We are always looking for ways to improve the environment for our customers – as well as providing business accommodation that supports the environment. That’s why – after a successful trial – we have converted all the lights at Greenway Business Centre in Harlow to the latest technology on the market.

We originally trialled the LED lightbulbs last September; our customer Office Scape Ltd kindly agreed to be the guinea pigs to provide a first-hand review to examine whether they were a viable option. It took two days to convert their previous lights to the new LED ones. The customer was offered three choices of lighting tone: daylight, cool and soft. Having this ability is perfect for seasonal changes and Office Scape were able to change the ambiance in the office depending on the weather.

The changeover proved successful: the staff really noticed the difference and were satisfied by the new LED lights. With this thumbs up, we commissioned the conversion of a third of the lighting within Greenway to LED lights, including all the offices and studios. Professional electrical, security and data contractors, Sigma Networks, undertook the three-week project; a Greenway customer, this meant we were able to support one of our customers whilst helping the environment.

The feedbacks from the units has been very positive for example customer Orla Healthcare who said ‘We are delighted with the upgrading to LED lights in our offices. The improvement to the lighting is very noticeable and has been very much welcomed. We were not inconvenienced by the minor work involved and thanks to all in Capital Space for the smooth planning and execution of the work.’

Lorraine Lee, Centre Manager for the Greenway Business Centre, said: “This has been a significant investment into the centre and has been great boost for all units that have been converted – it has really improved the environment for both the customers and us. We’ve even converted the reception and the communal areas to the daylight LEDs, and this has made a real difference to the energy levels of the staff”.

We’re now looking to roll out LED lights over six of our other centres during the course of 2017.
