Energy reduction should be utilised in as many areas as possible.

Construction produces and consumes huge amounts of energy and resources during its course throughout the project. This is mostly accredited to construction works, the development process and transport.

However, like every other building, site facilities and accommodation also produces its share of energy consumption and therefore can be reduced as well.

The example below shows how one site achieved this:

  • The site is being used as a case study by the contractor for reducing energy consumption of site accommodation;
  • All site cabins and facilities are delivered by suppliers with default settings for lighting and heating;
  • The audit highlighted the fact that heating temperatures and times along with lighting times could be altered and reduced resulting in significant cost and energy savings if the settings are made site specific.
