Energy management and reduction specialist SMARTech energy celebrates 9th anniversary with a major office refurbishment
Chippenham-based SMARTech energy is celebrating its ninth anniversary in style with investment into a new office makeover.
The refurbishment of SMARTech energy’s premises on the Sheldon Business Park has seen an open plan office reconfigured into three new glass walled offices and two meeting rooms – allowing for greater privacy when discussing projects with team members and clients.
Additional improvements include an innovative layout with breakout space and the inclusion of a living wall from Growing Revolution – with specifically sourced plants to improve air quality and enhance the working environment.
New internal and external branding and signage from local company Nettl is also set to enforce SMARTech energy’s mission statement and identity.
Taking SMARTech energy to the next level
Managing Director and Founder of SMARTech energy Stuart Pearce said “The refurbishment project has created a much-needed workspace for our growing team. The reimagined space will allow employees to maintain and benefit from a positive company culture centred around our core values of quality, accountability, integrity and passion. We are looking forward to starting the company’s new financial year in fresh surroundings with room to grow in order to take SMARTech energy to the next level”.
Successful Business Growth
Founded in 2014, SMARTech energy partner with UK businesses to reduce their energy consumption, costs and carbon by up to 33%.
In direct contrast to its humble beginnings, the company now employs 14 staff members at its office on the Sheldon Business Park in Chippenham, Wiltshire.
This is made up of an expert team of energy consultants, engineers and digital and technical administrators, who develop bespoke energy management strategies which optimise the energy performance and operating conditions of a client’s facility.
This, together with the installation of energy efficient technologies with proven and guaranteed energy savings – plus on-going support, really helps businesses to save energy, save money and save carbon.
To mark the company’s 9th anniversary, the team recently took part in a pizza making lunch time activity.
Stuart described it as “What better way to celebrate than getting the team fuelled and fired up with a thoroughly enjoyable lunch in a fresh and vibrant environment”.

Guaranteed energy reduction
SMARTech energy is an award-winning energy management and reduction specialist. The team partners with medium to large businesses and organisations to reduce their energy usage and carbon footprint through its Energy Efficiency as a Service programme.
They do this by reducing a site’s total energy consumption through bespoke energy management strategies and technologies which optimise the performance and operating conditions of a site.
This, combined with full energy consultancy, reporting and measured and guaranteed savings, is helping businesses and organisations to overcome the financial and logistical barriers of reducing energy consumption, costs and carbon.
A volatile energy market
The volatility of the energy market means organisations must be more aware of their energy usage and look for solutions which reduce their dependency on energy from external sources and ultimately, endeavour to become as self-sustainable as possible.
Jamie said “Reducing a site’s total energy consumption is what really lowers a business’s exposure to a volatile energy market and I’m passionate about helping customers to find the right solution to reduce emissions, improve efficiency and to save costs”.
Huge value to both the company and our customers
Stuart continues “We are thrilled to have Jamie join the team. His understanding of the issues facing UK industry will enable him to drive the benefits and enormous value of the EEaaS offering”.
We are already working in the hotel and education sectors and we are looking to increase our work with large manufacturing companies across the country, where energy efficiency can directly impact their bottom line. We know we can achieve savings for them – and for the planet, within a few short months.”
