Shining a Spotlight on Commercial Lighting with NVC

Shining a Spotlight on Commercial Lighting with NVC

The importance of lighting in commercial applications is multi-faceted – from fulfilling legal safety obligations to impacting aesthetics, there are many things to consider when choosing a lighting system that best suits your required purpose.

Whether specifying for a retail space, office complex or warehousing unit, the right lighting is a critical component in the functionality of a building and its outdoor spaces.

Consider the requirements of a retail space – from ensuring the car park is well lit for shoppers to easily navigate the area and feel safe, to the overall running costs of the lighting and the financial impact this has on the shopping centre’s profitability.

Similarly, in a warehouse or office environment, lighting can play a major role in safety and even the performance and well-being of staff.

There are also legal requirements around testing and maintenance of lighting systems to be factored in.

NVC Lighting, one of UK’s leading suppliers of high quality and cost-effective commercial LED lighting solutions, works with a wide range of customers across commercial sectors to ensure their lighting systems are cost efficient, safe, and effective.

Phil Brown, Product & Marketing Director, said: “Lighting can be taken for granted by end-users – in the commercial space that could be shoppers visiting a retail park or staff in a warehouse or office space.

“However, for facilities managers, there are many benefits to be gained from paying close attention to the specifics of your lighting system.

“Energy efficiency and its associated cost-savings is probably the top consideration we are seeing from customers right now when energy costs and sustainability are so dominant in the conversation.

“Of course, lighting also plays a major role in the safety of those using a building and there are legal obligations that must be met in this regard.”

An example of where NVC Lighting has worked in partnership with electrical contractors and the end-user to achieve cost savings is at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent.

Reducing environmental impact is central to Bluewater management’s business strategy, so lighting technologies needed to be energy efficient to contribute to Bluewater’s aim of reducing its energy and carbon intensity by 40% by 2030.

One of the UK’s largest shopping centres with an annual footfall of 28 million, products from NVC Lighting have been used extensively at the site, including around 7,000 NVC GREENLAND IK 10, IP66 rated, non-corrosive, impact and chemical resistant industrial luminaires, which have been installed throughout Bluewater’s car parks and back of house facilities.

NVC Lighting has also worked with Future Publishing to improve its office environment and slash energy usage by 50%.

Future publishes content and organises events that span specialist interests across a wide variety of topics for business and consumer audiences around the world.

Its office in Paddington is home to over 120 staff, many of whom work at basement level where there is no access to natural light.

This means that the lighting is operating all day every day, so its output needs to optimise the illumination and ambience of the area. And, with the price of energy, constantly increasing, it was a key requirement to attempt to cut their usage too.

More than 70 DALLAS fittings have been installed across Future’s basement and across six further floors, providing a more suitable working environment and reducing energy usage.

NVC Lighting's comprehensive product range spans commercial lighting for indoor and outdoor use, encompassing LED panels, downlights, surface and suspended lighting, road and landscape lighting, as well as industrial and emergency lighting. Its products serve diverse sectors, including schools, offices, industrial sites, the NHS, universities, and residential projects.

NVC specialises in CE/UKCA approved LED lighting for commercial applications,
supplying a wide range of internal, external and emergency lighting together with a choice of control systems, sensors and battery options many offering lithium technology.
