The Public Buildings Maintenance Service has been busy over the summer period upgrading the security of Monaco’s 13 schools and 5 crèches.
The work has been undertaken as part of the regular maintenance undertaken when the children and staff are absent.
This year, the focus has been on installing opaque burglar-resistant films to doors and windows, and fitting burglar alarms where appropriate.
Another focus has been on improving energy savings, with the gradual installation of LED lighting and energy meters, plus additional insulation.
By the end of November, 2018, nearly 100 photovoltaic panel modules will be installed on the roof of the École des Révoires. This clean energy will be used in the school and will cover up to 20 percent of its needs.
