Site Office ‘Kill’ Switch

St James’ Smithfield Square site installed a ‘kill’ switch that controlled the electricity supply to 7 of 8 upper level cabins in their site office (leaving one cabin on to ensure essential circuits were kept energised e.g. emergency lights, fridges, network servers etc.).

This meant that at the end of each working day, the last person in the office could turn off any electrical equipment that may have been left on, by pushing a single button located by the exit.

This was found to significantly reduce office electricity consumption/ carbon emissions and had an estimated payback period of 2 years.
