Catcote Academy in Hartlepool kept it local when overhauling its lighting and electrical schemes.
The specialist business and enterprise college appointed C & A Pumps and Engineering to brighten up its classrooms and corridors. C & A installed all of the new electrical and lighting equipment at the academy, using energy efficient lighting and sensor controls provided by Durable Technologies. Both businesses are located in Hartlepool.
Catcote Academy has more than 100 learners with moderate, severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties and has a clear commitment to sustainability. It is estimated the energy efficient sensor lighting scheme will cut lighting bills by up to a half.
Mick Slimmings, premises manager at Catcote Academy, said, 'We are very much geared towards the green way of doing things whether that is reducing our energy consumption, recycling waste or sourcing quality local suppliers.
'C & A Pumps and Durable Technologies have fantastic reputations and we were delighted to work with them to complete the new lighting project.'
