LED specialist FortisDay is the preferred supplier to AMR Consult, to ensure more schools can benefit from maximum energy savings and guarantee the most technologically advanced lighting for educational facilities.
UK-wide specialist services firm, AMR Consult works with clients offering a broad range of technical advice and project and programme management services.
With education being an important sector to help improve learning environments across the UK, AMR Consult sourced FortisDay, whose SmartiLumin range of recessed luminaires offers as close to natural daylight as possible, to ensure schools gain maximum benefit from upgrading to LED lighting.
Says Ben McCarthy, Director at AMR Consult: “Schools are under immense pressure to make savings, without compromising the comfort of staff and students. In many cases, we can demonstrate how implementing simple energy saving measures actually improves conditions, and saves money.
“Lighting is one great example. Essential for an effective teaching and learning environment, it accounts for approximately 50% of the total school’s electricity bill. We can help schools get the right funding to make the switch to LED lighting and carefully plan the works, using the right quality technology as FortisDay presents, to have maximum impact.”
FortisDay SmartiLumin best in-class features include a *colour render index (CRI) of 93 light output and efficiencies of greater than 181 lumens per circuit watt, representing 30% less energy usage than what is currently available on the market.
When combined with an intelligent (automated) lighting system utilising daylight harvesting and occupancy sensors, the energy savings made with FortisDay’s solution overall has been third party tested to be up to 80% more than traditional fluorescents.
Says Robin Day, Chief Technical Officer at FortisDay: “The right ‘purpose designed’ LED technology, is what makes the real difference for any school and presents the real saving opportunities.
“We are working closely with AMR Consult on an on-going basis to support improvement works for schools, and showcase how carefully planned works improves programmes can improve not only learning environments for staff and pupils but also resource savings for estate managers and caretakers.”
