Dramatic Savings with Flux Products for Elmsleigh Car Park


THE BRIEF:

ESL, the lighting consultancy partners to Flux LED, were invited and subsequently won the tender to complete the lighting upgrade at Elmsleigh Car parkElmsleigh Street Car Park consists of 511 spaces located on  split levels. The car park is open from 8am – 7pm Monday to Sunday. The columns on the roof level have recently been fitted with photocells.


THE SOLUTION:

One of the main problems associated with this Car Park was the luminaires were heavily recessed, obstructing the level of light that was reaching ground level.

Following a detailed survey we recommended changing the old HQi bulkheads for 2 x 28w T5 fittings with microwave sensors fittedHowever, we lowered the lights so that the luminaires were level with the height of the recess. All other existing fittings were retrofitted with LED lamps including the external floodlights.

Spelthorne Council had been spending an estimated £12,892 per annum on lighting energy costs per year.  Following the lighting upgrade this was reduced to an estimated £3,183, saving in the region of £9,708 per year. A reduction of 75% There were also additional savings to be made in terms of lamp replenishment cost and internal maintenance

Innovative LED lighting creates substantial cost savings for SIG UK 


THE BRIEF:

SIG Plc is a leading distributor of specialist building products in Europe, with strong positions in its core markets of insulation and energy management, interiors and exteriors.  The Group principally operates in 11 countries in Europe and has trading operations in a further 6, including countries in the Middle East, serving a wide range of trades in the building and construction markets. 

ESL (the lighting consultancy partner of Flux LED) ensured there was a reduction of wattage to reduce energy costs, increased lamp life, increased lumen output ration (LOR), decreased maintenance requirements and unification of lamp types where applicable.


THE SOLUTION:

The ESL design team undertook a site survey of the warehouse in Rotherham to identify the best product design to reach all the above objectives. Substantial cost savings could be made through the use of energy efficient LED lighting, whilst achieving an improvement in light levels within the warehouse that improved the working conditions for employees. Through innovative lighting we were able to achieve a 75% reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions, offering a 2.2 years payback on investment.  Maintenance issues were also eliminated for the medium to long term.
