Working closely with Ipswich Borough Council and Optimum Controls, Beacon Lights were asked to put forward proposals to improve the Car Park lighting at their Grafton House Headquarters in Ipswich, using LED luminaires.

Several of the columns were unlit due to ballast failures in the existing older 100w M/Halide discharge fittings, which was causing a safety and security issue for employees leaving the building during the hours of darkness.

We were also asked to improve the existing lux levels and at the same time achieve energy savings. The other criteria to consider was that the luminaires needed to be dark sky compliant due to residential flats to the rear of the car park.

Working closely with Performance in Lighting we came up with a solution using their Theos 70w LED Street Light (see attached photo and link below). These Theos luminaires satisfied all the requirements for this project, providing:

  • Improved lux levels for a more secure environment
  • Improved lighting uniformity with no more dark spots
  • No more costly lamp changes thus reducing maintenance costs
  • Reduced energy running costs, giving Ipswich Borough Council over 30% energy savings compared to the existing discharge fittings

The Theos luminaires come with a full 5 year warranty giving quality assurance and peace of mind.
