LIGHTING PROJECTS BUTE-IFUL JOB Reggiani UK has supplied a variety of light fittings that include the offbeat Splyt and Envios luminaires for the refurbishment of Bute Mills, the new home for Luton based charity Youthscape. Previously a steam flourmill, the 100 year old building is one of the most iconic in the centre of the Bedfordshire town. It was purchased by the charity in 2013 and has since gone through a complete transformation. All five floors, totalling 10,000ft 2 , have now been fully refurbished with the result being a stunning creation of fashionable architectural space that is also sympathetic to the original structure of the building. Leading architect HOK was responsible for the overall project design scheme and worked closely with lighting designer Xavier Fulbright of Lumineer Studio and Stuart Gaunt, head of technical specification at Reggiani UK. Reggiani’s surface mounted Splyt incorporating high performance optics was specified for good ambient lighting in most central spaces at Bute Mills. The Splyt luminaire is extremely versatile and includes semi-recessed, track, surface and wall mounting options to suit virtually any application. Available in 120mm and 150mm sizes, both were utilised on the Bute Mills project with 17W and 31W LED lamps respectively. SPORTS PROGRAMME The University of Bristol appointed Dextra Lighting and AMP Electrical to brighten up and future proof its sports centre facilities. The LED upgrade has allowed the prestigious university to balance energy efficiency with superior light quality, whilst keeping installation and maintenance costs to a minimum. Earning a place as one of the top 40 institutions in QS World University rankings doesn’t come cheap. In order to maintain, and improve on, the outstanding quality and efficiency of its educational facilities, the University of Bristol has launched a £525m capital investment programme to be delivered incrementally over the next 10 years. Dextra Lighting teamed up with AMP Electrical – the Bristol University approved installer – which undertook the work to an exacting standard, reprogramming the DALI system for maximum economic effect. A total of 116 MODLED Curve luminaires were installed as main lighting for the dance and aerobics studios and two gym rooms featuring weights, resistance machines and treadmills. The versatile recessed luminaire was supplied in a 4,500Lm output, in 600x600mm body size to provide a direct replacement for the existing fittings and boost lux levels in all areas. FIT FOR PURPOSE A gym in Rickmansworth is making considerable energy savings thanks to new LEDs from Luceco.
 William Penn Leisure has a newly refurbished gym with over 60 stations, fitness studios, swimming pool, sauna and steam room, sports hall and an all-weather pitch. After new state-of-the-art fitness equipment had been installed at William Penn Leisure Centre, the air-conditioned gym had also benefited from a
makeover, including a lighting refurbishment in the studios and surrounding corridors. LED LuxPanel luminaires from Luceco have been installed ensuring a well lit environment to work out in. With 50,000 hours of maintenance free life and significant energy savings over traditional light sources, the LuxPanel is supplied with remote ‘plug and play’ drivers and is quick and easy to install and produces consistent light output over its entire life, with 100 per cent instant light with no warm up time as required by fluorescent lamp luminaires. SCHOOL SUPPLIES Wootton Upper School & Arts College has been equipped with highly efficient LED lighting supplied and installed by Energys Group. With an impressive Oftsed score and a widespread reputation for its standards of academic excellence, Wootton Upper School and Arts College is one of Bedfordshire’s top performing schools. Now, thanks to a comprehensive upgrade featuring Energys’s New Vision LED lights, it has a first rate lighting infrastructure to match. The desire to achieve improved levels of brightness and an overall reduction in energy expenditure were among the priorities for the overhaul. The high expectations for the project saw the school engage Cube Building Consultancy, which provides a full range of building surveying services for commercial, education and residential property occupiers and owners. Cube was tasked with delivering ‘best value and maximum outcomes’ for the school throughout the project. A popular choice for school and corporate applications, among others, the New Vision product range of LED lamps includes new LED fittings, LED retrofit lamps, wall lights, downlights and a full suite of external LED lighting, all of them specified for very low energy consumption in order to deliver the maximum savings to the client. AT YOUR LEISURE Ventola Projects has completed a project in Kent where it has been working with the well known My Time Leisure Centre, a centre that provides a swimming pool, soft play centre, café, bowling alley, crèche and gym. The Ventola team installed the latest LED lighting product and system that Ventola has recently added to its ever growing offerings. The management at this Kent facility were very impressed with the end result and how Ventola managed to accommodate a multiple of different applications to ensure the new LED product not only met a price range but also accommodated the effect they required with increased energy cost savings and long term maintenance savings. The completion of the project followed the recent launch of Ventola Projects’ latest product. The VAvR CS3/1 LED light uses its own central operating system for ease of use and controllability throughout any facility or application. The CS3/1 LED unit allows irregular shaped lighting patterns which helps to mould into a very narrow, almost oval shaped light that fits into tight places ensuring there is little overspill of light where it’s not necessary, such as the bowling lanes at the My Time Leisure Centre. MODERN MOTORING Dorset car dealership Motorwell Mitsubishi Bridport has received a revitalised look and feel courtesy of a new LED lighting scheme by Kosnic Lighting. The LED technology company was appointed to design a lighting scheme that would better showcase the vehicles on sale, while also providing the cost saving benefits of LED products. In any sales environment, lighting is important but even more so in a car dealership when working with high value purchases that are reflective and often sold on their perceived image as well as performance. Previously using fluorescent and metal halide fittings, Kosnic specified slim profile 9mm LED LUMI 40W 6500K twin bar panels for the showroom, which were supplied by AJ Electrical Distributors in Bridport and installed by Jason White Electrical Services. Kosnic’s lighting scheme and products have lowered Motorwell Mitsubishi Bridport’s energy consumption by more than 75 per cent, reducing it from 5.5kWh to 1.25kWh. The light output has quadrupled to better illuminate the sales floor and highlight the vehicles. Based on a 10 hour day, the project has an 18 month payback period, with replacement lamp and maintenance costs also reduced. 10 LIGHTING PROJECTS BUTE-IFUL JOB Reggiani UK has supplied a variety of light fittings that include the offbeat Splyt and Envios luminaires for the refurbishment of Bute Mills, the new home for Luton based charity Youthscape.
