Eyemouth High School Sports Field Lighting

Client: Eyemouth High School
Project length: 3 day
Completion date: September 2022
HF divisions involved: Electrical

Brief project description: HF were called in to upgrade the existing floodlighting system for Eyemouth High School . The work required removing the existing pitch side floodlights which were old and inefficient, and replacing them with new energy efficient LED units.

As part of the lighting upgrade, we set up a lighting control system that allows the Schools ground manager to control the floodlights and activate them all or select each pitch lighting individually. This is a massive step forwards in energy conservation for the School as previously, all of the floodlights had to be turned on across the entire three pitch space, regardless of whether only one of the pitches was being used. The new system will allow them to save even more on their energy bills because of this feature.

There are many advantages for commercial, retail and industrial business sectors when upgrading to LED lighting from inefficient halogen and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL). These range from cost to the quality of light emitted and even the lifespan of the lights.

We were successfully able to complete the lighting upgrades in the specified time and with the increasing energy costs across the UK, the School will nwo benefit from more efficient lighting, with more customisation and reduced energy costs – just in time for the darker winter months ahead.

Project Challenges: Because the School pitches are under near constant use, our available access to the pitches to complete the upgrade work was limited. With the outdoor space is used throughout the day by the school as well as for after school hires meaning there were few available time slots to complete the work. At HF however, we have vast experience of working in live sites are were able to safely complete our work without hindering the usual day to day sports activities.
This was imperative for the School who stipulated that the pitches had to remain open and safe for use by their pupils.
