and escalation prevents operational and energy performance drift
Typical of many tertiary educational establishments in the UK, the energy costs at Bournemouth University are significant. This can be attributed to a diverse estate comprising a large number of buildings of various ages and functions that have been added to the establishment over time.
Bournemouth University has two main campuses but is also responsible for the University Centre Yeovil. Due to the diversity of the estate, energy and utility use has been a complex management and resourcing issue.
Against the backdrop of recent funding changes, that have forced all universities to re-evaluate their business model, a technology-based solution was implemented across the estate, to improve efficiency and performance in energy management.
Next Control Systems Limited, parent company to AXON, designed and installed an upgraded building control system. This brought immediate savings observed at a billing level but lacked the granularity to enable a more strategic approach. This is where AXON was able to help, with their building performance platform.

“We have a great relationship with Next Controls, who will be a key partner in taking Bournemouth University to the top of the ‘Green League’. We like the fact that we can access our AXON energy dashboards from any device as opposed to a single fixed location.”
