Challenge

With so many sites across the UK, CBRE allow their tenants the responsibility to manage their own gas and electricity billing and meter installation. A lot of tenants found that once they moved into their rented site they did not know where to turn to for their gas and meter installation. Many of these tenants are restaurant managers who require the correct meter installation work in order to run their business.

Solution

CBRE enlisted us to work alongside them and their tenants, Energy Service Hub took control and managed the installation of gas and electricity meters for the tenants.

Value

By trusting us the manage installation of the gas and electricity meters, we ensured it complied with industry standards. By liasing with the tenants directly, we ensured the installed meters can cope with the demands of their energy requirements. This freed CBRE’s time to allow them to procure their business and their tenants knew they could reply on us to manage their energy efficiently.

“Since we started using UB Services they have done all we have asked from them. They have worked tirelessly on Manchester First Street Development in Manchester where they have arranged meter installations for many of our new tenants. Most importantly, they have reduced our energy costs at the main no.1 building by 15%.”
