We’re thrilled to share some illuminating news: Oatway Design Ltd is proud to be part of a groundbreaking project with Plymouth City Council! Together, we’ve successfully transitioned corporate buildings and car parks to energy-efficient LED lighting.

Key Impact:


      • Environmental Stewardship: By making the switch, we anticipate an annual reduction of 48 tonnes of carbon emissions – a journey equivalent to circling the earth 4.8 times (120,000 miles)!

      • Energy Efficiency: The estimated energy savings of 250,000 kWh per year not only contribute to a more sustainable future but also showcase the power of smart design.

    Financial Investment with a Clear Return:
    The entire project, with a total investment of £600k, is a testament to the council’s commitment to both fiscal responsibility and environmental consciousness. What’s even more impressive? The payback period is within the life expectancy of the LED fittings, making this a win-win for the community.

    Locations Benefitting from the Transformation:


        • Plymouth Life Centre (Sports Hall)

        • Prince Rock Depot (Warehouses, Yard)

        • Ballard House (4th Floor, Basement Car Park)

        • Council House (19x Rooms/Offices)

        • Chelson Meadow (8x Warehouses/Rooms/Offices)

        • Multistorey Car Parks

      At Oatway Design Ltd, our role was to prepare a sustainable lighting design and act as Technical Advisory to the client to ensure their ambitions were realised. We are proud to contribute to projects that redefine the future of our community. A huge shoutout to the Plymouth City Council for their visionary decision and commitment to a brighter and greener Plymouth!
