Inspire Partnership Trust- LED Lighting Programme

  • Client: Inspire Partnership Trust
  • Location: 6 sites across South East England
  • Sector: Education
  • Services: Project Management, Energy & Sustainability, Contract Management


Inspire Partnership Trust who, like many, was feeling the pressure from energy tariff increases. Inspire Partnership strategically ventured towards energy saving solutions to reduce their annual electricity consumption across 6 sites.

The Brief

Barker’s reputation for successfully delivering innovative lighting solutions to lower costs and reduce the impact on the environment, led to their appointment on the project. Barker’s approach was to identify opportunities for energy savings tailored to the Trust’s needs.

LED lighting systems offer fast return on investment. The longevity of LED lights significantly reduce the need for frequent maintenance, resulting in long-term cost savings and improved energy efficiency.

Barker procured the programme through a framework to obtain cost-competitive rates, ensuring the selected supplier met the quality criteria required.

When on site, Barker meticulously undertook contract administration duties to carefully manage contractor activities, subsequently resulting in successful project delivery.

The Outcome

Barker and the contractor, Energys Group delivered 6 LED projects within the client’s 6 week programme deadline. The client opted for overnight working, which facilitated term time working, with the school day operating as normal.

Lighting quality throughout the schools were significantly improved, reducing maintenance costs across its facilities and providing a comfortable, more productive learning environment for students and teachers.



Client Testimonal

“Barker made this project really simple to undertake and the we are delighted with the results improving the lighting and feel of the school environment. Both Barker and the contractor remained schools focussed throughout the entire project cycle from feasibility to installation, working around the school day to minimise disruption whilst still getting the job done efficiently and effectively.”
