Major Supermarket, Pimlico

In October 2017, we were instructed to carry out works for a major supermarket based in Central London.

Our experienced engineers stripped out four boilers and replaced these with Ideal Tormax 100 boilers, as well as installing a Megaflo 500 litre commercial hot water cylinder.

We used materials including Gebrit Mapress pipe and fittings, as well as Grundfos twin head pumps, which are more reliable and energy-efficient.

Low carbon steel was used for the heating system, which is not only better for the environment but is proven to be a better product due to its corrosion resistance. Stainless steel was used on the gas supply. By using Ideal frame headers and the Gebrit system as opposed to traditional materials, the installation time was substantially improved.

How energy efficient lighting can save your business money

We might be on our way to summer but in spite of the fact that days are getting lighter we’ll be using lights for a while yet because let’s face it; the days are still dark (morning and evening especially). But that doesn’t mean we can’t be thrifty!

Lights left on at night and a lack of attention to the number and placement of fittings in an office or business premises can not only be the cause of light pollution (no, really!) but is likely to hike energy costs way beyond what is necessary.

According to the buffs at the Energy Saving Trust; for the individual business, a lighting upgrade can bring quick payback. On average, 25 per cent of an organisation’s electricity costs come from lighting but a switch to lower-consuming LEDs can reduce this amount, in some cases by as much as 80 per cent.

A further benefit of LED lighting (as opposed to other options) is the controllability factor, which is great in an office where, for example, lights left on when everyone has gone home can be dimmed or even fully switched off remotely to make huge savings on overheads.

Whether you’re a coffee shop, a school, an office block or the local Oxfam, the benefits of LED lighting are tantamount to exceptional savings. Businesses and many local authorities are currently engaged in LED upgrades, and if you’d like to find out more the Energy Trust is running a series of workshops in 2018 through the Premium Light Pro project. The workshops aim to equip installers, planners and decision-makers with the knowledge and tools to drive an LED upgrade plan to completion – CLICK HERE to register.
