The Directors and I had originally enquired about what options were available in order to reduce the energy costs to Battersea Reach. We invited Mara in to discuss this and to investigate the options available to us as regards LED lighting.
On identifying the correct LED products to achieve the necessary performance and energy saving a detailed energy report was produced and sent to us. Mara had used the latest software and lighting plans to show a detailed projection as to how the LED lighting would look and achieve the energy and maintenance savings.
We discussed with them to keep costs to a minimum by retaining the existing decorative stairwell fittings and upgrading to LED conversion plates. In keeping with the building as a high end development, in the high reception areas and corridors they advised to use award winning British LED downlights. These high quality output LED’s have significantly reduced the energy consumption and enhanced the lighting in these areas.
The project was successfully managed and completed within the agreed time scales and to the highest standard. Mara kept us informed and up to date on each step and has also provided post install support as regards the lighting performance.
This is the first phase on the LED upgrade to the Development. I will have no hesitation in inviting Mara back to be included in the next tender stage and look forward to working with them again.
