Homebase – LED Lighting and BMS

Client: Homebase

Value: £22k

Duration: 3 weeks

Role: M&E Consultancy; Project Manager; Technical Energy Centre

System / Service: LED Lighting, BMS & Controls

Project Scope

As part of the national LED lighting roll-out for Homebase, ETS was appointed to review the BeMS and control settings at their Milton Keynes store to further maximise the savings available. Milton Keynes was identified as a re-brand store, therefore required a tailored approach to ensure the lighting and control settings reflected the new store design.

The existing T5 lights on the sales floor were replaced to LED and a Harvard Technologies EyeNut integrated wireless lighting control solution was installed. The new controls allowed the store to set lighting levels to the exact specification of the new lighting design and exploit daylight harvesting to provide additional savings.

Key Challenges

Works had to be completed in a single phase at night to ensure trade was not impacted. ETS was instrumental in coordinating the works through close consultation with client representatives and subcontractors. Harvard Technologies wireless controls ensured installation was swift and more cost effective than alternative solutions available on the market.

Added Value / Achievements

As this was a re-brand store, the size of the shop floor was increased, which resulted in an increase in energy consumption. Despite this, compared to the previous years’ consumption, a total saving of 10% (23,422 kWh), was achieved within 4 months and the maximum demand was reduced by 28%. This equated to an annual saving of £8,783.25 and a ROI of 2.5 years.
