Most notably was Lupton Place, where we replaced a large quantity of existing old lighting for new LED lighting solutions.

Typically once the business has completed several key energy reduction changes within the business it will highlight and be further encouraged for the staff to look at the ways they can help reduce energy costs within the business.
