The right lighting
Philips helped organise a pilot at Spire Leicester Hospital in Oadby, focusing on areas where the lighting was used for the longest periods of time and installing metering equipment to independently measure the energy savings. In corridors, the reception area and main offices the existing fluorescent lighting has been replaced by a number of different LED luminaires on a point-for-point basis.
The project took full advantage of Philips’ ability to provide a total solution, which encompassed a site survey, lighting design, installation services, measurement of energy consumption and validation of savings. Other CoreLine products were used, including the Recessed panels in corridors, Recessed office-compliant versions in offices, Waterproof in plant rooms, Wall-mounted in stairwells and Downlights in reception.
In addition, some of the existing wall lights were replaced with Recessed panels to improve light distribution and, because of their recessed design, also facilitate cleaning.
