient use of space and create more collaborative spaces, social and meeting areas, by significantly increasing the diversity of space to work. The redesign had to ensure that overall Head Office costs remained stable, whilst accommodating the company's growth for the next 10 years. It was also essential that the office supported our ISO 27001 accreditation and our ability to store classified documents.
Bouygues Energies & Services managed the complete transformation using our internal resources, from the business case, design, management of refurbishment, the change management and ongoing facilities management.
Interviews and presentations were carried out with staff, to develop an understanding of their needs and requirements in the new work environment. A desk utilisation study was conducted to assess how much desk space was being used. The results showed that even during peak working hours, the workstations were under utilised. We actively engaged with staff throughout the design process, using collaborative forums and 3D walkthroughs to foster participation and input.
The new design concept incorporated 15 workspace zones:
- The Home Zone - A quiet, focused area designed to allow groups to work with their departments
- The Project Area - Designed to encourage project work with no individual computer work
- The Pod - Designed for individuals requiring access to a quiet zone for a short period of time
- Flexible Meeting Area - Designed for meetings with up to five people and collaborative working
- The Booth - Designed for meetings with up to four people and collaborative working
- The Leadership Zone - For use by members of the board for collaborative working and meetings
- Touchdown Zone - Designed to allow 'pop-in' access for short periods of working
- Discussion Zone - For informal meetings
- Training/Meeting Zone - Designed for meetings or training with up to 24 people
- The Interview Room - Designed for interviews only
- The Secure Room - Designed for secured, cleared, authorised personnel only
- The Lounge - Informal meetings and collaboration
- Locker Zone - Designed to allow staff to keep their valuables safe during the working day
- Phone Booth - Designed to allow phone calls away from your working environment
- Printer Area
To manage the significant culture change, we implemented a series of smaller changes using the Kotter '8-steps for leading change' framework. The board were converted to new ways of working and lead by example, releasing their offices before the move. These were converted to meeting rooms using electronic booking.
The number of floors has been halved, decreasing square metres by 26%, increasing capacity by 66% and spaces to work by 31%.
Prior to the project, Bouygues Energies & Services conducted an initial Leesman survey, and scored the working environment in the bottom quarter of all buildings benchmarked. After the redesign, a second Leesman survey was conducted, scoring the working environment in the top 4%. Other results showed:
- A 75.6% improvement in productivity
- A 80.8% increase in the teams' 'sense of community'
- A 93.6% improvement in corporate image
- A 83.3% improvement in culture
London Borough of Lambeth Energy and Efficiency Project
Bouygues Energies & Services partnered with the London Borough of Lambeth to save energy and improve efficiency by replacing existing street lighting with LED lanterns.
4 month delivery
reduction in energy consumption
The fundamental aims of this project were to reduce energy costs for Lambeth Council, and to provide better illuminated streets. The partnership with Bouygues Energies & Services has also helped the council to become more sustainable by reducing carbon emissions.
We delivered an energy focused design solution, driving down costs and increasing the London Borough of Lambeth's overall efficiency
- The ambitious programme of works was carried out by our infrastructure division, replacing a total of 8500 of the HID lighting units with LED residential lanterns
- Replacement works began in June and were completed one month ahead of schedule in September
- Throughout the project, we ensured minimal disruption was caused to residents and road users
Our partnership with the London Borough of Lambeth resulted in serveral benefits:
- Local Authority started receiving paybacks almost immediately
due to instant savings from energy bills as a result of early completion
- Energy consumption was reduced
from over 905 Kw to 348.5 Kw, a 61% saving
- Colour rendering from the LED lanterns improved visual clarity
City of York LED Lantern Replacement
Bouygues Energies & Services completed an extensive lighting project in the historic City of York to help reduce energy and make significant cost savings.
savings in energy costs per year
A large number of LED lanterns were supplied and installed, replacing the old technology of SOX/SON lanterns. The fully managed, detailed programme required the works to be completed to specific timescales/deadlines in order to achieve the desired energy reductions.
The replacement lanterns raised the levels of lighting on existing highways to current standards under BS5489 2013 as well as offering the option of variable levels (power reduction post-midnight).
Our solution brought together strategic programming, smart logistics and a dedicated mobile workforce. Installation crews were managed by mobile supervisors in welfare/office vehicles.
We supplied the labour, plant and materials to provide a fully managed LED lantern conversion programme.
In addition to factory acceptance tests, we introduced a site acceptance test scheme to ensure that all lanterns were supplied and delivered safely to specification.
Demanding timescales were met and we delivered improved efficiency ahead of schedule
This was despite site difficulties such as narrow streets and traffic sensitive areas.
Throughout the programme Bouygues Energies & Services managed any issues on behalf of the council
This included complaints by residents or problems with intrusive light - we endeavoured to keep such disruption to a minimum.
The LED conversions will save the City of York Council £200,000 a year in energy
The project will also reduce maintenance costs and maintain a high quality of lighting for residents.
