Freehold Regional High School District Monmouth County, New Jersey
ChallengeIn New Jersey, the Freehold Regional High School District includes a group of six high schools in western Monmouth County. School district officials decided on a complete, district-wide LED retrofit to replace old, inefficient fluorescent and HID lighting. For two schools, Howell High School and Freehold Borough High School, the district also wanted to upgrade exterior lighting, including parking lot lighting.
With time and budget considerations imperative, the district knew it needed to partner with a reputable, reliable, and above all experienced lighting and electrical contractor for this big project. Freehold Regional High School District officials turned to FSG's New Jersey branch. FSG was awarded a contract to upgrade existing fluorescent and HID lighting in each of the schools to LED. This project included full LED retrofits of Howell High School and Freehold Borough High School.
SolutionThe project involved retrofitting almost 11,000 fixtures while working within the time constraints of the district's summer schedule. Additional coordination was required so that the lighting upgrade could be completed concurrently with other work being performed by other contractors.
The retrofit itself included the installation of new LED tubes, LED lamps (including A19, PAR, and PL), LED high bays, LED recessed fixtures, as well as LED floodlights, wall packs, and pole-mounted fixtures. In addition, over 600 dual technology occupancy sensors were installed in classrooms across the district.
ResultUpon project completion, Pat Lagravenis, Director of Buildings and Grounds for the school district, stated his satisfaction with FSG's ability to work with the district's tight schedule and expectations for cleanliness. FSG's level of professionalism and clear communication throughout the project were also singled out for specific praise. As the new school year began, campus teachers and staff members remarked on the "big difference" made by the upgraded lighting, and the project was met with rave reviews from all stakeholders.
