This project was undertaken directly between the shopping centre, wholesaler and Wirefield. Wirefield’s dimmable ‘EYE’ luminaires had been specified and successfully installed throughout the back of house stairwells over the previous 3 years. The site was, therefore, familiar with the quality and reliability of the Wirefield product. On the back of this, a close working relationship between the wholesaler and the Management Team on site gave Wirefield the opportunity to demonstrate the EYE-WI wireless lighting system.
The project was undertaken directly between the end client, wholesaler and the manufacturer and was formed of 2 phases, a warehouse and an office. Phase 1 focussed on a newly acquired warehouse with phase 2 focussing on a redesign of the current office layout. The wholesaler introduced Wirefield to the site from their long standing relationship, this allowed us to present the EYE-Wi wireless lighting system and specify it throughout the site.
Wirefield were behind the first significant installation of Philips Fortimo products in the UK. The Oracle Centre in Reading converted all of the shopping mall downlighters from Compact Fluorescent to Wirefield’s Circu-LED downlighters. Three years on and the installation looks the same as it did the day it was installed. The visual consistency over time has been as much a part of the success of this project as the energy savings and virtual elimination of maintenance costs.
