Overview

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop offers a supportive environment for emerging and established artists, providing studios, fully-equipped workshops and professional development opportunities throughout the year.

Situation

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop brought BCC on board to lower their energy and water costs. In addition to procurement of new contracts, we also support the client through full contract management, bureau services and query resolution.

Solution

As procurement experts, the BCC team analyse the energy market to determine the best time to buy new contracts. This means we can obtain the best prices for our clients, and then manage the whole procurement process on their behalf.

Through procuring energy contracts at the right time, we achieved a significant reduction in costs for Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop – amounting to savings of 48% in gas and 27% in electricity, as well as a further 15% in water.

Result

30%
Total reduction of utility costs

Annual savings

We appointed Business Cost Consultants and immediately tasked them with helping us to reduce our utility costs. They sat down with us to develop a Comprehensive Utility Management plan to cover the procurement and management of all our energy and water contracts. In less than 12 months, BCC have not only reduced our costs by over 30% but we also think that they’ve increased the sustainability of our organisation. It’s a really effective way to focus on this large section of our outgoings and therefore has a big benefit to our financial situation. I will be recommending them.
