Kelvinside Academy save 20.4% on water costs


Kelvinside Academy is a leading independent school in the west of Scotland catering for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 18. The school comprises 3 stages: Junior Start, the Junior School and the Senior School.


After being appointed by Kelvinside Academy in 2003 to manage their utilities, Business Cost Consultants (BCC’s) team noticed that the size of the water meters being used on the school sites was inappropriate for the levels of water consumption.


Having worked out which meters would be suitable these were replaced, resulting in reduced annual costs to the client and also a substantial rebate from the supplier – a saving of 20.4%.

Since 2003 BCC have continued to work with Kelvinside Academy to manage their utility supplies and identify areas where further savings can be made. Over the years BCC have helped Kelvinside Academy save thousands on their water costs and have recouped compensation on behalf of the client for serious water leaks.

“Business Cost Consultants are a proactive organisation that examine a wide variety of issues in detail in the ever changing world of utilities and always seem to find a solution that is to the benefit of the client.”
