Verulam School

BACKGROUND

Verulam School is a state secondary school for boys with academy status in Hertfordshire, UK. It is a smaller than average senior school built in the late 1930’s and on a whole is fairly modern. They decided to undergo various renovations to maintain the modern feel of the school; one being installing energy efficient LED lighting.

SOLUTION

Verulam was awarded funding, provided by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered by Salix Finance. This allowed us to install over 875 new LED lights for the school which primarily consisted of recessed modular panels, batten luminaires and surface fittings with additional emergency features.
