Case Study

Parkside Mansions

Residents at Parkside Mansions development and their property managers had become increasingly unhappy that their communal lighting had become less than luxurious; maintenance costs were exorbitant and the failing system was no longer fit for purpose.
  • Project:
  • Energy efficient lighting scheme
  • Building:
  • Parkside
  • Client:
  • Gateway
  • Instructing Client:
  • Gateway
Problem areas identified were:

The client was also holding a quotation running into £0000’s for urgent lighting repairs required to meet requirements.

Future Lighting was delighted to be commissioned to assist with the design and development of a new efficient & complaint lighting solution utilising the existing decorative light bodies; while still complementing the original design of the building.

Due to the high specification décor the client was struggling to find a suitable fitting design that wouldn’t compromise the internal design scheme. Previous contactors/lighting specialist couldn’t propose a suitable solution.

The maintenance team had done their utmost to repair the system but the task was never ending, so property managers contacted Future Lighting for help. We arranged a survey and proposed a retrofit LED solution that would utilise the existing flush lamp housings.

  • High wattage lighting with associated high running costs
  • Failed Emergency Lighting
  • Ongoing lighting failures resulting in a poorly maintained feel
  • Mix of lamp types and poor colour matching
Challenges included:
  • Utilisation of the existing fittings & wiring system to prevent major cosmetic damage.
  • Designing a lighting scheme that would complement rather than detract from the original design of the building
  • Avoiding disruption to residents and their visitors.
