    Lighting firm Lyco has successfully helped to reduce energy consumption across the Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin estate by replacing all existing light bulbs with LED alternatives.

    The hotel group, which owns 31 hotels throughout the UK, needed a tailored solution for each of its sites to help combat its energy consumption.

    Lyco surveyed the sites and carried out analysis to ensure that the most appropriate lighting solutions were used for illuminating specific areas. Where necessary, bespoke components were sourced to complement the unique style of each hotel.

    “We were made aware from the outset that whatever lighting solutions we suggested needed to have no detrimental effect on the look or feel of the premises because the Hotel Du Vin Group has such a strong brand identity and its customer base have very definite expectations of their experience,” said Charles Barnett, MD of Lyco.

    “We’re delighted with the results both aesthetically and financially as the company has had the opportunity to refresh its lighting solution but with huge cost savings too.”

    As a result of the changes, the Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin Group hopes to see immediate energy consumption reductions.

    Following the conversion to LEDs, the company has witnessed energy savings of up to 90 per cent and carbon emissions reduced by 4.4000.

    Ray Begley, group maintenance manager at Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin Group, added: “For over ten years, the team at Lyco have helped us with our lighting needs in every way.

    “From helping us to easily convert our leading hotels to LEDs and then to quickly realise significant cost savings, through to providing technical guidance and support to our maintenance teams.”
