Lyco assists in reducing energy consumption across Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin Group

Specialist lighting company Lyco was commissioned to reduce energy consumption across the entire Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin estate by replacing all existing light bulbs with LED alternatives.


The hotel group has 31 sites throughout the UK, and many of the hotels are old, historical buildings that needed to have a tailored approach for each.


Lyco carried out surveys of all the sites in order to understand the individual requirements of each building. Rigorous analysis was undertaken to ensure that the most appropriate lighting solutions were used for illuminating specific areas. Where necessary, bespoke components were sought to harmonise with the unique style of the individual buildings.


The selected LED light bulbs had to meet exacting lighting objectives for each room and space, whilst complementing the bespoke nature of each property. 


Currently undertaking the second phase of installation, the Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin Group expects to see the energy consumption reduce immediately, resulting in a lower environmental impact and cost savings.


Speaking about the project, Ray Begley, Group Maintenance Manager said, “For over 10 years, the team at Lyco have helped us with our lighting needs in every way.  From helping us to easily convert our leading hotels to LEDs (and then to quickly realise significant cost savings), through to providing technical guidance and support to our maintenance teams, Lyco’s service, expertise and stock availability have been second to none."
