Working closely with East of England Co-op Building Services team we were asked to provide another full lighting design and proposals for the latest Co-op store refurbishment. This time it was a complete refurbishment of the old Budgens Supermarket at Bullocks Fair Close, Harleston in Norfolk.
Our Lighting Design team provided a full CAD design complete with layout plans for all areas complete with data sheets, within 7 days, for the main Co-op store, exterior and back of house. The remit was to provide a complete LED design solution that was both aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient to follow on from our previous successful designs at Hamblin Road Store and the Acle Road food store.
East of England Co-op’s own specific requirements needed to be taken into consideration in addition to compliance with current guidelines for lux levels and emergency lighting coverage.
At Beacon Lights we like a challenge and this project was to be no exception with one big surprise. One of the customer’s particular requirements was to provide again the ceiling mounted LED lighting fittings which were to resemble wine crate boxes complete with sprayed on stencils, which were to be situated down the wines and spirit aisle. Particular attention had to be given to their weight and future maintenance as they were being mounted on the suspended ceiling, while still providing the necessary lux level in this area. Just when things were going well our Joiner and supplier of the wine crates unexpectedly went out of business just before completion of the order. We managed to find an alternative supplier at very short notice, who we owe a big thanks to, and were able to complete the supply of the crates within the very tight timeframe!
Specialising in LED light strip at Beacon Lights, it was no problem coming up with a solution for lighting their vegetable display stands. We can assemble LED strip to custom lengths in-house, in dimmable or IP rated versions and in a variety of wattages and colours from stock at our premises in Leiston. We also hold an extensive range of extrusion for the LED strip, to overcome specific mounting challenges. Please give us a call on 01728 833800 to discuss any particular challenge you may be trying to cope with.
We are fortunate to work with a number of innovative local companies and between us we came up with a superb solution to the customer requirements, as can be seen in the photos attached, combining creativity with the latest in LED lamp technology. Additionally, the pendant luminaires were sprayed to bespoke RAL colours specified by the East of England Co-op.
Following receipt of the order the main store luminaires were on-site within 10 days and the specials on-site within 14 working days. We worked closely with Collins Electrical, the preferred electrical contractors on this project. Between us the supply of materials and installation ran smoothly and efficiently and was completed on time.
Every picture tells a story and we are sure you will agree that the finished supermarket looks great and very different to the normal bland supermarket we all take for granted these days.
We are pleased to have worked with East of England Co-op and Collins Electrical on this project. It is a privilege to work with forward thinking companies to achieve something a little bit different from the norm!
At Beacon Lights we are your one-stop-shop for all your lighting requirements and challenges – we really do “create drama with light”
