Set in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, Caldecotte Lake Business Park in Milton Keynes offers 8 detached office buildings in an exceptional natural environment, refurbished to high standard.
With office floor space totalling in excess of 200,000 sq ft, Caldecotte Lake Business Park is occupied by many National and International companies enjoying the benefits of excellent facilities, beautiful grounds and a convenient central location with excellent road, rail and air links.
Building 4, also known as Wenthworth House, has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment with a remodelled reception area and high-quality office accommodation over two floor plates of open plan space totalling approximately 1,983 sqm (21,348 sq ft).
Approached by the architectural practice Spratley & Partners in December 2017, we have been involved in designing the lighting scheme for this high spec Cat A refurbishment from the early design stages. The design team was later joined by two consultant teams working on behalf of the client and architect.
The 299 team have created the lighting layout and product specification for this Cat A office space refurbishment. Multiple site visits and product reviews have been carried out. Full lighting design, lux level calculations including the emergency lighting plan were produced alongside 3D renders of the space to help visualise the effect of the new lighting.
The scheme boasts plenty of daylight thanks to the extensive refurbishment and remodelling. The reception area uses architectural feature lighting and linear lighting to enhance the contemporary geometrical interior design.
Featuring the suspended architectural profile, the OKA Suspended is installed diagonally across the space, the lighting guides the visitors towards the reception desk. The Oka’s high output allows less luminaires to be used to illuminate a space, which is ideal for achieving clean and minimalist design schemes. The design of the OKA also compliments the RYDAL Suspended which have been used as the main architectural feature luminaires on the scheme. Both RYDAL and OKA enhance the black details of the interior design and the wooden joinery.
The new lighting was supplied over 2 stages to the satisfaction of the client. The result is an attractive high spec LG7 office lighting scheme for a Cat A refurbishment, offering flexibility and efficiency to future tenants.
