Etherley Lane Primary School – Classroom Lighting Upgrade

The Brief

Two classrooms requiring faulty lighting repairs at Etherley Lane Primary School.

The Activity:

Our site assessment determined that the faulty lighting units were unable to be repaired due to faulty ballasts within the original light fittings. 

Due to budget constraints, two solutions were proposed; either replace the faulty lights identified or replace the full classroom lighting in each instance. 

Etherley Lane Primary School decided to proceed with replacing the full lighting solution, and so we took advantage of the school holiday period to minimise any disruption to the client or students, despatching one of our engineers who completed the 2 full classroom job within 3 days, replacing 19 lights in total. 


The Result:

Lighting improvement throughout the classrooms, with an additional estimated 25% reduction in carbon usage for the school. 

In addition, aesthetic improvement within the classroom environment with uniform fittings throughout and ceiling panels replacing the previously mounted strips.
