Commercial School Lighting Upgrade | Chelmsford | Essex | CM1

Leigh Electrical Contractors have been offering lighting upgrades at various schools throughout the Essex area for over 20 years. Changing the lights to LED fittings not only makes the school feel more modern, but also can save the school a substantial amount of money as the new LED fittings use a fraction on the power that the old florescent lights.

We were asked by a secondary school in Chelmsford which wanted to carry out a full lighting upgrade, as the school was large the job would need to be chopped up into phases.

The school wanted to start the work in the Easter holidays and carry the work through into the summer holidays, the whole school was being refurbished at the same time.

Leigh Electrical Contractors have years of experience in  working in schools carrying out lighting upgrades, we have significant experience in performing works within educational facilities and understand the unique requirements and issues that these projects can present.

Some of the areas of the schools required working at heights from a scissor lifts or mobile towers such as the sports hall and library all of our electricians have working at height experience and all the relevant qualifications to operate the machinery or build the towers.

A common issue that arises when carrying out lighting upgrades is usually the age of the wiring, Leigh Electrical Contractors are always prepared for such eventualities and can make on the spot repairs or book in more serious wiring repairs.

Leigh Electrical Contractors are used to working within the constraints of the school holidays and always work to a strict work schedule so that deadlines aren’t missed and there is no disruption in learning.
