Testimonials

International School of Aberdeen

I was recently approached by DB Group who offered to carry out a “Water Audit” for The International School of Aberdeen.  ISA was having problems with the water charges being billed by the supplier and I was getting nowhere in resolving the situation myself. Within a few months DB Group managed to secure a refund of over £117,000. I was delighted with the result and would highly recommend their services. They are a very professional, friendly and competent team, who will deliver what they promise.

The Grovelands Medical Centre

We have always found DB Group very professional. They do all they can to save us money on our energy bills. We forward any paperwork to them and they take the hassle of this task away from us. Couldn't be happier with their help.

Loretto Schools

We were really impressed with the significant rebate DBC were able to secure for us from our existing supplier and we are now reaping the benefit of ongoing cost savings through changing our supplier. The process was easy and straightforward and the results impressive.

George Watson’s College

Just thought I would drop you a brief note of thanks for the work you have done for the School in auditing our water bills and in identifying potential water saving measures for the future. I have been very impressed with the way in which you have worked with the School, causing minimal disruption and inconvenience to staff and in achieving real savings. I will certainly consider you for future work on our gas and electricity contracts next year and have passed your details on to our Director of IT Services to consider for telecoms.

The Law Society of Scotland

DB Group audited our office location for billing accuracy and water consumption efficiency. They identified a discrepancy between what we should have been using against what was passing through the meters. We asked DB Group to implement their recommendations and as a result have reduced our water usage by over 70%, eliminated a lot of wastage and reduced our annual water spend by £6,500. We would highly recommend their services to any other company wanting to reduce their water costs and consumption.

Dollar Academy

We gave our water bills to DB Group who did a lot of analysis work on them. DB Group found that there were technical billing errors involving our building and building in our grounds. They were able to secure a £90,000 rebate from our water supplier! We would say it’s well worth using DB Group to audit utilities and telecoms.

Tune Hotel Haymarket

From my very first contact with DB Group, I was extremely impressed and completely at ease with their approach. The Water Consultant was very professional, amiable, and was not at all ‘pushy’. He explained exactly how the company go about their business and laid out all the facts. Once I verified the details with the supplier, the discounted contract via David Brown Consulting was organised in no time at all. Subsequently, a higher tier of discount has since been applied to our water bills. The other members of staff in the office were equally adept and worked tirelessly to achieve the huge refunds that have been returned to Tune Hotel. David Brown Consulting has certainly restored my faith in this type of consultancy.

Pipeline Technique Ltd

Having used David Brown Consulting at a previous employer, I was keen to get them in here at Pipeline Technique to see what savings they could offer. The process was straightforward, send copies of utility bills and let them do the rest and I wasn’t disappointed, significant savings on electricity/gas and a 10% discount on water for continuing to use the same supplier, it really is a no-brainer. Thanks again guys!
