Prism has been providing engineering services for BCIT for many years and as a part of BC Hydro’s Workplace Conservation Awareness program, our team has been supporting their goal of further embedding energy conservation into the culture of BCIT.

In celebration of BCIT’s 50th Anniversary, BCIT’s Green Team Executive collaborated with Prism to launch an innovative multi-year campaign to encourage energy conservation behaviours in office spaces.

At the heart of the campaign are a team of volunteer staff and faculty in each department trained as Office Doctors who help their coworkers or ‘patients’ to analyze their office space and learn about efficient lighting, managing plug loads and room temperature.

After a successful pilot in the Summer, the campaign in now in full swing with 28 trained Office Doctors. Over the coming months staff and faculty across departments will have the opportunity to learn one-on-one about strategies tailored to their workspace to improve their comfort and save energy.
