The Future Lighting solution

  • Remove all old, high wattage light fittings. This was to include all lobbies, stairs, reception and facility rooms
  • Replace staircase lighting for new LED Bulkheads
  • Occupancy Detectors, preventing wasted energy usage during unoccupied periods
  • Replace all communal lobby area lights for new retro-fit LED alternatives
  • Installation of remote occupancy detectors to apartment communal lobbies, therefore controlling lights during occupied periods only.
  • Supply 5 Year Guarantee documents
  • Replace old type 50W halogen spotlights with new 4W LED alternatives and recessed Twin 26W compact fluorescent down lighters for 14w LED fittings in a lift lobby
  • Design and cost consultancy regarding over specification of existing lighting design. Reduce 25% of fittings to the lift lobby areas on all floors without incurring light level loss.
  • Refit lighting in two staircases feeding 10 floors that were permanently lit 24/7 without the option of control. Most fittings were located adjacent to glazed window areas
  • Replace all compact 35W fluorescent fittings for new 14W LED alternatives, with integral occupancy and light level detectors.Refit lighting in two staircases feeding 10 floors that were permanently lit 24/7 without the option of control.

Results

The installation of energy saving lighting for my Client looks great and they are pleased as well with the savings that will be made.

  • Considerable energy usage (90% savings) and high maintenance costs were eradicated.
  • Overall lighting levels were improved dramatically.
  • The reduction of fittings saved 65%+ of energy used but light levels were increased by 20%.
  • Energy savings and reduced carbon footprint by staircase lighting systems switching lights “on” only during dusk and when occupied. These areas have saved 90% “plus” in energy consumption as these staircases are rarely used.
New LED lights pay for themselves with the money saved each year
