An illuminating experience
Good quality lighting, manufactured in the UK, was the preferred choice of leading construction company SRW (Skanska, Raleigh, and Weatherfoil), who specified luminaires by Riegens Lighting for the new Fluor Limited Headquarters at IQ Farnborough. American owned Fluor provides engineering, procurement, construction and project management services on a global basis.
The four-building complex of approximately 210,000 square feet at Farnborough was chosen as the ideal base for the company’s new headquarters because of its easy links to motorways and close proximity to London.
Riegens sleek and elegant Arbos I recessed luminaire was used throughout the main office areas. Offering a good uniform light output with direct/indirect illumination and a twin light source (40W or 50W T5 lamps), the 600mm x 600mm luminaire has a dropped perforated central unit design. Other luminaires in the range include Arbos IF with a central flush perforated diffuser or Arbos DF with a twin flush unit. All the Arbos range comes complete with HF or HF emergency control gear and other options that are available on request.
For the core warehouse areas, Riegens DL-ECO energy efficient downlighters using compact fluorescent lamps have been installed. DL-ECO is one of the most energy efficient luminaires on the market today. The luminaire uses either 14W or 17W lamps which make it possible to achieve 25% energy reductions when equivalent to compact lamps with high frequency controls and over 50% when compared with electromagnetic systems. In addition, the luminaires offer a significant reduction in C02 emissions with no sacrifice in performance. Easy to install and maintain, the unit has a simple twist and lock connection.
