 As part of its commitment to minimising the environmental impact of its activities and operations, Parkdean was keen to investigate the potential for energy efficient lighting and invited Envirolux to develop an energy efficient lighting scheme for the facilities at Southerness, a park located on the west coast of Scotland.

These facilities included restaurants, kitchens, bars, nightclub, shops, leisure areas including swimming pool, as well as office and staff areas. Working with the local management, Envirolux’s detailed survey work allowed the design of a solution balancing energy efficiency and fitness for purpose with minimising maintenance, utilising a mix of Envirolux’s LED and T5 high frequency fluorescent lighting.

With a solution delivering savings of over 60% yet meeting strict payback criteria, Parkdean then asked Envirolux to develop solutions for a further 14 parks nationwide. Completion of this survey work, coupled with a flexible manufacturing capacity allowed Envirolux to meet Parkdean’s desired installation programme.

Completion of this initial phase will deliver savings of over £60,000 just on energy costs, along with a reduction of 360 tonnes in carbon emissions each year.

Mike Wilmot, Financial Director, said:

“Envirolux’s in depth approach to understanding our operations has allowed them to design comprehensive lighting solutions against strict criteria. Delivery of these has allowed Parkdean to maximise our return on expenditure with an excellent level of energy savings and significant savings on maintenance costs.”

Envirolux offer a complete lighting service, able to design, manufacture and deliver custom built solutions using the latest technology. Our bespoke approach can be tailored to balance requirements such as the aesthetics of the location, maintenance intervals and energy conservation, while providing an improvement in the quality and level of lighting.
