ETDE gets GE treatment

13 September 2013

The southern offices of ETDE - the energy and services division of Bouygues Construction, has recently undergone a full lighting refurbishment. The installation of GE Lighting’s LED solutions helped to improve greatly the aesthetics of the building cutting energy use at the same time.

As the energy and services arm of Bouygues Consruction, installing a low energy lighting solution was incredibly important. However at the same time, the ETDE team wanted to create a contemporary aesthetic for its office building in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

As such, GE Lighting installed one of its latest LED innovations, the recessed Lumination 600sq luminaire as well as suspended Lumination 1200 fittings to bring a sleek, modern look and feel to the office. GE Lighting’s Lumination has a long rated life, typically lasting 50,000 hours at L85. With fewer fittings, Lumination also offers a 42% reduction in energy, making it ideal for use in this situation.

Complementing this, the main ETDE reception area also features a series of fixed GE Infusion Downlights and directional GU10 LED’s. GE’s Infusion LED module combines a high colour render index, with CRI ranges to Ra>90, with a beam intensity equal to 35W AR111 HID, which results in up to 50% less energy being required.

Simon Hayman, Head of Operational Support at ETDE said: “The GE Lighting solution fits in well with the ethos of our company – we recognise that energy performance is a central issue but wanted to ensure aesthetics were not lost as a result of the installation. We’re very pleased with the finished result and are incredibly impressed with the 60% energy saving that GE Lighting has helped us to achieve. What’s more, the payback period is only 2.8 months so we’re delighted with the solution that’s been put in place.”

GE Lighting’s Lumination range is growing. There is an increasingly wide range of lighting solutions that are perfect for use in a whole host of settings. Lumination is in itself quite versatile – available both as a recessed and suspended model, the fitting is designed to work discretely with the surrounding building, making it perfect for most commercial applications.
