The University of Southampton has cut its energy bills by up to 20% at its Avenue campus by switching to energy efficient LED luminaires from Concord.
University of Southampton
As part of the Feilo Sylvania company, Concord has provided a bespoke lighting solution featuring a range of energy efficient, high performance luminaires, suited for the University’s varied requirements.
The University of Southampton’s Avenue campus is a former sixth form college, which was purchased by the University in the early 1990’s. At the time, it was substantially altered to suit the University’s needs. The interior décor and lighting installed in the 1990’s was deteriorating so a number of refurbishment projects have been undertaken recently to improve and refresh the
campus. A range of Concord LED luminaires with occupancy detection sensors have been installed at the campus as part of the
refurbishment, dramatically improving the building’s lighting scheme and increasing energy efficiency. The Avenue campus has a mixture of two and three storey buildings, requiring substantial lighting throughout. The work included creating a new lighting scheme in the circulation spaces, lecture theatres as well as additional work at the library on campus.
