City of York LED Lantern Replacement

Share on

Bouygues Energies & Services completed an extensive lighting project in the historic City of York to help reduce energy and make significant cost savings. 

£200,000 

savings in energy costs per year

Our Solution

A large number of LED lanterns were supplied and installed, replacing the old technology of SOX/SON lanterns. The fully managed, detailed programme required the works to be completed to specific timescales/deadlines in order to achieve the desired energy reductions.

The replacement lanterns raised the levels of lighting on existing highways to current standards under BS5489 2013 as well as offering the option of variable levels (power reduction post-midnight).

Our solution brought together strategic programming, smart logistics and a dedicated mobile workforce. Installation crews were managed by mobile supervisors in welfare/office vehicles.

We supplied the labour, plant and materials to provide a fully managed LED lantern conversion programme.

In addition to factory acceptance tests, we introduced a site acceptance test scheme to ensure that all lanterns were supplied and delivered safely to specification. 

Client Benefits

Demanding timescales were met and we delivered improved efficiency ahead of schedule

This was despite site difficulties such as narrow streets and traffic sensitive areas. 

Throughout the programme Bouygues Energies & Services managed any issues on behalf of the council

This included complaints by residents or problems with intrusive light - we endeavoured to keep such disruption to a minimum. 

The LED conversions will save the City of York Council £200,000 a year in energy

The project will also reduce maintenance costs and maintain a high quality of lighting for residents.

Kent County Council Energy Saving Scheme

Share on

In 2016, Bouygues Energies & Services partnered with Kent County Council to reduce street lighting energy consumption in order to meet the challenge of rising energy prices. To achieve this Kent County Council aimed to convert all of its current street lights to Light Emitting Diode (LED) products.

£4m

energy savings

120,000

new street lighting units

Mike Whiting, Kent County Coucillor: "The decision to work with Bouygues E&S was based on the experience of their previous successful projects and our confidence that they had the right abilities to complete the project to an exemplary standard, while also addressing environmental challenges"

The overall aim of this project is to reduce energy consumption by at least 60% whilst maintaining lighting standards in accordance with BS5489: 2015. The project work, to install LED lanterns, started in March 2016 and will be delivered in three phases:

  1. In the first 14 months, 75,000 residential lights will be changed
  2. Over 24 months, approximately 45,000 major road and town centre street lights will be changed
  3. Ongoing maintenance of the assets for the duration of the contract

Our Solution

Bouygues Energies & Service designed an award winning project delivery plan which brought together strategic programming, smart logistics and a dedicated mobile workforce.

We delivered an energy focused design solution and guaranteed Kent County Council more than 65% in energy savings. This drove down their costs and increased their overall efficiency.

To ensure ease of monitoring, we have chosen a proven, reliable system which meets all of Kent County Council’s needs and has the in-built ability to offer future “Smart City” capabilities. Providing 100% connectivity for all street lights, all the newly installed units are linked to a central management system (CMS) which will allow Kent County Council to manage and adapt lighting levels as required.

Installation crews are managed by supervisors based in mobile welfare/office vehicles. This ensures safety, productivity and quality, and gives us better control of operations with supervisors based close to the works.

Client Benefits

Whilst still in the early stages of this contract, Kent County Council have experienced numerous benefits through its partnership with Bouygues Energies & Services.

The Local Authority's investment is guaranteed

This is a result of the underwriting of energy and maintenance savings.

The smart logistics approach has enabled an accelerated programme option

Part of our winning strategy was designing an accelerated delivery programme for the LED conversion. By delivering this scheme in 25 months instead of 38 months, additional savings of £4m will be generated.

Average savings of £4m a year

The Council saves money and reduces its carbon footprint by lowering energy usage. Our LED conversion guaranteed saving 65.7 % of Kent’s street lighting energy thereby reducing the carbon footprint.

Maintenance costs will be reduced

We offered KCC an annual lump sum maintenance package - saving Kent County Council an estimated £1.6 million over 15 years and transfers the risk of any increased maintenance costs over the life of the contract to Bouygues.

Cutting Edge Facility for the Welsh School of Pharmacy

Share on

The Welsh School of Pharmacy was established in 1919 as part of Cardiff University; one of Britain’s leading teaching and research universities. In order to continue their progress in scientific development, the Welsh School of Pharmacy required the construction of a cGMP pharmacy suite which would include a cleanroom validated to EU GMP grade B to D classification.

EU GMP grade classification

months fast track project

Client's Requirement

This new facility will help the school, not only to advance their teaching methods in the field, but also to replicate the manufacturing standards, processes and protocols expected in the pharmaceutical and life science sectors; enabling their students to better understand and appreciate regulatory requirements before they leave university.  

The intended educational purpose of the facility also required that the two areas – sterile and non-sterile – would accommodate up to 12 students at any one time.

Our Solution

Bouygues Energies & Services’ turnkey Design & Build solution included the stripping out and removal of an old optometry unit, in order to construct a new, fully-functioning unit which met the client’s specific requirements for use as a teaching facility.

The completed unit is capable of providing small-scale cytotoxic manufacturing support, as well as offering a high quality teaching environment, where both sterile and non-sterile areas are regulated to EU GMP grade B to D cleanroom classification.

The installation of temperature, humidity, filtration and pressure cascades were as per the stringent requirements for this type of facility, and were designed to be stand-alone from the central university services, increasing the reliability of the facility’s provisions.

Although the pharmacy suite was not required to be MHRA approved, we ensured that our commissioning and validation of the facility followed the key steps necessary to enable future regulatory approval, if required.

In order for the unit to be ready for the new term, our teams also had to undertake special considerations and planning; commencing the project during term time and arranging their work around end-of-year exams.

Client Benefits

A Single Point of Contact to Boost Performance
Providing detailed design, architectural, procurement, construction, installation, process engineering, mechanical & electrical services, commissioning and validation to offer seamless engineering solutions to the challenges facing our client.

Cutting Edge Facilities
A state-of-the-art and one-of-a-kind teaching facility in Wales, with the added value of small scale production capabilities if required.

Minimal Teaching Downtime
By considering the impact of works during the summer exam period, we were able to meet the new term deadline with minimal disruption to student’s end-of-year studies and minimal teaching downtime for the School of Pharmacy.

Future-proofed Delivery
The quality of our commissioning and validation will enable the Welsh School of Pharmacy to access MHRA approval for their facility in the future, if they wish to do so.

Increased Reliability Through Self Sufficiency
Equipment responsible for the environmental parameters of the facility were designed to run independently, negating any reliance on central university services.
