International Islamic University Malaysia (UIAM)@Gombak
INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC UNIVERSITY MALAYSIA (UIAM)
International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) main campus is at Gombak Kuala Lumpur which houses are 8 faculties. Under a performance contract, the traditional lighting was upgraded to LED lighting. The clients planned to apply energy saving methods in the university.
The scope of the work was to manufacture & install the T8 LED tube lights in the university. For this project, the T8 LED tube light to replace was 42,000 units. The clients gave four months to complete this lighting project. The challenge was to store the product on site. The solution is to store 2 shipments of LED tube lights in a 40 feet container. Another challenge at that time was to install during and around working hours which classes, offices and the library was occupied. Access to some area was restricted to Saturdays. All installation work was done with the presence from the clients and the maintenance team. Every day, documentation was updated to identify the quantity installed and the locations. Every single tube was identified by zone and serial number.
Apart from some site delay, difficulty to access some areas, the project was completed in good time. The targets have been achieved, and IIUM experienced significant reduction in energy and maintenance cost. The impact of the change is clearly noticeable, with improvement of in all areas of illumination. The maintenance costs have been reduced as a result of the modernization, and IIUM took a significant step to be environmentally friendly.
