BMI Healthcare is committed to reducing energy consumption across the business and earlier this year embarked on a programme to convert to LED lighting across all 74 sites. Working in partnership with Lyco Direct Limited, who have a proven track record in LED conversion and almost twenty years of experience in commercial lighting, the project has already produced impressive results. Half of BMI’s spend on lighting is now on LEDs and this is set to increase.
So what are the benefits of LED lighting? Primarily LED lights are far more energy efficient than conventional lights, saving up to 80% in energy costs. Each LED has an incredible lifespan of up to 50 times longer than a standard bulb, which greatly reduces maintenance costs. Hard-wearing, these LEDs also have low heat emissions, which therefore reduce fire risk. Putting all these factors together the result is a significant reduction in BMI’s carbon footprint.
To celebrate this successful partnership and the roll-out of the LED conversion programme, BMI and Lyco have introduced a staff purchase scheme enabling all BMI staff to purchase lighting for their home at a discounted rate direct from Lyco. A flyer giving further details of this promotion will be sent out to all staff via e-mail.
Charles Barnett, Managing Director of Lyco Direct Ltd said “We are delighted with the success of this project to date and look forward to working closely with BMI Healthcare to complete a full LED refurbishment programme.”
