Two new appointments at CSC

Published:  03 July, 2012

Capital Shopping Centres has increased its focus on energy and operational efficiency with two new appointments in its facilities team.

Alan Richardson has been appointed as group energy manager, following an eight year period working as an external consultant to CSC, providing advice on sustainability best practice. The decision to bring this role in house reflects CSC’s commitment to achieving its sustainability target of 30 per cent portfolio energy savings by 2014.

In addition Richard Weavers, previously technical services director at Land Securities, has joined CSC as project manager, operations. He will be responsible for reviewing opportunities and delivering operational efficiency throughout the centres and at group level. This will include supporting projects such as CSC’s latest energy saving initiative which involves replacing 30,000 existing light bulbs with LED bulbs which use significantly less energy.

Brian Boundy, head of facilities at CSC, said: “We made the decision to strengthen our facilities team in these two closely aligned areas due to the increasing importance – both from a corporate responsibility point of view and general good business management – of better managing our energy usage and operations, and ensuring we comply with current and upcoming legislation in these areas.”

Both Alan and Richard are now in place in their new roles at CSC.
