Project Description

The Brief

Engaged in January 2014, Energicity was asked to review this residential block of 144 apartments, consisting of 20 floors of communal lighting. The client felt there was an opportunity to reduce ongoing costs but wished to ensure that any potential changes to the communal lighting would only enhance the aesthetics.

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 levels

  • Ensure 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 December 2014 and hit ROI in November 2016. The implementation of this lighting scheme has had the effect of providing Imperial Point with an additional £2,700.00 per month.

Energicity has since assisted Emerson across their residential leasehold portfolio.

          Our Client Said

We have been delighted with the project delivered at Imperial Point. It has delivered in all areas. Energicity’s expertise allowed us to massively reduce costs and improve the communal areas.

Due to the success of the Imperial Point project, we appointed Energicity to complete a similar LED lighting upgrade to our other prime residential tower Sovereign Point in December 2015. We would happily recommend Energicity to anyone.
