Mitie will manage your lighting

Mitie has launched a planned lighting maintenance service, Lighting In Future Environments (LIFE)

LIFE launched this month at Vinopolis, London

The energy services company will take on the long-term management of a lighting estate for a fixed term, and says it can offer guarantees about running costs, maintenance and energy savings. LIFE will use manufacturers that Mitie believes can offer affordable, reliable products.

LIFE covers all aspects of lighting, including design, installation, energy supply and technical upgrades. For example, Mitie will update LED chips in luminaires to more efficient versions when they become available. Kerry Sheehan, national mobile services director, said: ‘We’re forcing manufacturers to push ahead and develop advanced parts, so it’s not the whole system that has to be replaced.’
