SSE Enterprise Contracting’s street lighting team works with private and public sector organisations to deliver full turnkey lighting solutions. Maintaining over 1 million street lights, we are the largest provider in the UK and Ireland. Through design, project management, consultancy, long-term PFI partnerships, installation and maintenance services, we play a major role in reducing energy consumption and carbon through LED conversion.

Working with Mayflower Smart Control, we bring innovation to street lighting through our central management system (CMS), enabling local authorities to realise their Smart City ambitions.
From variable street lighting outputs and performance reporting, to air quality monitoring and traffic management, we are helping cities to become smarter, greener and more efficient

Our Approach?

Innovation – working with the industry’s leading technology developers, we are bringing the latest innovation to our customers and helping them to meet the demands of a rapidly changing world.

Collaboration – from long term private finance initiative (PFI) partnerships with local authorities and councils, to delivering energy and CO2 savings, we provide a turnkey service to build the right infrastructure solution from the ground up.

Expertise – with a team of directly employed street lighting designers, consultants and lighting experts located throughout the UK and Ireland, we are the largest street lighting contractor of our kind.

Life-cycle management – we ensure your street lights stay on through a comprehensive life-cycle service. From planned maintenance and reactive services to all-embracing asset renewal.

Lighting Design

Our in-house lighting designers are highly skilled in meeting the individual needs of customers. For over 20 years, our design team have worked with housing and land developers, local authorities, consultants and architects throughout the UK and Ireland.

We deliver complete lighting solutions for highways, car parks, amenity areas, sports and architectural lighting. In-house design enables us to offer a full-service solution to deliver successful projects. We have delivered thousands of lighting designs with the underlying objective of reducing energy consumption. Additionally, we can devise lighting strategies and environmental impact assessments including site surveys to assess existing lighting

LED Street Lighting

We have been at the forefront of street lighting innovation since 2003, and are responsible for guiding many local authorities in embracing LED lighting.

Building long-term relationships with customers is our priority, and by offering a full asset life-cycle service we can ensure energy and carbon savings targets are met.

Working closely with our large supply chain, we make certain that we are in alignment with innovation so that our customers have full access to the latest technology. Supported by our colleagues at Mayflower Smart Control, we are installing CMS technology to increase street light management and improve energy efficiencies even further.

Highway Infrastructure

At SSE Enterprise Contracting, we believe that first-rate street lighting and highway infrastructure significantly adds to the local community. To ensure we meet expectations, we remain at the cutting edge of highway technology. A great example of this technology is our pioneering solution to meet the demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging by merging EV points into our street lighting columns.

We are also innovating traditional management contracts by up-skilling our technicians to become a single service provider of CCTV, traffic signals and number plate recognition services. By incorporating the management of these technologies into one service contract, local authorities are reducing spend whilst improving efficiency.

Smart City Technology

As the only street lighting contractor to operate a dedicated lighting CMS business, we are leading the drive towards Smart City connectivity. Our proven technology has helped cities connect their assets and provide remote management of light dimming, air quality monitoring and road surface temperature measurement.

We work with the world’s most technologically advanced companies to drive connectivity and enable local authorities to achieve their Smart City ambitions. Mayflower Smart Control’s CMS hardware is at the centre of this – the foundation that is helping cities to operate smarter, greener and more effectively.
