The University of the West of England (UWE) campus site at Frenchay covers a large area, and is made up of multitude of buildings used for a variety of uses. This includes sports, science labs, studios, theatres, lecture rooms and a labyrinth of corridors and classrooms.
Lighting Services have been working with UWE for many years, using lighting technology to help them reach some key business objectives.

To free up more time for planned maintenance.

There have been many success stories for sustainable solutions at UWE, none more so than the on-going replacement of corridor lighting.
By using the Zumtobel Panos Infinity LED downlighters, to replace louvered fluorescent luminaires, savings of over 35% were instantly achieved.
In addition to this, PIR’s with integral photocells have been installed potentially saving a further 70% by occupancy detection, with another 30% saved by daylight detection dimming.
