The customer requirement on this installation was to repair the existing lighting infrastructure from water damage and make a significant energy saving to the chiller deck lighting.


Project Detail:

  • Completion Date – March 2017
  • Department – Electrical Installations
  • Project Value - £70,000
  • Manufacturers Used - NVC Lighting

Scope of Works:


Installation of LED lights, PIR’s and relevant cabling.




Replacing lighting with a suitable LED replacement, each fitting to have PIR sensor so only lighting within the occupied areas would trigger. Thermal PIR’s were offered by Berkeley Installations over microwave sensors which are prone to picking up false movement around chillers and therefore switching on without a requirement, wasting valuable electricity.


During Works


Deliveries we monitored due to the changes in materials required (moving from Microwave to Thermal PIR’s) caused delayed lead times but did not impact the completion date. Ongoing updates were made to the project plan and to the customer to fall in line with material delivery. Additional labour was not required to bring the installation date in on time.



Project completed on time and monitored by Berkeley Installations and the customer to ensure the savings are being made as per our projected comparisons.
