Energys Group won a competitive tender, worth over £1.7million, to manufacture, supply and install LED lighting to 12 Academies for two Academy Trusts.

The Ormiston Academies Trust and Brooke Weston Trust are sponsors of primary and secondary academies. As educational trusts, their aims are for all young people to have access to the highest academic, social and practical skills required to achieve their full potential, whether going on to study at a leading university or entering the world of work.

The opportunity

We were first made aware of the school place crisis we were going to encounter back in 2009/2010. On the back of this, strategic plans were put in place in terms of school extensions, new builds, academies and free schools. So where are we now?

It is said that the standard of the education is down to the teacher’s skills and somewhat of the individual; others will place more emphasis on the resources of the school. But what about the building itself? The sound of commuter traffic from the outside drifts in, voices in the hallway can be heard as people walk to class, a draft from the windows sweep in - not a comfortable environment to learn in, let alone to concentrate. Secondary glazing can help combat all of these problems and can also improve a building’s energy efficiency and increase window security.

Figuring out how to work with less space, time and cost? The Qube is your best formula.

We have hit the nail on the head when it comes to creating truly bespoke modular buildings. We’re unique in that we insist on using the highest quality materials, combined with the latest innovative design and Eco-smart features.
