Apex Hotels make substantial savings in gas and electricity costs

Client:

Apex Hotels is an expanding UK-wide group with 7 hotels in Edinburgh, London and Dundee. They provide stylish and contemporary accommodation more than suitable for leisure and business guests. Each of their hotels is situated in city centre areas. This ensures that they are placed in the ideal location for guests. Each Apex hotel offers luxury and convenience at very reasonable prices.

Situation:

By outsourcing the management of utilities at these sites to BCC, the team at Apex was relieved of time-consuming administration as well as the hassle of dealing with utility companies.Business Cost Consultants (BCC) was engaged by Apex Hotels to manage and reduce utility costs at each of their 7 hotels.

Strategy:

Through consolidation of various supply contracts and using their extensive knowledge of the energy market to negotiate new contracts, BCC was able to assist Apex Hotels in securing substantial reductions in their gas and electricity costs.

BCC’s experts utilise their positive relationships with all the major energy suppliers. The team also have access to daily market data, therefore they are well placed to advise when could be a good time to go to market and purchase energy contracts.

Result:

BCC have assisted Apex Hotels in securing a 36% reduction in overall utility costs within a few months of being engaged by them. This represents a large cash saving and considerable reduction in administrative time and hassle.

Having a utility expert manage and reduce costs has brought peace of mind as well as substantial cost savings to Apex Hotels. BCC continue to work with Apex Hotels to reduce their energy and water consumption, and hence their carbon emissions.

“The team at BCC have taken over management of our utility contracts and very quickly implemented new agreements that have saved us over 30%. BCC have improved our understanding of the factors affecting utility pricing and are working with us on further cost reduction initiatives that will reduce our expenditure further. I have every confidence that BCC will continue to generate pricing and efficiency savings for our group over the coming years.”
