Video Production Sydney: case study video for office of environment and heritage

The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage hired Sydney based video production company Shakespeare Media to create a corporate video to showcase their energy saver program.

The Grace Hotel, one of Sydney’s most prominent landmarks and heritage hotels in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, is taking action with the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage.

Steve Hennesey, Energy Saver Contractor:
"Hotels have a number of challenges and heating, ventilating and air conditioning is a major component of a hotels energy costs. Getting it operating right is absolutely critical.

Philip Pratley, General Manager, Grace Hotel:
"Ensuring the comfort of our guests is of the utmost importance to us…”

The Office of Environment and Heritage provide businesses with specialised advice and work to identify, quantify and implement energy efficiency opportunities.

Steve Hennesey, Energy Saver Contractor:
"Energy efficiency or lack of it is actually the hidden cost. People that are involved in the building day in day out, after a while they actually become immune to all that, they don’t see it because there is so much going on. Someone else coming in who is just focusing on where are the clues, just looking for it – that can be quite valuable”.

Potential savings of $170,000 per year were identified from energy efficiency projects.

Philip Pratley, General Manager, Grace Hotel:
Based on the energy investigation we were able to identify which of the systems were least efficient and costing us the most to run.”

HVAC savings alone were estimated to save the Grace Hotel around $80,000 a year with capital costs recouped within 2 years.

By implementing all of the recommendations, the Grace Hotel can improve their NABERS hotel energy rating from 4 to 4.5.

Steve Hennesey, Energy Saver Contractor:
"To put that into perspective that’s a further 22% saving on what was already a reasonably good performance."

The Grace Hotel installed a sub metering system on their HVAC plant that helps the building manager analyse plant performance and when improvements are made to measure and verify energy savings.

This will make accessing the NSW Energy Savings Scheme much simpler.
