Optimised Energy latest client acquisition involves meter identification, invoice validation and more for the UK’s largest small business landlord.
The UK’s railway arches have long been a haven for boutique, niche and start-up businesses. The bakeries, barbers, coffee shops, eateries, gyms, micro-breweries and mechanics who set up shop underneath the arches are an essential part of the UK economy.
So when, in early 2019, The Arch Company bought Network Rail’s portfolio of former station buildings and 5,200 railway arches, it became multi-use landlord to a host of unique businesses which also include offices and warehouses.
Many (although not all) of the arches have metered utility supplies and, in taking on the portfolio, The Arch Company, now the UK’s largest small business landlord, wanted clarity on which were metered.
Optimised Energy have delivered energy bureau services to a host of commercial real estate, retail and public sector organisations, so were the natural partner to trust with this highly fluid multi-tenanted estate new portfolio of properties.
“The Arch Company needs a detailed understanding of the metering within each of its arch properties,” says Optimised Energy's Head of Sales & Marketing, Chris Gore. “Through Optimised Energy's skilled engineers and supplier relationships, we are working to ensure the company has the data it needs to effectively manage energy use across its estate.”
Optimised Energy's position as one of the UK’s leading utility bureaus is also enabling it to go beyond meter identification and invoice validation, giving The Arch Company seamless access to expertise in procurement strategy, site works and sustainability commitments.
“In our experience, complex portfolios require more than a single avenue of approach,” explains Chris. “By choosing Optimised Energy, the Arch Company can access all the expertise it needs to fully understand its estate, the challenges and the opportunities.”
