We could not be more thrilled to announce that we have recently been awarded as lead contractor for a project to deliver a total lighting overhaul to the City of Bristol College. As the principal contractor, REF will oversee a comprehensive lighting and lighting control replacement scheme at the college’s Skills site in Hengrove. This project aims to replace the majority of the existing lighting and lighting controls, reducing carbon emissions and helping the college achieve its Net Zero target. With approximately 2000+ light fittings to be replaced with highly efficient LED lighting, the team can’t wait to get started.

A Green Vision for the Future

The City of Bristol College is committed to environmental sustainability, and this project is a significant leap towards achieving their goals. By partnering with REF, the college will be taking significant steps to reduce its carbon footprint and improve energy efficiency. The replacement of conventional lighting systems with energy-efficient LED technology will have a profound impact on the college’s environmental impact while providing a better lighting experience for students and staff.

Efficiency and Environmental Benefits

LED lighting is known for its energy efficiency and longevity. By replacing the existing light fittings with highly efficient LED alternatives, REF will help the City of Bristol College significantly reduce energy consumption. LED lighting not only consumes less electricity but also has a longer lifespan, reducing maintenance costs and waste.

Enhanced Lighting Controls

REF’s expertise extends beyond lighting replacement to advanced lighting controls. Through the installation of cutting-edge lighting control systems, the college will have enhanced functionality and flexibility in managing its lighting infrastructure. Intelligent controls allow for precise monitoring, scheduling, and dimming of lights, ensuring optimal energy usage and creating a comfortable learning and working environment.

Meeting Challenges Head-On

Undertaking such an ambitious project within a challenging timeline requires expertise and a dedicated team. The REF team cannot wait to get started, leveraging their extensive experience, resources and commitment to sustainability to ensure the timely and successful completion of the project. Their commitment to delivering high-quality results, even under demanding circumstances, is a testament to their professionalism and expertise.
