Building Performance Insights - December 2017

In our final Building Performance Insights of 2017, I would like to thank all our customers and partners for your support over the last year, we have enjoyed working with you and look forward to supporting you to improve your buildings, people and organisational performance and productivity in 2018.

We have had a busy year at LCMB, in addition to saving our customers millions of pounds and tens of tonnes of COemissions, by optimising and streamlining the operation of their buildings we have developed a number of tools and guides to further improve the productivity and performance of buildings and estates.

Over the last twelve months we have written our ultimate guide to improving performance for businesses and higher education institutions, these can be downloaded for free from our website using the above links.

We have also advanced our Innovate UK and EPSRC supported project Whole Life Performance plus (WLP+) to develop an indoor environmental quality model to optimise workplace productivity, health and well being in office buildings.

This work, lead by LCMB, is being developed by a consortium consisting of Argent, British Council for Offices (BCO), Constructing Excellence, Emcor, King’s College London and Oxford Brookes University. In November, BCO launched their report on improving productivity in offices, together with the initial conclusions of our research. You can read an overview of the reports on our website or contact us to discuss how our building performance evaluation service can improve the performance of your existing workplaces.

Once again, thank you for your support in 2017 and I wish you, your friends and families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

LCMB's accelerated ROI audit

Too many organisations spend large sums of money on the wrong initiatives that generate a poor return or even a loss.

This is why we created the LCMB accelerated ROI audit. It cuts through the noise and quickly, clearly identifies the untapped performance improvement areas within your buildings.

The audit uncovers operational inefficiencies such as under-utilised space and facilities, as well as cost and energy reduction opportunities, and then provides a clear plan for realising potential.

By implementing the plan, we guarantee the audit pays for itself within 6 months and thereafter generates a positive return.

Contact John O’Brien on t: 01295 722823, e: to discuss how the LCMB accelerated ROI audit can improve your return on investment.
