Halesowen College

Halesowen College Joins HSG’s Education Provider Portfolio

Halesowen College in the West Midlands has teamed up with HSG to elevate its key strategic objective of ensuring that its learning environments are sustainable and demonstrate its firm commitment to environmental responsibility; with an aim to reduce its carbon footprint by 10% in 2023 and by 20% in 2025.

The Challenge

Halesowen College is a medium-sized general further education college operating from three sites close to the centre of Halesowen, offering a wide range of academic and vocational courses from entry-level to high education.

The college was looking to bolster its eco-credentials in line with its 2021-2025 strategy. Ureco provided an all-in-one solution to preventing maintenance callouts, improving their washroom experience and providing an opportunity to save water.

Our Approach

We visited Halesowen College and carried out a survey of its main site, Whittingham Road Campus, which is host to 12 teaching blocks.

We went on to install 36 Urecos and 14 Uretech water managers in washrooms across the campus, with plans to install in their other two sites, Shenstone House and Coombs Wood, in 2023.

The Result

This will enable Halesowen College to reduce water consumption by nearly 11 million litres over the next three years, saving 11.44 tonnes of CO2. The Ureco system installation will also save more than £8,000 in water bills.

Halesowen College Head of Estates and Facilities, Corinne, Youren, said: “One of our core values as a College is to innovate and always look for improvement and our team continues to review how we can improve our campuses and environmental impact year on year.

“As well as reducing our water consumption and carbon footprint, the Ureco system will greatly improve the washroom experience and reduce costly maintenance and repairs.

“We are delighted to be working alongside HSG, a fellow Midlands-based establishment, to deliver this programme and the feedback from both staff and students has already been positive.”
