History of Ducreux
Ducreux Limited was formed in October 2010 by Mark Burrows and Larry Taylor who left established and successful careers to develop a professional design practice to service the ever increasing external lighting market.
In April 2015 Graham Baggott joined the company bringing with him 35 plus years technical, management and commercial experience.
We recognised at an early stage, the future impact that Private Finance Initiatives would have on the UK’s existing public lighting infrastructure, and focused on the delivery of an external provider’s role to assist prospective major bidders with regard to future projects.
Following the demise of PFI projects we developed a revised strategy primarily focusing on the promotion of a ‘safe and operational’ philosophy and 'spend to save' solutions based on asset intelligence and electrical and structural testing processes to acheive best value and energy and carbon reductions.
We aim to promote the development of sustainable solutions, in particular, addressing:
Development of Safe and Operational Strategies
Reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions
Increase in energy efficiency
Reduction in upward light pollution
Use of efficient and recyclable materials
Use of efficient and cutting edge technologies
We are based in South Devon, Hertfordshire and Leicestershire and are able to provide a nationwide service.
We currently employ a wealth of experienced associates, to ensure the delivery of our comprehensive services, and have the vision to continue to expand to maintain our high level of commitment to our existing and developing client base. We are registered with HERS (Gold Members) and are Members of HEMSA, holding ISO9001 and 14001 certification. We have representatives which sit on HEA/HEMSA Council.
Our forward thinking ethos, and professional approach has assisted in our rapid growth and high standing within various sectors of the lighting industry.
We are an equal opportunity employer and operate an equality policy in respect of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation and religion/belief’.
