Founded more than a century ago, Celtic FC is a Scottish football club. The club plays home games at Celtic Park, commonly referred to as “Parkhead”, in Glasgow.
Business Cost Consultants were appointed by Celtic FC as utility consultants. We advised that the water consumption should be investigated. At the time, Celtic’s Facilities Manager thought there was nothing to lose because of the contingency basis on which BCC work. If we are unable to save any money for our clients, we charge no fees.
Business Cost Consultants had their water specialist investigate the water usage at Celtic’s main stadium in Parkhead and their nearby training ground. The team started by installing smart data loggers to the water meters, which enabled them to remotely monitor the water consumption.
BCC’s water experts then analysed the data, which showed the volume of water consumed every half hour. By logging the water consumption on a 24/7 basis, BCC were able to identify inefficiencies on both match days and non-match days.
