The Bewdley School, in Worcestershire is a Secondary School with a separate Sixth Form. Nestling next to the banks of the Severn, the school has extensive grounds; many of the buildings have been recently updated, including the Gallery, Sixth Form Café and ‘state of the art’ Science Block. The Bewdley school pride themselves on being well maintained and chose Flick Lighting to help them upkeep their high standards.
As some parts of the school were built in the 50’s, most of the lighting fixtures were outdated fluorescent lamps that consume a high amount of energy. The Site Team ‘didn’t realise how much maintenance lighting could be’ and found they were spending a vast amount of time and money maintaining the old lighting, when in fact, it may be cheaper and more convenient to change the fixtures altogether. The school were also looking to upgrade to LEDs to produce a more inviting learning environment for students, in the hope of modernising the look of the school.
The Bewdley School project involved various spaces including hallways, lecture rooms, classrooms, lifts, science labs, water closets and offices. In total, 806 new lighting fixtures were fitted on the property. This included a wide range of fixtures suitable for the different areas such as lowbays, downlighters, panels and linear fixtures.
