Hampshire shopping precinct makes significant energy savings with Light Efficient Design

Light Efficient Design’s LED lighting refurbishment of a Hampshire shopping precinct resulted in a brighter ambience for shoppers, plus reduced energy and maintenance costs.

Retrofit LED upgrade enhances lighting while reducing energy and re-lamping costs.

Light Efficient Design UK’s retrofit LED lighting solutions have enabled a popular and long-established outdoor shopping precinct to make major energy savings in the first year of operation and see lamp replacement costs plummet.

The Hampshire-based centre attracts high daily footfall from shoppers visiting such well-known retail outlets as Argos, Boots, Costa coffee, KFC, Primark, Sainsbury, and WH Smith. As part of a recent major refurbishment there was a requirement to upgrade the existing metal halide floodlighting to LEDs. This was to create a brighter ambience for shoppers as well as reduce energy and maintenance costs.

Following an evaluation of potential solutions on the market a LED retrofit re-lamping approach was selected. Local wholesaler CRS recommended the LED-8087 retrofit from UK based Light Efficient Design, which was chosen for its high performance and cost-effectiveness. Not only did this allow retention of the existing and still serviceable fittings, ensuring considerable immediate savings to be made on the labour required, it also offered a five-year lifetime warranty, providing major future savings on lamp replacement costs.

Approximately 40 x 100-watt wall-mounted metal halide lamps have been replaced with 30- watt Light Efficient Design UK LED-8087 retrofit lamps. The existing reflectors in the fitting were removed as the interior space was limited and was not necessary; the LED-8087’s unique and fully directional one-sided design ensures optimal usage of all available light.
