The Bluecoat in Liverpool – LED Lighting System Upgrade

Wells Electrical extensively improved lighting solutions for The Bluecoat, Liverpool’s contemporary arts centre

The Grade 1 listed building, which provides an award-winning programme for families, received upgraded LED lighting systems. As part of this important and necessary work, we also installed lighting controls for various common areas, office and bathroom facilities.

The LED lighting upgrade project

Our refit for The Bluecoat features PIR (passive infrared sensor) and lighting controls. We utilised Dextra ASD and ERCO products, ensuring the quality of the installation. 

We worked carefully and considerately around the staff and occupants of the premises, and in conjunction with other contractors that were carrying out another phase of building work. This allowed the building, as a vital resource, to avoid disrupting its services.

Further installations of metering were required, allowing better control of power usage to units, as well as data collection for billing. The metering works were in conjunction with Autometers.

How this upgrade benefited our client

With support from EU Arts Funding, Wells were able to provide lighting that would not only save energy for the building, but permit more control over energy use, creating a space that is both functional and economical. 

Ernest Griffiths, who designed the project, said “It was a pleasure to provide The Bluecoat with lighting that supported their mission to provide their community with access to the arts. Our team worked diligently, were able to provide snagging support quickly with a re-visit, and now The Bluecoat can enjoy their upgraded lighting solutions for years to come.”

What our client says about the project

Sue Baker, manager at The Bluecoat said: “Wells Electrical allowed us to keep working with the community as they undertook vital work for us, benefitting the people of Liverpool and beyond who enjoy our services. We greatly appreciate their willingness to accommodate our purpose, and the speed at which they resolved the minor issues that came up during the installation.”

Wells Electrical is delighted to report that The Bluecoat, and their mission, are now illuminated once again.

Show Business Interiors Ltd Crewe - LED Replacement and Design

We pride ourselves on achieving a 100% on-time and budget completion rate. We achieve this due to our very experienced project team. 

Evidencing this, following a recommendation by KGA UK Ltd, we were approached by Show Business Interiors, who are a new client. We had previously successfully worked with KGA UK Ltd on an £250,000.00 lighting replacement scheme.

The LED Replacement and Design project

We were tasked with designing and implementing a new scheme as Show Business Interiors were dissatisfied with the works that had been completed by another contractor.

We selected LDL Lighting Ltd for supply and design based on their excellent reputation for innovation and design. Our Contracts Manager spent time working with LDL Lighting to allow us to provide Show Business Interiors with several design options and budgets. Show Business Interiors selected a new lighting track system.

Re lamp works

We had two engineers on site for the duration of the project. They ensured that each area of the office they were working in was completed, left tidy and fully functional after each night shift.

All old lamps were disposed of in lamp coffins and rubbish removed from the site. All disposals complied with Environmental legislation.

How this upgrade benefited our client

Ensuring Health and Safety

The works were carried out on night shifts in accordance with current HSE legislation and the clients’ Health and Safety policies. Risk Assessments and Method Statements were supplied to the client in advance of works commencing with copies being stored on site.

Works being carried out at night meant that Health and Safety issues were mitigated as the office was fully functional during their normal business hours.

What our client says about the project

During the project there were no issues raised by the customer regarding the works carried out overnight. As a business, they were able to continue in their day to day activities as normal.

The customer was extremely satisfied with the new lighting system we installed.
