Nottingham-based civil and electrical engineering firm McCann is adding to its growing portfolio of LED street lighting replacement projects with a new contract for North Lincolnshire.
McCann commenced work in October 2017 and is expecting to complete the project within 14 months – 10 months earlier than anticipated.
The works are centred on the town of Scunthorpe and the surrounding area and once completed, North Lincolnshire will benefit from the replacement and upgrade of 19,000 lanterns that include energy-saving LED technology. The installation of these lanterns will make a significant annual cost-saving for the Authority and due to the early completion, savings will be greater and sooner than originally anticipated.
Works include the upgrade of earthing and isolation points to bring them in line with current regulations, as well as TR22 inspections of concrete columns to assist with risk management and to prioritise any future replacement programmes.
This project comes hot on the heels of McCann’s successful installation and ongoing maintenance of lanterns across North East Lincolnshire, as well as other projects taking place in Calderdale, Hillingdon and Camden.
Mike Simpson, Group Manager for Transport Asset Management at North Lincolnshire Council, is delighted with the progress made so far and is looking forward to the long-term benefits that these new LED street lights will bring.
“At a time when other authorities are switching off street lights, we’re making the move to white-light LEDs because of their reduced energy consumption, saving us thousands of pounds a year and reducing our carbon footprint,”
He continued, “We’re really pleased with the quick turnaround on this project by the McCann team, and we’re hoping to bring the next phase forward and replace an additional 4,000 lanterns across the area.”
Speaking about the project in North Lincolnshire, McCann’s Contracts Manager Geoff Standley said, “As with any work we carry out, everything is conducted in a safe and efficient manner with the aim of providing a quality installation that requires minimal ongoing maintenance,”
“We have achieved this by the implementation of McCann’s accredited policies, procedures and training, supported by regular internal quality and safety audits. This ultimately guarantees the safe and high-quality delivery of the project for our Client.”
