City of London
The client had undergone upgrades of the lighting systems in the tenanted areas of the building over a period of months, but the landlord areas had yet to be completed. The old fluorescent lighting was inefficient and had no method of control, meaning luminaires were illuminated 24 hours a day. The client asked Metropolitan to review, design and install a new lighting installation that would increase efficiency and control.
Metropolitan carried out surveys of the existing system and proposed full removal of the existing fluorescent lamps, to be replaced with LED strip, which could then be connected to local PIRs, offering control. The existing lighting was isolated, removed and disposed of in compliance with the WEEE regulations. New LED strip was fixed in location and connected to the new PIRs in the lobby bays. The new installation offers much neater aesthetics and increased efficiency through load reductions and control functions.
