Highgate School

Independent sector Highgate School in North London, has refurbished the Grade II listed Victorian Gothic ’Big School’ and Chapel. A striking perimeter gallery is lit by B–Line/LED which achieves a front–running 80 lumens/watt.

THE LED option was chosen over Fluorescent after Aktiva’s ’Cost And Compare’ exercise demonstrated that the 50%+ energy cost savings paid back the additional investment within 7 years and saved an additional £5,136 over the initial 13 year phase of the fittings’ life.

Moreover the B–Line/LED system offers LED module replacements further extending cost benefits and life of the lighting for virtually endless 13 year cycles.

Specified by Luke Hughes & Co. and Clague Architects.
