Technical Overview

Lux readings are taken across the site in order to determine current lighting levels. Levels in the basement Car park were higher than necessary according to industry standards, not all fittings were functioning.

Car park lighting was modelled using DIALux indicating over specified lighting levels, action taken:

• Existing twin 58W Fluorescent fittings operating 24hrs 365 days replaced with twin 24W LED units with individual inbuilt microwave motion sensors. The new LED units operate independently when motion is detected ensuring maximum energy savings.

• The number of fittings in the basement car park was reduced from 40 to 30. This was achieved by using lighting modelling software to simulate and specify lighting levels according to current CIBSE Guidelines and BS 5489 Part 9. Design layout was agreed and the reduced quantity of fittings was installed.
