Education Sector Case Study – LED Lighting Upgrade

The Brief

A change in usage of a classroom required an improved lighting solution, in line with ongoing energy efficiency and cost saving targets.

The Client

Woodham Academy Secondary School, Newton Aycliffe


The Activity:

Woodham Academy have been engaged in a longer term project to save energy usage and costs for the school. However with the sudden required change in use of one of the general teaching classrooms to a science lab; this became a priority for an improved lighting environment which neatly sat alongside the energy goals already set by the school.

At relatively short notice, 3 of the Tomlinson Longstaff team replaced the previous lighting with LED. Over a period of 3 hours, starting the work once the students had left site and continuing until the job was finished to ensure no disruption to the client.

The Result:

Immediately, the LED lighting solution installed improved the lighting environment within the lab workspace.

In the longer term, the school will require a reduced maintenance schedule due to the upgrade to LED lighting; thereby creating cost savings on an annual basis. 

In addition, electricity consumption has also decreased, providing the school with an ongoing annual saving and an increase in their energy efficiency rating.
