PROJECT FOCUS

The classroom lights set their brightness levels automatically and continue to operate until there is enough natural daylight or no occupancy

LET THERE BE LIGHT! Thanks to a lighting installation from B.E.G., a new London school is top of the class for energy efficiency and learning. ECN looks at how the project unfolded and details each of the benefits the school is enjoying.

L

ighting controls specialist B.E.G. has enabled a brand new London school to achieve its energy efficiency ambitions and provide an enhanced learning environment for its pupils. John Keats Primary Free School opened to reception pupils in September 2018 and occupies the first two floors of a new residential development in South Bermondsey, London. It will eventually cater

for 420 pupils, up to year six. B.E.G. was selected to supply the presence and motion sensors for the school, as the products offer the dual benefits of complete lighting flexibility to ensure that the building is fully energy efficient, while helping to create an excellent learning environment. The new school has high ambitions for its pupils and, with the building designed with education in mind, the lighting had to be designed and controlled in a way that would maximise the pupils’ comfort, concentration and alertness.
