Like many other higher education institutions, The Gordon was facing operational cost challenges and aging infrastructure, particularly with regard to the major services infrastructure across their buildings. Through the Victorian Government’s Greener Government Buildings program, The Gordon sought to invest in integrated energy retrofits to increase the uptake of efficient technologies and renewables, together better positioning their facilities towards a sustainable education environment.
FG Advisory conducted a detailed Level 3 Energy Audit across all multiple campuses and provided ‘turn-key’ energy upgrade solutions, particularly with regard to LED lighting and rooftop solar PV, with guaranteed savings outcomes under an Energy Performance Contract. Within this end-to-end process, our team fully managed all audit, design and works implementation with The Gordon, and provided performance measurement and verification reporting to demonstrate savings outcomes.
In all, The Gordon Energy Performance Contract will create guaranteed savings of $1.7 million dollars over a five year payback period, providing exceptional return and demonstrating environmental leadership in the sector.
