INUI are delighted with their recent refurbishment of the Chartwell Derby Office LED upgrade – Pride Park Derby. The Offices had experienced a good result with its previous lighting upgrade that was carried-out just over 6 years ago. This was using T5 14-watt Modular Florescent fittings.
An site survey noted the existing lighting was of 4 x 14-watt T5 600x600mm Modular Florescent fittings. Due to the life of the fittings the maintenance was becoming more of an issue as were the LUX levels.
Chartwell have always prided themselves on being at the forefront within their industry and the office lighting and it's staff are no exception. The MD knew it was time to progress forward and requested the assistance of INUI LED. INUI put together a lighting design for the office and meeting rooms.
An important requirement was to reduce energy consumption but also improve the LUX levels throughout the offices. Another driving point for Chartwell was to reduce their Carbon Foot Print.

Working closely with our client and listening carefully to their needs, a lighting design was created. A timetable was drawn up for the installation to ensure the offices and meeting rooms daily activities could continue as normal. This was done without interruption from our installation team.

The scheme used our LED 36-watt 600x600mm Panel range in 4500k Natural Daylight White colour. The installation was on a like for like basis.
The original LUX levels within the office areas was between 260 and 332 depending on where this reading was taken from.
Once installation was completed the average readings throughout the offices was 495 LUX. The original running costs for this area based on the electricity costs was just over £1,300.00 pa. including maintenance cost.
The LED installation reduced these running cost to £600.00 pa. This has a saving of £700.00 pa. and an ROI of just over 2.3 years inclusive of installation costs.
