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.
