Energy & Emissions

Many commercial buildings use more than half of their energy when empty.

With rising energy prices, and increasing awareness of greenhouse gases and other pollutants from burning fossil fuels, businesses large and small want to reduce energy use and associated emissions.

BENSS provides solutions for businesses to assess and monitor their energy usage, identify where building performance and maintenance issues are wasting energy, implement internal procedures to reduce energy use, and help design the workspace and work processes to be more energy efficient.

We can also assess opportunities to minimise energy use and increase efficiencies throughout the supply chain.

Where an organisation generates emissions directly, our experienced consultants can assist with Environmental Monitoring.

Workplace Energy Assessments

Our experienced consultants can advise the most practical and cost-effective ways to reduce consumption, based on individual site and client operations.

Workplace Design & Use


Effective workplace design and use can have a significant impact on energy efficiency and productivity. Our consultants assess the workplace during normal use, consultat with all stakeholders, and provide a detailed report highlighting key areas where consumption could be reduced.

Energy consumption can be reduced by maximising the effectiveness of existing HVAC systems, or harnessing natural airflow. Positioning of furniture and workstations, and selection and use of furnishings and surface finishes, can also reduce the need for artificial heating, cooling or lighting.

Control of natural light, to reduce the need for artificial light, or reflect heat away from the workplace, can often be improved by workspace layout, selection of surface finishes & colours, or window tinting.

Our consultants also assess general work space use, and work process efficiency. For example, minimising the number of building areas used for a particular process, installing automatic controls for building services, or utilising the heating or cooling of plant and equipment for secondary heating and cooling of workspaces.
