FCC Primary School & Office LED Lighting Upgrades

In 2018 we were awarded a contract by Flintshire County Council to carryout LED Lighting Upgrades at eight primary schools across the county. We appointed a Project Manager a team of four operatives, led by a senior electrician. Our Project Manager produced a detailed programme of works a held weekly progress meetings to ensure targets were being met. We completed six of the upgrades in the Summer Holidays of 2018, another in October half term and the final school in February half term 2019. The project was delivered within the timeframe given by the client and within budget.

In the October and November of 2018, due to our ongoing work within the schools, we were asked to complete an upgrade at the County Council’s new office building, Ty Dewi. We were tasked with upgrading 1200 lights in six weeks. There were six main areas in the building which would be occupied by office staff in addition to common areas such as toilets, corridors etc. Due to the short timeframe, we assigned two teams; each made up of one supervisor, three electricians and an apprentice as well as a member of staff looking after stock control and waste management. Each of the teams were assigned three of the main areas to change the lights in with a targeted number of lights to achieve each week. Our Project Manager monitored progress on a daily basis and reported back to the customer each week. The contract was once again delivered on time and within budget.

‘I am writing to recommend the work of Mega Electrical as an electrical contractor, having recently contracted them to complete LED Lighting projects at both council offices and educational establighments. Mega have always carried out works in a timely manner and the conduct of their employees has been excellent and has allowed for the projects to be completed competently and most importantly, as a public body, within cost. They always seek to work to the relevant standards and meet any demands made of them by site managers/building occupiers. In closing, based on their performance on the aforementioned projects, the Energy Conservation Unit would have no qualms in appointing them for future works.’

“During the summer holidays 2018, both Gwernymynydd and Ysgol y Waun schools benefitted from an upgrade to LED lighting across the school. This work was carried out by ‘Mega Electrical’. There was a site meeting prior to the work starting, information was clearly shared and all relevant paperwork and processes agreed. During the work, all contractors maintained the school building ​well, had a clear structure to their work and kept the building tidy. On returning to school after the summer break the work was all completed to a high standard.”
