Sustainability has been a central core of our approach to lighting design before it became the agenda item that it is today.

A good example of this the PowerGen Headquarters Building in Coventry which was completed in 1995. Using a combination of daylight and efficient artificial lighting methods, the lighting energy load at PowerGen rivals many schemes being completed today whilst at the same time providing a healthy and responsive working environment.

Coming forward 20 years, projects like Bonhams also demonstrate our commitment to sustainability with every luminaire, in what is a demanding visual environment, utilises LED light sources. Within our design process we also consider aspects such as the supply chain carbon footprint, recyclable product content and forwards compatible LED sources to ensure solutions that are efficient to deliver. For EQ2, key aspects of a sustainable design include:
 

  • Our lighting design is for people. We seek to design exceptional and healthy living, working and social environments.
  • We strive for reductions in running costs by energy and maintenance efficient lighting solutions.
  • We champion the use of daylight thus reducing electricity use.

 

Put very simply, we see Sustainability as a force for good; something that drives creativity as well as technological advancement which is why it has always been a central part of our philosophy.
