Duration: 3 Months
Role: Project Management
System / Service: LED Lighting; BMS & Controls
ETS was appointed by Homebase to project manage Phase 1 of the LED lighting upgrade for 79 stores across the UK and Ireland. The stores selected were identified as ‘Priority 1’ – sites with lighting failures.
This challenging programme of works was undertaken in a single phase, with each store on average being completed within 5 nights. In addition to the lighting upgrades, we provided ad-hoc M&E services and adapted the programme of works to include additional stores.
Shortly after the project commenced, the programme of works was escalated to ensure all stores were completed within 3 months instead of 5.
Early stakeholder engagement was essential to ensuring works were completed on time without impacting on trade. Working collaboratively with client representatives, Contractors, Suppliers and Store Managers allowed us to work flexibly to meet project critical deadlines.
Added Value / Achievements
Our team of Data Analysts worked with the wider team to ensure the project deliverables were met. Collating energy data and monitoring performance at the various stages of the project lifecycle, our Technical Energy Centre calculated and identified energy savings delivered against each store which were presented to the client. Additional cost control measures ensured the project remained within budget and achieved a cost reduction of £0.5m.
