Chalmor Ltd installed an energy saving lighting solution into the main hall at Biddenham International School in Bedford.
We initially consulted with the school to determine the best solution to match their needs. Enhancing lighting performance and energy efficiency were top priority.
Endurance lighting and BlueWave occupancy sensors were installed, which reduced both the running and maintenance costs. The design also included a control system to enable stage and audience zoning and local overrides in the stage area for use during school productions.
In addition, modular T8 fittings in the drama hall were replaced with Ambiance T5 fittings and BlueWave controls. Light levels for this part of the project were particularly challenging as the ceiling and walls were painted black.
The project was scheduled to take place over a half term holiday to avoid disruption.
The result was a 50% reduction in electrical load and dramatically improved light levels.
Originally costing £3,379 per year, Chalmor’s solution reduced bills to just £372 per year – a saving of over £3,000 per year on energy bills.
