Pets at Home give Green Light for LED Retrofit

As part of their continuous drive to reduce their carbon footprint Pets at Home embarked upon a LED retrofit to the signage across their entire estate.

Cygnia have been providing signage maintenance services to Pets at Home since 2009. On the back of a strong working relationship Pets at Home and Cygnia started exploring the LED retrofit programme together in early 2016.

“Having put together the business case, the decision to go ahead with the programme was easy to make, as well as the environmental benefits the financial returns were also very clear” says Janice Williams, Head of Facilities Management at Pets at Home.

As a pilot project, using a selection of different manufacturers’ products, Cygnia retrofitted the signs at 10 Pets at Home stores near their support office in Cheshire. Senior management visited the stores and based on the quality of illumination, selected the products for the rest of the programme.

Cygnia carried out all works outside of shopping hours, eliminating any disruption to the stores trading, whilst there, the signs were also thoroughly cleaned and re-tensioned, all work carried out included a 5 year parts and labour warranty.
