Dudley Advance is a purpose-built teaching facility that forms part of the Dudley Learning Quarter. Spread across four floors and built at a cost of £9 million, it was designed with employers and learners in mind. Its specialist facilities were created by an Advisory board made up of leading employers from the engineering and manufacturing sector, so that the training delivered is what local employers need to upskill their workforce.
The single greatest consumer of energy within a school building is lighting. The college were seeking a solution to bring down its energy consumption and reduce the costs of running its specialist facility. Flick Lighting was invited to put forward a strategy to achieve the college’s goals.
Flick understood that providing LED lighting to reduce loads was key, however they recognised that due to the low burning hours, savings can be limited. Put simply, lighting that is switched off requires no energy. Flick installed lighting controls, specifically in areas that are underutilised. This ensured that Dudley College only used energy when required and therefore, didn’t waste any.
Flick Lighting used a variety of products from our Recessed, Downlighters and Surface range. Check out the products we used below.
