In 2014, FUTURE Designs developed a specific fluorescent lighting system for installation in this iconic office space. This was one of the final major projects where FUTURE Designs provided fluorescent lighting prior to the advent of solid state LED becoming the lighting medium of choice.

The client’s decision to invest in the latest sustainable technology (LED) and product reuse which not only hugely reduces the energy (carbon) use within the premises but reduces the extraction from the earth’s crust.

FUTURE Designs have succeeded in winning the contract to adapt circa 6,000 previously supplied luminaires to latest generation LED under their carbon careful™ initiative utilising the existing luminaire carcass.

The energy and carbon savings in the adaptions are circa 61 percent compared to the original fluorescent lighting system and additionally the reuse of the existing luminaire carcasses will save 7.9 tons of mild steel being produced with an immeasurable quantity of carbon saving from extracting precious minerals from the earth’s crust.

This project takes the total of office space reilluminated under the carbon careful™ initiative to over four million sq ft to date.
