Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council is the governing body for Merthyr Tydfil County Borough, located in the historic County of Glamorgan, one of the Principal Areas of Wales. This flourishing County Borough has an estimated population of 60,183 and takes its name from local town Merthyr Tydfil. The County comprises the northern stretch of the Taff Valley, along with its smaller neighbour, the Taff Bargoed Valley.
Covering such a principal area, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council have continuous work on their hands to maintain and improve the local areas they govern. The council recently approached Dextra, as they had funds available to upgrade local community schools, and wanted to use them wisely, focusing on the buildings which most needed upgrading.
Successfully using Dextra Lighting for many years, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council have established high confidence in our products and service. The council wanted good paybacks on these site refurbishments, and our projected figures have been consistently achieved in both previous and current projects, making Dextra Lighting their preferred choice. We initially targeted five sites, which we reduced to four, following the completion of various surveys on all the schools.
For this particular project, the focus was on Bedlinog Community Primary School, a small State school located in Bedlinog, Treharris. The school caters for pupils aged 3-11 in the communities of Bedlinog and the surrounding areas, providing high quality education and opportunities helping children to meet their full potential and achieve their best. This project formed part of a complete refurbishment of all interior lighting on-site at the school.
