Energy-efficient LED lighting from Powerlite Fitzgerald creates aesthetically-pleasing, low-maintenance solution
The new lighting is helping to create a more-welcoming reception and entrance area at Hairmyres Hospital in Scotland
Powerlite Fitzgerald has been selected by Hairmyres University Hospital to update the outdated and ineffective lighting in the car park and reception areas.
Founded in 1919, the hospital, based in Lanarkshire, Scotland wanted to upgrade its existing car park and interior reception lighting.
And Powerlite Fitzgerald was approached by Bradstone Lighting to provide an onsite survey and lighting design scheme.
Hairmyres Hospital was looking to create a safer car park environment for their staff and visitors.
It also wanted to reduce the running and maintenance costs associated with high-level lighting.
Powerlite Fitzgerald was able to assist in creating a car park with a more-uniform spread of light to reduce the light pollution while giving Hairmyres more control over directional lighting to give better coverage.
The firm also worked with Bradstone Lighting to create a more-welcoming entrance/reception area for patients and visitors by installing lighting solutions with warmer colour renderings, which was previously unachievable with its old discharge fittings.
Upgrades to lighting in the car park has made it safer for patients, visitors and staff
Externally, Powerlite Fitzgerald proposed the 70W visage lighting heads to give Hairmyres instant light and more control, as discharge requires a cooling period.
And, due to the 24/7 need of the car park, which has constant pedestrian and traffic movement, access was often difficult to orchestrate.
However, Powerlite Fitzgerald was able to conduct an out-of-hours install to ensure there was no disruption to services.
Ben Arscott, sales director at Powerlite Fitzgerald, said: “We are delighted that we were able to assist Hairmyres in creating a safe parking and reception environment for staff and visitors with directional lighting.
“We were glad to provide suitable luminaires to replace their existing lighting and allow Hairmyres to reduce their running and maintenance costs significantly in each area.”
