Goldsmith Court – Main Issues

Goldsmith Court is a very large Student Accommodation with 360 bedsits for Nottingham Trent University situated in the City Centre in Nottingham.

The Student Housing Manager Lisa McCollum wanted to improve lighting in the corridors, communal and kitchen areas, the lighting particularly dark and dingy. Energy costs were also high with corridor lighting switched on 24/7.
The old Fluorescent Emergency Lights were also failing and they required additional units to comply with new regulations.

The Solution

Corridor and stairwells were all fitted with Microwave sensor automatic On & Off LED
bulkhead lights. On stairwells we reduced the number of fittings by 30% incorporating emergency lighting into a high efficiency LED Bulkhead light.
The corridors communal rooms and facility rooms were transformed with the bright clean
automatic Led lights. All the emergency lights were replaced with LED Bulkheads and the
LED’s bringing the building blocks up to BS5266 guidelines.

All lights were supplied in 4500k daylight with span life 50,000 hours.
Overall the site is saving over £12,909 per year with a payback in just 20.3 months
There is no maintenance for LED lights. The lifetime CO2e Saving is 576 Tons

Our team of professional lighting fitters and electricians completed the project within the planned 5 days.
