Trinity College Dublin requires an independent, robust and commercially aware engineering consultancy firm/consortium to assist in developing the client requirements for establishing an ‘Energy Performance Contractor’ on a pilot project at Trinity Hall Dartry. The consultant should have a strong commercial focus to support and enhance the business case through the approval process and include benchmarking with other Irish, EU and International universities. Proven successful in understanding and compliance issues/risks relating to EU procurement directives will be an essential component of this commission. Depending on the success of this pilot project the University plans to roll out the performance contracting model across it’s city centre campus and adjacent/satellite sites. This project is being driven by key stakeholder across the University namely Estates & Facilities, Finance, our sustainability partners and the green campus group. Trinity was granted the Green Flag in April 2013. This goal was achieved by Trinity’s unwavering commitment to its objectives for energy and carbon emissions, waste management/litter reduction, water and wastewater management, sustainable transport, resource use, biodiversity, green procurement, education and research, communication and student involvement.
