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.
