King Cole Mills | Bingley

Apartment blocks benefit from energy efficient LED solution. Town and City had been asked by the residents to find solutions that would help reduce the overall energy and maintenance costs at King Cole Mills as well as the carbon footprint.

Nandos Restaurants | Nationwide

Nandos had a number of incumbent suppliers, but Rexel felt they could offer an enhanced total solution for their lamp and tube supply that would improve their efficiency and knowledge of the estate. Rexel were tasked to identify areas of cost and energy saving, including reduction in maintenance time and costs.

City Point | City of London

400 ft high City of London landmark building with 36 storeys requiring full lighting / energy survey with a view to replacement of all stairwell fittings. Recommendation made to install 435 fittings offering a dimming down facility and presence detection that enabled areas of low usage to remain lit at a minimum level, until occupied. 

New Look | Nationwide

The objective was to achieve reduced costs via reduced energy consumption and maintenance across the 650 store chain. A bespoke survey was carried out at every location and a total quantity of 10,000 LED lamps and GU10 fittings, and 3,500 PAR30 lamps were recommended to replace existing lighting and achieve energy and cost savings. Rexel’s multiple locations were used to hold consignment stock at branch level. End results in a payback been achieved in 14 months.

APCOA Car Parks | Sheffield

Multi-Story Car Park in Sheffield, open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. 500 fittings installed, with annual energy costs of £28k. Objective was to find a cost-effective solution that would significantly reduce energy consumption without compromising safety and security aspect for car park users resulting in an energy saving of 45%.

Castlepoint Shopping Park | Bournemouth

The centre hosts some 11m shoppers every year, and with 95,000 cars visiting each week, an energy & cost saving lighting solution was required with full testing and performance measurement prior to commitment to install across the entire site.

West Quay Car Parks | Southampton

Rexel & Wirefield liaised with contractors to agree details of the installation and assist with the tendering process, then project-managed the supply over a 4 month installation period. Various technical difficulties had to be overcome at the outset such as controlling sets of luminaries across multiple supply phases from a single group of sensors, maintaining 100% output in emergency lighting condition with or without occupancy and coping with a variety of physical installation formats for the same luminaries.

Charterhouse School | Surrey

Rexel Energy Solutions was asked to look at the project and produce a lighting design that was not only energy efficient and included the latest technology, but one that would bring the teaching environment into the 21st century, whilst maintaining the architectural integrity of this building.

Chapelfield Shopping Centre | Norwich

Energy saving replacement lamps included Philips ECO tubes & LED tubes for general use at the barrier, Philips LED fittings for the barrier piers, LED SON lamps for the car park, and Ebox voltage optimisation units to reduce power consumption even further.

Colchester Zoo | Colchester

Energy saving lighting required for a newly constructed Giraffe house at Colchester Zoo.
