During 2013 P&S Electrical (South East) Ltd were appointed by Hastings Business Operations as the main contractor covering both planned and reactive electrical and mechanical maintenance at their two sites within the town, The Innovation Centre and the Creative Media Centre.
Annual maintenance schedules were created to ensure that all aspects of the building and plant were serviced and maintained in
accordance to both Health & Safety Policy and local company working procedures and practices.
Once these schedules were in place their focus turned to generating savings for each of the sites. Our goal was to promote efficient energy usage and reduce waste within the electrical and heating systems.
A number of projects have been identified, including the installation of photovoltaic panels, air ventilation heat recovery systems and the installation of intelligent lighting systems.
The first project, which commenced in November 2013, related to the installation of LED lighting. This initial project has seen the replacement and reduction of communal lighting within the Innovation Centre.
Early indications are that this stage of the project will generate savings of over 40% translating to a saving in real terms of over £2000 per year.
This project will be extended during 2014 and 2015 to include the office areas adding an estimated £5000 worth of savings per annum for the Innovation Centre.
