Project Description

The Brief

Energicity was tasked in the specification, installation and commission of a new LED emergency lighting solution for the internal communal areas of this high-profile development.

Given the scale and complexity of Highbury Square, the implementation of self-testing technology would be of significant benefit to the ongoing management of the site, in addition to the energy savings that would be achieved.

The Challenges

  • Blending the new emergency lighting with existing non-emergency lighting in style, colour temperature and performance

  • Assist the client by providing a clear and simple funding solution in the form of a payment plan stretching across 3 years

  • Reduce ongoing costs by utilising self-testing technology

  • Ensure that the solution would allow the client to effectively manage and maintain the lighting system for the long term

The Solution

Energicity worked hand in hand with the client and the onsite management team to ensure that the solution delivered would meet all the compliance requirements and blend in seamlessly with the existing non- emergency lighting.

Extensive trials were carried out onsite to ensure that the recommended LED emergency lighting met with our clients’ requirements. Energicity provided the client with a 3-year funding option which enabled the project to proceed quickly and without affecting existing reserve funds.

The Outcome

The six-week project was delivered by Energicity in November and December 2016. We are very proud to say that the pre-project planning allowed us to ensure that there was no disruption to residents and each of the 33 residential apartment blocks that make up this scheme were completed and certificated in line with the project plan.

We continue to work with the onsite management team to ensure that the phased replacement of the non-emergency lighting is completed just as effectively as this project.
