The Sustainable Development Commission

schoolTo ensure that secondary schools get the best possible learning environments, attractive and efficient for all the people who

use it, it is essential to appoint an experienced lighting engineer and installation contractor like us here at A Coole Electrical.

 

 

The Sustainable Development Commission estimates that schools contribute 2% of the UK’s overall carbon emissions, with around half

of this arising from the use of electricity and fossil fuels within school buildings.

 

It is important that we take action to reduce this.

 

The Government has allocated an additional investment of £110 million over the next three years to test the aim of reducing carbon

emissions by 60% in new schools built in the BSF programme.

 

To meet this aim it will be necessary to use the most energy-efficient lighting and to use lighting controls wherever there is a whole-life

cost justification for doing so.

 

 

One of 2013’s big projects

“The level of professionalism and care throughout the electrical

installation provided by A Coole Electrical during the shop fit of our new

Electrical branch in Grantham was exceptional. The attitude and care

shown by their team along with the communication to ensure that the fit

out wasn’t delayed enabled our branch to open a week early. I would

willingly recommend them for any further installations and thank them

for all their hard work and dedication whilst working on our branch.”
