Client recognition for Leisure Connection

Published:  10 March, 2009

Leisure Connection
Its role in helping to reduce carbon emissions won the client of the year award for Leisure Connection.

There is nothing like a responsive client to help low-carbon consultants and low-carbon energy assessors achieve their objects — and Leisure Connection was awarded client of the year in recognition of its efforts led by head of property services Paul Bailey and covering many small-scale projects in a wide range of properties and the success in communicating to a wide audience of employees and members of the public.

The company operates 80 properties for public-sector clients. They include four national sports centres, large family leisure centres, school leisure facilities and a theatre.

The various projects include pool covers to reduce heat loss from water overnight, installing variable-speed drives on air-handling equipment, re-commissioning building-management systems and installing sub-metering.

Several centres have undergone minor refurbishment to reduce heat loss through the fabric and maximise the use of daylight.

More important than this work, however, has been the commitment to educate centre managers as energy champions. Paul Bailey’s view is that energy should, and will, form a part of the role of every employee. All centres participate in a league table based on the operational rating received to encourage competition between sites.

One benefit of Paul Bailey’s efforts is that information for preparing Display Energy Certificates was readily available for energy assessors from I-prophets Energy Services. Projects to receive priority during the coming year have been identified, with ownership and awareness at site level.
