Addressing Barriers to EXEED
ADDRESSING TYPICAL BARRIERS TO EXEED
It will add extra engineering cost
Yes, but proven to lower capital & running costs so will get excellent ROI (Return On Investment)
It will extend project schedule - can't deliver late
You can plan EXEED to run in parallel with the traditional design process - starting from current design state. No delay typically results from implementing EXEED unless business case allows
Corporate Guidelines dictate minimum engineering requirements
It can be difficult to change these within the constraints of a design project. Use EXEED to change Corporate Specification for next project
We are already investing in the most efficient utilities
End-use requirements and the energy service challenge is where the big opportunities exist
We are already delivering best practice!
EXEED goes beyond current design practices to deliver optimum energy-efficient design and it will drive NEW INNOVATION, NEW BEST PRACTICE
We use a checklist system to ensure energy efficiency is incorporated into design
Checklist tend to address systems in isolation rather than holistically
We expect that own engineering contractor will deliver an energy-efficient design
Unless engineering contractors are required to meet specific and measurable targets in relation to energy efficient design they typically do not engage in any meaningful effort.
We apply a 'Copy & paste' approach to reduce cost, schedule and risk
If we keep doing what we're doing, we're going to keep getting what we're getting!
