The Client

Glenmead Primary is a well-respected school in Great Barr, Birmingham that caters for around 400 pupils aged 4-11.

The Brief

The larger than average school wanted to find ways to reduce operating costs in the most effective way, while also being constrained by a tight budget.

It was aware of the availability of Salix interest-free funding and chose to investigate the potential for cost-reducing LED lighting that did not require big capital investment. The school called for three tenders and awarded the contract to SaveMoneyCutCarbon.

The lighting project would improve the quality of light throughout the school, which was old and had deteriorated.

The Solution

First requirement was a full survey of the school to assess the state of current lighting and calculate the level of savings to be made by fitting a range of energy-saving LED lamps in all areas. SaveMoneyCutCarbon then discussed in detail the findings with the finance manager to confirm the exact specifications for the project.

SaveMoneyCutCarbon has extensive experience of energy-saving projects in the schools sector and the fully DBS-checked team fully managed the lighting retrofit over an eight-day period, including survey, specification, installation and testing.

Annual savings of £4,169 through lighting upgrades
