Hull College is one of the largest establishments of its type in the UK with sites in Queen’s Gardens, Cannon Street and the KC Stadium as well as in Goole, Harrogate and community locations around Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. All of the colleges form part of the Hull College Group and have over 25,000 students across its campuses.
Chelt Electrical in Hull have recently installed over 600 Edgelit LED LuxPanel luminaires from Luceco throughout the College, the programme being funded by the Salix scheme. Established in 2004, Salix Finance Ltd delivers 100% interest-free capital to the public sector to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon emissions with loans for energy efficiency projects.
High efficiency, energy saving LuxPanels from Luceco met the criteria for the Salix scheme. Quick and easy to install into exposed grid ceilings, the luminaires deliver up to 50,000 hours’ life with no maintenance requirements. Supplied with remote ‘plug and play’ drivers, LuxPanels are available in standard fixed output, dimmable and emergency options. The luminaires were installed in classrooms, circulation areas and corridors, lecture suites and relaxation areas as well as specialist facilities such as beauty and hairdressing salons.
Hull College offers courses at all levels with curriculum designed in partnership with local employers, ensuring that students have the best possible chance to succeed and progress into work. With an improved lit environment, energy savings and reduced maintenance, the lighting refurbishment has also proved to be a success.
