    See your estate in a new light


    April, 2017

    Philips Lighting is delighted to be one of this year’s main sponsors for the AUDE (Association of University Directors of Estate) conference this month. 

    With the potential impact of Brexit on everyone’s mind and tuition fees and education contracts playing a growing role in the typical university’s income1, providing the best possible environment for learning and research remains a high priority to attract students and corporate investment and partnership.  

    The great news is that with recent advances in digitisation, lighting upgrades can now do so much more than simply deliver great energy savings.  Connected lighting systems, for example, can capture actionable insight to improve space planning and utilisation, enable other smart building applications and allow for desk level personalisation that helps improve mood and comfort3.

    While Capital expenditure reached a record high of £2.75 billion in 2016, there’s rarely enough funding to progress all identified investment projects, leaving many universities to look for creative ways to delivery more impact with the budgets they have available.

    This is where our managed services models can provide a valuable alternative to a Capital investment.  With lighting as a service model, for example, university directors can equip their estate with future proof lighting with a full OpEx based lighting system.  Without investment or hassle, but with an outcome based performance guarantee, this model allows estates directors to focus on other areas, while we take care of the lighting and deliver improved green credentials.
