Problem areas identified were:

Chase Court in the prestigious Knightsbridge area is a traditional residential block of 26 apartments & studios spread over six floors. It forms part of a converted mansion next door to the world famous Harrods Store in London’s Kensington district.

Jamie Willsden CEO of Future Lighting realised: ‘These are potentially sensitive projects. Being so close to the iconic London store we needed to preserve the integrity of a building, offer energy efficient technology while working quickly and cleanly with the minimum disruption. We love the challenges this kind of lighting design give us.’

The communal areas can make a massive difference to the atmosphere and overall feel of an interior space. Residents may enjoy the architectural splendor but they don’t want to compromise on lighting design, efficiency or convenience.

Problem areas identified were:
  • Comprehensively removing all old technology safely
  • Lighting communal areas with attractive high wattage solutions in keeping with the décor
  • Saving energy
  • Offering satisfaction and peace of mind

The Future Lighting solution

Future Lighting designed smart, energy efficient solutions for the lobby and stairs.

  • Within the lobby and stair areas we replaced old compact fluorescent bulkheads with new LED alternatives.
  • Our fittings also incorporated integral microwave occupancy detectors so only lighting areas occupied when required.
  • Using this system we were able to reuse the existing lighting positions and wiring resulting in no damage to the buildings cosmetics and assisting rapid installation. Using LED has also improved light levels by 30%

New LED lights pay for themselves with the money saved each year

There has never been a better time to invest in energy efficiency. Businesses are looking to combat rising energy prices, reduce their carbon footprint and maintenance costs. It’s good for the economy and good for the planet. Many businesses are being forced to make these changes through the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. So installing LED lighting is the obvious choice for drastic energy savings and it’s a quick and easy win on CO2 reduction too.
