Excellence in Sustainability
The ‘Excellence in Sustainability’ award recognises an outstanding sustainability initiative undertaken by a facilities service’s organisation throughout 2022. We were thrilled to learn our team at UCD has been shortlisted for their efforts to save on water consumption. Through the use of the Comac InAqua system, our team has committed to saving 500,000 litres of water each year. This is initiative is part of Bidvest Noonan’s goal of embedding sustainability into every facet of our business and working with clients to maximise our environmental performance.
Innovation in Technology & Systems
2022 was a huge success on the Technology and Innovation front for our business. This award recognises a company that has made the best use of a system or technology in Ireland’s Facilities Management sector. Led by Director of Innovation & Technology, Peter Smyth, our business has seen success through the implementation of our Dynamic Cleaning solution. This technology uses data from sensor technology and powerful web portal dashboard reports to eliminate inefficiencies, create cost savings, and improve quality by matching cleaning resources to areas of activity. In addition to cleaning efficiencies, the system also provides powerful data-driven insights to create energy savings, environmental benefits, and improved building space management for clients.
We look forward to the event, taking place on March 2nd at the Crowne Plaza, Dublin
