The Challenge

The existing lighting at Kate Daniels House comprised of 5’ Twin Fluorescent lights which were coming to the end of their serviceable life. Tendring District Council were incurring increasing maintenance costs on call out charges to keep the lights in service. New external lighting was also required. Being a sheltered scheme, there were additional challenges around safeguarding and access.

The Solution

DSA Electrical worked with the Council to install a new lighting scheme using Ansel LED 600 x 600 LED lay in panels. We worked with the Council’s property team to install a suspended ceiling which facilitated the new lighting installation and introduced Passive Infrared sensors to ensure the new lighting only comes on when an area is in use.

Our engineers are DBS checked, trained in equality and diversity and highly experienced in working in occupied properties with vulnerable residents. Our resident liaison team are trained in customer service management and worked closely with the Scheme Co-ordinator to ensure residents were kept fully informed of the works being undertaken.
