  16. 16. Behaviour Vs Technology Sustainabilityƒ
  17. 17. • Security trained to turn off as much of the building as possible as early in the evening as possible • Cleaning team trained to turn off lights as they move about the building out of hours • For out of hours events building systems only operate during the live event, not during the set-up or break-down times • Signage to encourage staff to turn off lights and devices and to use stairs instead of lifts • Staff trained how to use office heating, cooling and ventilation more effectively and conservatively Five examples of culture change Sustainabilityƒ
  18. 18. • Modernisation of IT server equipment and virtualisation • High-tech lighting solutions: motion sensors, automated timed control, LED’s Low-tech lighting solutions: pull-cords, lag switches, re-positioning switches to increase usage by staff • Bin store extractor fan changed to run only during opening hours • Ensuring that all exhibits are controlled by a single ‘exhibit switch’ and allowing different floors to be turned on and off separately • Fine-tuning and introducing new programming into the control software of our building’s advanced environmental systems…… Five examples of ‘small’ technology projects Sustainabilityƒ
  19. 19. 3 large technology projects........ Sustainabilityƒ
