Energicity has been working with Mainstay for over 5 years, assisting the management teams and estate managers to deliver a green and super-efficient solution when it comes to the lighting in the communal areas.

Liberty Place, a large residential development in the heart of Birmingham city centre, is one of the projects recently completed by Energicity. The Resident’s Management Company (RMC) decided Energicity’s proposals best solved the lighting issues throughout the development and showed a clear return on investment.

Three main issues needed addressing, the first being the existing fluorescent lighting had no controls in place, so led to high ongoing energy bills. In addition, they found they were spending a good proportion of their budget on ongoing repairs and maintenance due to failed lights and finally, the lighting in the building was dated and unattractive which was unsuitable for the high-end communal areas.

Energicity installed intelligent LED lighting throughout the car parks, stairwells and corridors. As the stairwell receives lots of natural daylight, it made sense to install sensors to control the new LED lighting that were only activated when natural light levels had dropped sufficiently, and motion was detected. The controls ensured significant cost savings, whilst the new lighting provided a huge boost to the aesthetics at the development.

Saf Hussain, Site Manager at Liberty Place said, “The lighting for the building had become inefficient and tired looking. We were also spending lots of money replacing bulbs and general ongoing repairs and maintenance. The new lighting looks great! The team were a joy to work with from the tender process right the way through to the installation team, they were all very professional and kept us updated as it all progressed. Energicity have also made significant cost savings which makes our residents pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Energicity in the future and I’d happily recommend them as experts within their field.”

Chris Burke, Associate Director for Energicity said, “We were delighted to be appointed by Mainstay and the resident directors at this landmark city centre development in Birmingham. Liberty Place is a project that we had been working towards for some time, and we knew we could make a real difference. The installation of intelligent LED lighting throughout the car parks, corridors and stairwells will not only have a huge impact in reducing the existing energy spend, but it has also improved the aesthetics throughout Liberty Place. We look forward to working with Mainstay on future projects.”
