A project for Ibstock Brick that will deliver in excess of savings of 170,000 kg CO2 per year has been Highly Commended by the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) at its Annual Awards.
Ibstock Brick, which has made a significant investment in a new factory in Leicestershire, commissioned building controls integrator Abtec Building Technologies (Abtec BT) to deliver an alternative approach to traditional lighting and controls. Abtec BT proposed a solution for the new manufacturing facility which is an exemplar of intelligent building management.
The ECA’s panel of independent judges rewarded the project to Abtec BT for its demonstration of significant CO2 savings, anticipated energy savings of 50% and project paybacks of under two years.
The Highly Commended certificate was collected by Ibstock Brick’s site engineering manager John Grew and Quality, environmental and energy manager Michael McGowan alongside the director of Abtec BT, Dave Watkins.
