Ards Business Centre, located in Newtownards, is set up as a social enterprise that assists the formation of new businesses and the development and support of existing Small Medium Enterprises. Due to the number of tenants, the site lighting was constantly being used. Meteor Lite were asked to come up with a solution that would rectify this.


We worked closely alongside the client to ensure that all details had been covered before the work commenced. Our solution was to use office fittings that not only reduced the energy consumption, but also increased the lighting levels throughout. Most of the fittings were stylish 18W recessed down lights. In the main communal areas we also added PIR (presence detection) sensors in order to further reduce energy consumption.


The new LED lighting system has allowed Ards Business Centre to save around 84,000kW of electricity per year which will significantly reduce their expenditure on electricity due to reducing the running power by approximately 75%
