EMCOR UK completes project to install energy efficient lighting in Bird Gallery at a UK museum
Published: 22 May 2015 - Marianne Evans
EMCOR UK has been awarded, and completed, a project at a UK museum, visitor attraction and science research centre in South Kensington, London, to remove an old lighting system and install a new, energy efficient LED track lighting system in the Bird Gallery.
Since 2001, EMCOR UK has been providing specialist facilities management services for the museum, at its visitor facilities in South Kensington and Tring, and storage sites in South London. Throughout this time, the scope of EMCOR UK’s responsibilities has evolved and developed considerably to meet the museum’s changing requirements. Removing the old lighting and upgrading with a new energy efficient lighting system in the Bird Gallery required EMCOR UK to manoeuver within a Grade 1 listed heritage facility, and work to a short timeframe and a reasonable budget. This involved ensuring that sufficient light was available throughout the project, as the exhibit was open to the public for the entirety of the project.
David Parker, group executive director, EMCOR UK, said, “This was a fascinating project! EMCOR UK’s key account management programme and collaborative approach has enabled us to be completely flexible to the evolving needs of the museum, since 2001. EMCOR UK is very proud to have been selected by the museum to assist them in becoming more energy efficient as a result of the new LED track lighting system, whilst protecting the delicate surroundings of the Bird Gallery. This is an excellent example of how our highly skilled and passionate team continually applies methods that reduce costs and improves services within a customer’s environment”.
