University Property Campus Services (PCS) has installed new LED lights in the Beaurepaire Centre, improving the quality of light and reducing energy expenditure at the same time.
The upgrade was made as the old lighting fixtures in the gym were nearing the end of their life, which meant that lighting the gym was consuming too much energy and requiring too much maintenance to be sustainable.
The Beaurepaire Centre’s old lights in the pool, ground and first floor were replaced with LED lights that consume 50% less energy and require little to no maintenance for the first five years of use, improving the long term sustainability of the gym. Approximately 30 tonnes of carbon will be saved over 300 days.
“Delivering these outcomes is important for PCS, and we were very happy to help MU Sport move towards more sustainable practices”, said Harry Troedel, PCS Sustainability Implementation Manager. “The time was ideal to install lights that would cut down on energy usage and minimise maintenance cost”.
MU Sport also thanks Nuvo Group and Storelight, who were crucial in trialing different options before arriving at the final product. Click here
