Project Description

The Brief

Engaged in 2015, Energicity was asked to review the car park lighting at this residential block of 500 apartments. The existing fluorescent lighting was in a poor state of repair and in many areas within the car park the number of lights were over specified. The client wished to reduce the number of lights, introduce LED lighting and lighting controls to provide the leaseholders with ongoing savings to service charge costs.

The Challenges

  • Reduce the number of lights whilst maintaining the correct lux levels.

  • Completely remove repair and maintenance costs with the provision of a lengthy parts and labour warranty

  • Retrofit the solution to ensure that the capital costs were as economical as possible.

  • Introduce lighting controls and ensure that the solution can be managed by the client in the long term.

The Solution

Energicity completed a full audit of the lighting within the car park areas to asses existing costs and confirm the viability of a retrofit solution.

Dialux software was then utilised to carefully select the lights to be removed and ensure that the light levels post project would exceed the requirements for car parking areas.

Lighting controls were introduced at each light point by way of dimmable microwave replaceable LED tubes.

The Outcome

The project was delivered by Energicity in June 2017 and will hit ROI in June 2019. The implementation of this lighting scheme has had the effect of providing West Point with an additional £1,308.00 per month.

In addition to the ongoing savings, West Point now has significantly less lights to maintain, ensuring that the benefits are truly long term.
