Award-winning building uses energy-efficient lighting

The eco-friendly headquarters of architects Watson Batty in Guiseley, Leeds, employs a lighting scheme comprising a variety of energy-efficient luminaires from Cooper Lighting. The purpose-built three-storey building has picked up a number of awards for its innovative design and strong emphasis on sustainability features.

Award-winning building uses energy-efficient lighting

Featuring slim-line profile that measures just 66mm in depth, Synthesis luminaires are constructed from extruded aluminium with a choice of finishes. They are supplied with two 1.5m-long yoked suspension wires, which can be adjusted to length using an innovative clutch mechanism.
Various other products from Cooper’s Crompton Lighting range were also supplied for different parts of the building.

The company recognised the importance of minimising energy consumption while creating a well-lit working environment, and different luminaires were selected according to the requirements of each area.

The building has no conventional suspended ceilings so the main open-plan offices are illuminated by the company’s Synthesis range of suspended fluorescent luminaires which aid compliance with
the CIBSE LG7 guide by providing the requisite balanced lighting using a wide-distribution lens for uniform upward illumination, combined with a choice of louvres for direct downward illumination. In addition, Synthesis luminaires use twin T5 lamps (28W or 35W) and high-frequency control gear to maximise energy efficiency.
