The Walnuts School is a community residential special school and Children’s Home. All 175 pupils are on the autistic spectrum or have social communication difficulties as such the learning environment is vitally important. INECO Energy designed a lighting solution which delivered light quality of different colour temperatures for the specific environment to assist with classroom concentration and relaxation in social areas.
The whole process from survey/design, installation to completion was totally professional and stress free. The installation team were extremely accommodating and friendly, listening to us and working around the special needs of our school. Our light levels have greatly improved and we are seeing the benefits in energy and maintenance cost savings.
