Luceco relights Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
Luceco has worked with Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust to relight areas of Wexham Park Hospital located in Berkshire. The hospital was built on the site of a Victorian mansion known as Wexham Park; the design led to an award from the Royal Institute of British Architects. After an exhaustive selection process, Luceco was engaged to provide a detailed survey for Wexham Park and Frimley Park Hospitals becoming a key supplier to Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which covers Wexham Park, Frimley Park and Heatherwood Hospitals.
LED LuxPanels from Luceco were the principle luminaires utilised due to their energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, being quick and easy to install with remote ‘plug and play’ drivers. Nigel Ford, Project Manager from Luceco said: The lighting design, supply and installation of the LED luminaire retrofit refurbishment required precision planning and contractors had to work within limited timeframes, to ensure minimal disruption to patients and medical personnel . He continued, In many areas we had to work with the existing suspended ceiling grid which involved the fabrication of custom luminaire fixing brackets to ensure the speed of installation could be maintained and the retrofit programme was not delayed due to issues on site .
Other circulation areas to benefit from the LED lighting refurbishment included corridors and consultancy rooms lit with the Academy luminaire. Academy benefits from an opal prism diffuser with screw secured endcaps and can be surface mounted or suspended. It also has a central cable entry with BESA fixings spaced at 600mm, so are ideal for retrofitting traditional fluorescent lamped fittings in healthcare environments.
