Rothley Parish Church: LED Upgrade Case Study
INUI are delighted with their recent LED lighting refurbishment at Rothley Parish Church – St. Mary and St. John in the village of Rothley, Leicestershire. The church dates from the 10th century, with Norman, Medieval and Victorian architectural influences and is of largely Medieval origin. The church has a rich history and serves as an important hub of village life.
An initial site survey noted that the existing lighting was a mix of halogen and compact florescent lights. This was proving to be inadequate for church users needs and left parts of church poorly lit. Furthermore, the lights were frequently failing resulting in higher than necessary maintenance costs.
A particular requirement was a need to maintain the aesthetic quality of the churches interior and ensure that the actual lights themselves remained unobtrusive and did not become an obvious feature.
Another important client concern was the continued smooth running of a busy village church. With its full schedule of services, meetings and clubs that could simply not be interrupted for an LED installation!
Listening carefully to our clients needs, a lighting design was created. This not only catered for the comfort of church users but which would also enhance the churches many attractive and important features. A timetable was drawn up for the actual installation to ensure the churches’ daily activities could continue as normal without interruption from installation staff.
We think the results speak for themselves!
The scheme involves the use of our new LED floodlight range in 3000 k warm white colour. The actual casings of the lights were designed to keep their presence to a minimum. Darker casings used along the wooden roof interior of the aisles. White casings used for the light coloured stone of the window mouldings.
We’re sure you will agree that the new LED lighting scheme shows off the architecture, monuments and features of interest of Rothley Parish Church as well and providing a comfortable and welcoming feel to its users. Our clients were delighted with the result.
Revd Rob Gladstone commented "We are really pleased with the Inui LED lighting units which are of the highest quality. LEDecolite Ltd gave outstanding customer service and provided us with an unparalleled range of options allowing us to adapt the units to meet our needs. They worked very hard and efficiently to replace the old lights in our church in a narrow window of opportunity in our busy Christmas schedule. The company has a real “can do” attitude!"
