British Land and Broadgate Estates wins CIBSE Award

14 February 2013

British Land and its property management subsidiary Broadgate Estates are celebrating after winning the Client Energy Management category at the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Awards

The CIBSE Awards bring together leading property managers, architects, designers, developers and engineers, all of whom vie for critical acclaim from the CIBSE. The Awards showcase the exemplar products, people and projects leading the way in innovation and engineering excellence.

The Client Energy Management Award was awarded to British Land for effective management of energy use across its portfolio. Judges were looking for clear evidence of actual energy performance and the scale of the initiative in relation to the organisation.

Broadgate Estates is responsible for the operation and performance of some British Land’s most prestigious buildings and mixed-use developments, such as the City of London’s premier office estate Broadgate, Regent’s Place in London’s West End and Ropemaker Place in the City, and leads on core services such as environment management.

The CIBSE judges said that the quality of entries this year had been “outstanding” and of the British Land entry added: “British Land have continued to show how they are driving a continuous and strategic improvement in the energy and carbon performance of their retail and office portfolio.”

The CIBSE judges continued: “They have set themselves increasingly tough targets year on year, which they have consistently achieved.”

Steve Whyman, Managing Director, Broadgate Estates, said: “Broadgate Estates is delighted to have supported British Land in achieving this award. It is recognition not just for our vast reductions in landlord-influenced energy use but also reflects the capital investment made into sustainability initiatives over the last few years.”

British Land has cut landlord-influenced energy use by 27% in 2012 compared to a 2009 baseline (improving on a 15% reduction in 2011). This significantly exceeded the 20% three-year reduction target. Energy reductions have saved occupiers £3.3m on their energy bills and cut carbon emissions by 24,500 tonnes over the last three years.
