Refurbishing a Hotel

Our Clients had recently bought a Hotel in need of some care and attention. This looked like a fairly straight forward job but the twist was that the Client was very aware of Hotel operating costs and wanted to minimise these where ever possible without compromising too much on the design and style they wanted.

Built over 20 years ago the public areas were a mass of incandescent lamps and halogen down lighters. Working on the Reception, Bar and Restaurant we produced a design using a mixture of compact fluorescent fittings and LED down lighters. The light output from these high efficiency lights enabled, in this instance, a like for like replacement fitting for fitting.

The real quest for our Client is have we met his brief? Well with a reduction in power consumption of over 77% for the same operating hours, an interest free loan over three years from the Carbon Trust to pay for the work and greatly reduced maintenance costs I think we came close!
