The ability to use a sports facility for the maximum period each day is often so fundamental to its commercial and social practicality, that any shortfall in availability, can be critical to its future viability and sustainability.

Floodlighting is often at the very core of this issue, and given its technical complexity, it demands specialist technical input and guidance in design, installation and maintenance.

Our Project Managers lead an expert team who can advise you throughout the process of commissioning floodlighting for your sports or infrastructure project. This includes putting the benefits and disadvantages of Metal Halide versus LED systems in the context of project and business plans.
