“Gryphon were selected by First Group to support our SWR franchise in rolling-out over 16,000 new LED luminaire replacements on over 160 stations. Aside from the significant cost of a project of this nature, there were many stakeholders that had to be engaged and satisfied.  

From the outset, the Gryphon team were able to disseminate asset data for thousands of station lamps by category, position and type and construct highly accurate installation and cost tracking tools for use by the project team. Not only did this approach result in SWR meeting its budget constraints, it proved vital in manging the productivity and performance of our contractors. 

I would certainly recommend Gryphon to any organisation who are charged with delivering large scale technology themed asset renewal programmes.”

Project Overview:

Under the recent franchise award, SWR had a committed obligation to replace all legacy station lighting (16,000+) with new, energy saving LED luminaires. The Capex of £6m represented a significant investment in the station estate and aside from the obvious energy savings, the improved lighting performance would have a positive effect to the overall station environment and passenger journey experience.
