About the client

Moat Community College is a Local Authority secondary school in Highfields, near the city centre of Leicester, catering for over 1,000 children aged 11-16.

Drivers for the project

The school has over 1,000 students and has outdated lighting that is becoming increasingly expensive to operate and maintain, with extended services available the school operates evenings and weekends therefore the requirement for energy is increased beyond school hours. As with most schools the budgets are decreasing and the need to reduce costs are important. In addition the school is committed to looking for ways to improve the educational environment.


CIS designed and specified a range of diverse market leading replacement, lighting solutions for the college covering class rooms to climbing walls, as well as achieving over 60% reduction in energy costs. The new lighting will deliver a much improved educational environment with non-flicker day light colour render to remove headaches from old fluorescent and tungsten lighting and greatly decreased maintenance with a warrantied new for old policy on fittings for 5 years.


The project was delivered on budget and on time thanks to the close working relationship with the team at Moat Community College. The LED Lighting was installed over 3 weeks during the summer holidays 2020 ensuring no disruption to the School during Term Time. Some adtional lighting will now be upgraded in the October HalfTerm.

Project Summary






Installing LED lighting throughout our school is a positive step towards our commitment to not only improving the energy performance of our building but educating our students by raising awareness of how we can all help the environment.

Since installing the lights, both staff and students have benefited from higher quality, brighter, and more reliable lighting and the overall school is a much brighter building. This has led to an improved working environment.

The installation has made a positive reduction in our carbon footprint and as a bonus we are predicting a substantial reduction in our electricity costs and a further reduction in our ongoing maintenance costs.

Climate Integrated Solutions Limited provided an exceptional service, from the initial enquiry to the fast installation, throughout communication has been exceptional. Climate Solutions have been a pleasure to work with on this project, nothing has been too much trouble, I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
