London venue teams up with Dyson to save energy

The Business Design Centre (BDC), London has teamed up with product design innovators Dyson to introduce the new energy-efficient Dyson Airblade hand dryers into the venue.

Commenting on the initiative, Peter Clenshaw, BDC’s exhibition services director, said: "We are very excited to be working with Dyson on this project. The revolutionary technology will not only reduce our energy consumption
significantly in this area, but also reflect the BDC's desire to introduce innovative and design-led products within the venue.”

This partnership with Dyson is is part of the BDC's commitment to energy conservation and improving the venue. The unveiling of the new driers will take place at the New Designers 2007 exhibition on the 4 July."

Conventional hand dryers consume a lot of energy. With the new Dyson Airblades fitted into all washrooms, the Business Design Centre will reduce its energy usage in this area by 81%. Dyson Airblade uses the long life, low energy Dyson Digital Motor to create a high-speed sheet of air that dries hands in 10 seconds.

“We are pleased to be working with such a forward-thinking organisation
that has always been the first to showcase creativity and design,” said David Walker, director of sales for the commercial division of Dyson.

One of the BDC's main corporate objectives is to implement an energy efficiency strategy, which will ensure the supply of efficient and environmentally friendly energy over the long term. This includes the introduction of motion sensor lighting in all toilets and most offices, and the internal promotion of different energy=saving initiatives that staff can take responsibility for.

The venue also plans to increase its total waste recycling from 3% to 27% by the end of 2007/8 and has signed up to the Islington Climate Change Partnership, which involves working with the council and other businesses to reduce the carbon footprint of the London borough of Islington, where it is based, by 15% by 2010.
