OFFICE LIGHTING THAT ENHANCES FLEXIBILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY
Office space is developing at rapid speeds. The traditional office design is being challenged by introducing new facilities and spaces. Who would have thought twenty years ago that an underground bicycle storage space to accommodate 200+ bikes would now be a normal part of an office space?
Driven by productivity research, design, and fashion to some extent, the office sector is witnessing the most dynamic changes for decades. Facilitating all these changes, lighting for offices has become a variable covering a range of applications from staircases, communal areas, and executive boardrooms.
Rules and Regulations
TICKING THE RIGHT BOXES
The office spaces are restricted by lighting guidance and regulations. These are not legally enforceable, but it is advisable to follow them. There are several regulations for new and existing buildings applicable to office spaces. Perhaps the most important one being the CIBSE LG7, the purpose of this guide is to ensure adequate levels of lighting but to also provide a stimulating working environment for office workers.
Understanding all guidelines can be sometimes daunting, but our team will make sure to meet all your requirements for the regulations. It's what we do.
Well-Being in the Workspace
THINKING OF REAL PEOPLE
Lighting has a significant effect on the human body and has been proven to enhance productivity in the workplace. Often a first victim to value engineering and overlooked by employers, lighting can make employees feel either uncomfortable, demotivated or happy and performing. With productivity gains and improvement of concentration to be made with a help of better quality lighting, it’s not difficult to see how office lighting can have a significant impact.
Correct product specification for a specific task can support the activities. Just the right colour temperature can make a difference. Our lighting designers will support you in product specification ensuring the product you would like to use for your project is the right one.
OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
Energy efficiency is a normal topic of conversation when specifying luminaires for any modern office scheme. Using the latest LED technology is a given. Longer lifespan and less maintenance contribute to the overhead reduction in the long term. 299 Lighting are proud to present some of the most efficient luminaires on the market, making use of the latest LED technology available. Having expertise in designing schemes for BREEAM approved buildings as well as considering ECA compliance, our team can assist in achieving these benefits.
If you are still thinking about upgrading your current lighting, don't think any longer! Fluorescent lighting producing up to measly 60lm/W is not the message you would want to send to your clients or staff.
SAY NO TO FLICKERING LIGHTING
There is nothing more annoying, than a flickering light fitting with shifting colour temperature …. on its last legs. Visual comfort can improve concentration, capability, performance and wellbeing. Correct specification means comfortable light levels are achieved. Quality lighting is just a part of the story. Making sure that you are distributing enough lighting on the walls and ceilings, will pay off in the long term through the visual comfort. Gloomy and under-lit spaces cause eyestrain and hardly make people excited about coming to work.
WHAT'S THE MESSAGE YOU ARE SENDING OUT
Not only does the lighting provide a functional aspect, it's also a crucial element when it comes to representing the look of your company. If you wish to portray your brand as modern and technology savvy, a professional lighting scheme with smooth dimming and PIR controls will enhance the interior of your office. And if you want to take things even further, lighting can make an abstract connection with your company logo. There is so much you can do if you spend time specifying your design and talking to our experts!
ADD A SPLASH OF COLOUR
Office lighting can have a personality. It doesn’t have to just be anodised, white or black. We agree, that black is cool and yes, it is currently on trend, but there are so many other colours waiting to be explored!
Supercharge your design by adding a splash of colour or a vinyl wrap finish. It is all possible and we can help you achieve some outstanding schemes.
