“How much do floodlights cost for a football pitch?” “How much will it cost to upgrade the floodlights on our hockey pitch?” “Could you send me a rough quote for our rugby pitch lights?”
We get asked questions like these a lot but it really isn’t as simple as just throwing out a ballpark figure.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered when installing new floodlights or upgrading existing ones to LED. At Halliday Lighting, we give every project a bespoke quote based on these factors and we also take into account the overall requirements of the site, its users and the sports application.
What factors are considered when Halliday Lighting quote for the installation of floodlights?
Added extras – at Halliday Lighting, we are able to supply and install a range of additional products to support your sports lighting projects. These can be added as confirmed or optional extras to your quote.
No two projects are the same so it is really important that you set your budget or base an application for funding or investment on a bespoke quote and not on an average value or a generic quote.
To give you a rough indication of why an average value or generic quote isn’t useful, here are some average cost brackets to show just how varied these can be (please also note that your bespoke quote could of course sit below or above these costings dependent on the factors we’ve mentioned throughout this article).
To install floodlights on a new-build 3G football or rugby pitch, an average cost is likely to sit between £45,000 – £55,000. To upgrade existing metal halide floodlights to LEDs for a 3G pitch, it would average between £29,000 – £35,000. For hockey pitch lighting, an average cost will often be between £45,000 – £65,000.
Before you get a price quoted for your lighting installation, please request that a site visit is carried out. This allows an experienced technician to fully understand the specifics and complexities of each individual project and can ensure that a more accurate quote can be provided.
Our team at Halliday Lighting offer a site survey and quotation for free so that you are able to get the bespoke quote that you need for your sports lighting project. We provide a full turnkey solution for floodlighting so are also able to support you with the planning, design and installation of your project.
