Boss Controls in the education sector
Energy reduction in schools, colleges and universities
Boss Control’s BMS/BEMS engineers reduce energy costs in schools, colleges and universities. This section explains how Boss Control’s BMS/BEMS engineers reduce energy costs in schools, colleges and universities, helping facilities managers achieve their priorities and KPIs.
The Government’s objective for the education sector
“The government’s objective is to make sure that further education provides the skilled workforce employers need and helps individuals reach their full potential.” (Government website). Boss Controls’ helps you to monitor CO2 levels to keep students and teachers alert and in good health, reaching their full potential.
Convenient and flexible for FM and estates managers
We know school estate and FM managers are busy with multiple KPIs and you often need to be in two places at once. Boss Controls’ remote BMS/BEMS solutions offer convenience because we can spot problems because they cause you downtime. This also reduces wear and tear on your plant, extending its life.
We help academies demonstrate energy cost reductions
Boss Controls works remotely with many schools, academies and universities, so despite our client’s buildings being formed of different departments and campuses, keeping control and monitoring energy consumption is simple using our remote online system.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) says:
Whether you work in the NHS or in private health care, optimising temperature for wellbeing and comfort is proven to increase smart thinking, allowing doctors, nurses and healthcare workers to reach their full potential (HSE).
The HSE states: “Extremes of temperature (very cold and very hot) can put physiological stress on an individual. Lack of control of the temperature of a workplace (e.g. in an open plan office) can lead to job dissatisfaction and increased incidence of stress and long term sickness absence”. One study found that productivity increases of 2.8% could be attributed to employees working with advanced thermal controls in their workstations (Kroner W, Stark-Martin J A, Willemain T, “Using Advanced Office Technology to Increase Productivity” (Working Paper, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute: Center for Architectural Research, 1992).
Boss Controls’ not only optimises BMS for thermal comfort, it also optimises BEMS to monitor CO2 levels in many schools and colleges to keep students alert and in good health. In a DfES report, high levels of CO2 were seen to reduce the attention span of students.
