North Dorset District Council has decreased the energy use of its main office building in Blandford by 27% since 2008. Some of the improvements have focused on enabling staff to work in a more environmentally friendly manner by, for example, having a more efficient waste management and recycling system and buying energy efficient pool car vehicles. Some members of staff have also taken on a small garden in the grounds of Nordon – maintaining this in their own time and enabling them to grow fruit and vegetables as well as making use of the office grounds in a productive manner.
Technically the Council has installed a low cost energy monitoring system to track and measure gas, electricity and water usage, installing insulation in the roof and cavities, improving the technology in the server room and replacing the heating control system.
The Council’s Sustainability Officer will be on hand to explain the journey that the Council is on and will show visitors around the buildings. The Blandford Car Club will also be available at Nordon for visitors to find out more about this car sharing service.
