We recently began work on a £25m LED street lighting contract for The Borough Council of Calderdale, Yorkshire

We have begun work on a £25m contract to replace and maintain street lighting across Calderdale, Yorkshire, which will see us working in the area until at least the year 2025.

Our team will be responsible for replacing around 19,000 LED lanterns and 9,000 lighting columns, and will carry out all the lighting and electrical design, associated ICP (Independent Connections Provider) connections and civil engineering works in the area.  In addition, we have also been contracted for the maintenance of both the existing and future asset portfolio, including fault repairs, cleaning of assets and emergency services for the street lighting infrastructure.

Calderdale is the latest contract-win during what has been a successful 2017 for the company – a year in which we are celebrating our 50th year in business – and the company is gaining an enviable reputation in the industry for its LED street lighting excellence in particular.

“As a company, we pride ourselves on delivering a comprehensive range of civil and electrical engineering services and infrastructure solutions, but it’s been our LED street lighting expertise that has seen us win significant contracts this year,” says McCann Local Authority Business Director, Tiz Gibson.

Indeed, we started 2017 with a similar contract-win for London’s second largest borough, Hillingdon, with the team commissioned to upgrade approximately 23,000 lanterns to LED and maintain 25,000 assets over a 5-year period.

Tiz Gibson adds, “We have made significant investments to ensure this project will be another success to add to our extensive portfolio. We have TUPE transferred several existing members of staff and we have employed local staff including several apprentices. We have also sourced and will use suppliers from the area which will contribute to the local economy. This is a fantastic piece of work and we look forward to building a strong partnership with Calderdale and the neighbouring authorities over the next eight years.”
