“We are delighted with our new lighting system. Not only do our pupils and staff benefit from optimum lighting levels for learning, the school will now enjoy low maintenance and reduced energy bills for many years to come.”
Spokesperson on behalf of the school
“We are proud to have been commissioned for this project. Bringing schools up to date with the latest lighting technologies is a delicate balancing act between funding and classroom closure to facilitate low-impact installation. The installation took just over four weeks and was conducted during the summer period to ensure minimum disruption. It’s anticipated that the payback on investment will be in just four years, and by specifying products with up to a five-year guarantee, further savings via a maintenance free system will also be enjoyed.”
