“As a major property developer with diverse portfolios and varying energy requirements, Berkeley Homes is undoubtedly a challenging customer.
Unify has risen to the challenge. They offer a wide range of expert energy procurement and management services, coupled with a highly “hands-on” approach which we are putting to active use in maximising our business needs and optimising our energy efficiencies”.Steve Ridout, Buying and Product Manager, Berkeley Homes (NEL)
“When Unify was first recommended to us, we did not have a centralised energy management renewal strategy. Our portfolio of fifty properties was being managed by local administrators and some had slipped out of contract.
Now, a single point of contact at Unify manages all our renewals, significantly cutting our admin time and ensuring we are always locked into great prices. This year we enter the next stage of the process, switching to green solutions at no premium cost, to support our corporate environmental policy”.Robbie Birchall, Strategic Assistant to the CEO, Marlowe Fire & Security Group
“For a number of years now we’ve worked closely with Unify’s procurement and project specialists, finding them to be invaluable partners in our work monitoring, reporting on and enhancing our energy efficiencies across the centres under our management.
We’re also engaging with them to undertake energy audits at various sites with a view to designing and implementing a range of cost saving HVAC improvement schemes”.Steve Lawrence, Operations Director, Serco Leisure

“Unify has designed and project managed the implementation of a wide range of energy saving LED lighting projects across four of LiveWire’s key sport, library and wellbeing facilities during the course of a five-month rolling programme.
We could not be happier with the end products both in terms of the significant improvements to lighting quality – and, therefore, our members’ experience – and also importantly to the considerable energy and financial savings that have been achieved as a result of their exceptional designs. Unify’s meticulous management has minimised the impact to our day to day operations and we are absolutely delighted with the financial benefits that we are already experiencing; reductions of up to 60% compared to our previous running costs.”Keith Maddock, Neighbourhood Wellbeing Director, LiveWire Warrington
