St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School was built in the 1920’s and has been extended and improved over a number of years. The strategic aims of the school are based on having an environment that is fit for purpose and efficient for current and future use. St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School found that large cost savings could be made by replacing all of their existing lighting with modern, energy efficient LED lighting with the capital funding to be provided through a SALIX loan.
Energy Efficiency Project - building blocks for a sustainable future generation.
St Patrick’s wished to appoint WN1 Sustainability as their provider for the work through Bloom Procurement on a direct award basis. WN1 first started by carrying out a free lighting audit of the St Patrick’s complex and produced a design for the new lighting requirements.
