Project Description

The Brief

Energicity Limited was requested to undertake a detailed review of the communal areas that serve Exchange House.

The intention of the review was to ascertain whether there was opportunity for implementing smarter solutions in respect of energy usage and running costs within the landlord’s communal areas.

The Challenges

  • Significantly reduce energy costs whilst improving the aesthetics of the communal areas.

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

  • Reduce the overall number of lights whilst maintaining the same light level

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

The Solution

Energicity completed a full audit of the existing communal lighting, historical communal energy costs and the levels of expenditure regarding repair and maintenance costs associated to the lighting across the previous 3 years.

A micro monitoring process was undertaken which allows the client to have clear sight of the actual energy costs attributed to each type of light within the communal areas. A trial floor was installed which included high quality LED lighting and smart controls. This trial floor provided additional savings data and allowed residents to review the aesthetics of the new lighting solution.

The Outcome

The project was delivered by Energicity in June 2015 and hit ROI in August 2017. The implementation of this lighting scheme has had the effect of providing Exchange House with an additional £766.00 per month.
