Premium Lighting Solutions (PLS) to install LEDs into two wards and the nurses’ living quarters. Fitting this new light system in a busy hospital was a logistical nightmare due to the fact that the areas could not be closed while the work was completed. Premium Lighting Solutions completed this job with the minimum of disruption to the hospital allowing the staff to go about their jobs freely.
