The pre-COVID-19 challenge
British Gas were looking for innovative ways to reduce their buildings’ energy use and carbon emissions, while maintaining high comfort and air quality levels for staff.

Large infrastructure changes and equipment upgrades would have been too expensive, especially when considering disruption to existing operations within the building.
