The Southern Co-op
Portfolio assessment, renewables feasibility, carbon reduction strategy, biodiversity opportunities
We captured data about the carbon efficiency of Southern Co-op buildings, to help the retailer make informed decisions about their building portfolio.
They are bound by the government’s CRC scheme to monitor and report its carbon, and we are committed to helping them reduce their energy usage. Changes to the thermal performance of their buildings, lighting, heating, cooling and refrigeration can all make a difference to the way they use energy and produce carbon.
The remit of this project meant site surveys of 200 stores and funeral care buildings in a two-year period, an exciting challenge that we completed, giving us an insight into their building stock and enabling us to collate data from each site and map out a strategy for them.
We used our survey data to produce benchmark information, services reports, capital expenditure information and renewables feasibility. This gave them informed choices about how each building within their portfolio is performing, and what the potential is for renovation or retrofit.
