McElwain Building (24A) lighting retrofit works

14 Sep 2018

A contractor will be replacing T8 and T5 fluorescent fittings in the McElwain Building (24A) with more energy efficient LED ones. A previous survey has identified the location of suitable fittings and only these will be affected by the project.

The new LED lamps will provide a slightly greater light output than the original fluorescent fittings.  Overall, the retrofit project will mean better lighting and less energy use.

The work involves visiting every room where suitable fittings have been previously identified, installing an LED retrofit kit and carrying out any maintenance required. It is not feasible to give each individual occupant an indication of the time the electrician will arrive. If the contractor arrives at an inopportune time, please suggest a later time when they can return to complete the task.
