University of Chester – LED Sports Lighting Project

Posted on May 21st, 2020

Chester University Estates Department

This site in Chester at the Parkgate Road Campus had the sports areas, a twin tennis court block, full size hockey pitch and a full size 3G pitch. The areas all had ageing 2 kilowatt metal halide luminaires which were becoming expensive to maintain with regular extensive repairs and spare parts becoming ever harder to source.

The project brief was a to offer a full turnkey design and installation service to retrofit LED lighting to the existing lighting columns.

After a competitive tender process we were selected to undertake the works to all three areas.
