We were asked by East of England Co-op to provide an alternative design for their new Co-op Store in the old Budgens premises at Hamblin Road, Woodbridge. We were given just 7 days prior to the ordering date of materials to provide a full design as the store opening date was just a few weeks away.
Our Lighting Design team managed to provide a full design for all areas complete with data sheets within 2 days for the Main Store, new Subway area and the new Post office.
The remit was to provide a design that was both aesthetically pleasing but at the same time the East of England Co-op wanted a store that looked different due to its location in the centre of the historic market town of Woodbridge. We were still aware that strict lux levels and emergency coverage had to be in compliance with CIBSE guidelines and BS5266.
Once the order was placed, we had the main store luminaires on-site within 5 days and out and out specials on-site within 10 working days. We worked closely with J A Collins who were the electrical contractors, they completed the installation and we supplied of all materials on time.
Have a look at the pictures and video below, we hope that you agree the finished supermarket looks great and very different compared to the normal bland supermarket we all take for granted these days. We were pleased to work with East of England Co-op on this project and it’s nice to work with a forward thinking company trying to achieve something a bit different from the norm!
Give Beacon Lighting Design team a call if you need any help with your lighting needs, regardless of the size of the project.
