Commercial sustainable lighting design is a hot topic for specifiers across UK commercial construction and renovation projects, regardless of the project size or location.
Commercial sustainable lighting design is focused on innovation, energy efficient products and best practices that reduce a commercial building’s impact on the environment.
Lighting is responsible for 5% of global CO₂ emissions. By integrating energy efficient products such as LEDs (light emitting diodes), smart technology and layered lighting into a new build or renovation, sustainable lighting is instrumental in reducing that statistic.
The key sustainable lighting design principles are:
When designing lighting schemes for commercial spaces, visual comfort, energy efficiencies and long term sustainability strategies must all come into play.
A layering of ambient, accent and task lighting will create a healthy environment for users and ensure that energy efficiencies are achieved.
For the most effective sustainable lighting scheme for a commercial space, the purpose and function of each room or area needs to be fully understood. For example, task lighting will be more prevalent around workstations while ambient lighting will be more suitable for social areas.
Attention to branding and aesthetics will ensure that the sustainable design lighting scheme authentically represents the client’s culture.
At Detail Lighting we have decades of experience in sustainable lighting design. We advocate a ‘repair, why replace?’ policy. Our lighting products are designed to be re-used and refurbished, as well as easily serviced and upgraded. Refurbishing, rather than buying new lighting products produces far fewer carbon emissions.
Take a look at some of our commercial sustainable lighting design projects. At the London Dock Rum Factory we re-engineered the existing lighting, while at Vita Boutique Fitness for our commercial sustainable lighting design we introduced a blend of light sources using smart controls.
Detail Lighting are innovative experts in inspirational sustainable lighting for commercial spaces. We work with specifiers to design bespoke lighting schemes that are kind to the environment and meet the client brief. Contact us on 01908 613256 for more information.
LEDs produce less heat and more light. They use around 85% less electricity compared to traditional light bulbs.
Yes we encourage you to do so! See more information here.
