With the increased usage of LED lanterns and further advances in lantern technology, there is a continually reducing requirement for traditional road lighting maintenance. As you would imagine LED lanterns don’t have lamps that need replacing and new types of optic / glass etc. mean that there is less need for cleaning than before.
However this said, due to the long lifespans of LED lanterns, there is still a need for cleaning (particularly in built-up areas) and there will always be a requirement for routine testing and inspection whatever type of lantern is used. Furthermore, as long as there are drivers on the roads and vandals on our streets there will always be the need for reactive lighting maintenance as and when damage occurs.
R&M Lighting has significant experience in the testing and maintenance of street lighting, we have run and managed lighting maintenance contracts from small private housing estates like The Chase in Maidenhead to the multi-million pound Westminster CC term lighting maintenance project which we ran on behalf of Westminster Transerve for 3 years.
During our time on this contract, we maintained the highest lighting levels they had ever achieved, something which has still not been beaten to this day.
As an experienced lighting maintenance contractor we understand the importance of meeting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and work with our clients to build the most time efficient and cost effective programme of works we can to meet their specific needs on every lighting maintenance project that we undertake.
Past lighting maintenance project spends have ranged from £2000 – £2,000,000 per annum and include the following contracts to name but a few;
- The Westminster CC Term Contract (Routine and Reactive Maintenance)
- Hammersmith & Fulham (Routine and Reactive Maintenance)
