The Project
The existing lighting at Garioch Sports Centre was not in line with Scottish Highland Football League standards. This meant the facility could not host regional tournaments. EGG Lighting’s objective was to change that, by making the lighting compliant.

The Solution
The Garioch centre received funding under the Scottish Government Climate Challenge Fund. To meet all standards, we carried our 5 steps to successful lighting plan. This included a full commercial lighting design, supply and install solution. High, quality, uniform light over the field was the priority. This was achieved through adjusting the beam angle on the luminaires. A timer was installed to alleviate effects of excessive inrush current with these high power LEDs.

As a functioning sports centre, the pitch was kept open while the work was carried out. Our team of NICEIC certified electricians were able to complete all onsite work in under one week.

We were delighted that EGG lighting was approved on to our lighting framework as their sustainability credentials are unmatched in the local industry. For the first time we had fittings from one venue stripped back and rebuilt with LED and installed in another. These fittings are also modular so we can just replace parts when needed rather than the whole unit in the future. This saves an enormous amount of carbon – no need to manufacture virgin plastic, ship heavy components across the globe or dispose of casings in landfill. The new lighting will last around 10 years and across the three venues, should save us £15k in electricity a year and reduce our annual carbon footprint by over 20 tonnes CO2e, all while vastly improving our customers’ experience.

The Project

The team at Holiday Inn Theatrelands identified the need to improve the building’s eco-friendliness, and to modernise their facilities lighting in line with their customers expectations. Within their phased refurbishment plan, upgrading their fluorescent luminaires to LED was a key issue to address.

The Solution

It can be challenging to find the perfect retrofit for existing facilities lighting. So, we built it.
As commercial lighting manufacturers we supplied and installed our own ‘Carluke’ bulkhead luminaires for this project. Then, we optimised their lighting usage with microwave sensors to further increase their savings. When nobody is present, the staircase bulkheads dim to 10% of the total light output, minimising wastage.

All schedule was built around the client. We launched the commercial lighting upgrade in phases to fit with their refurbishment plan, giving priority to the most critical areas.

John Gannon
Maintenance Manager at Holiday Inn Express

Since [the first project] we have come back to work with EGG lighting twice more, and have always received a friendly and professional service. They have been very prepared to tailor the contract to what we need at the time; providing their own installers or supplying the lighting directly to us. We have seen a notable drop in our energy bills, and the finished installation adds to the modern and eco-aware image our customers associate with Holiday Inn.

West Dumbartonshire Leisure

The Situation
WD leisure received funding to modernise their three main leisure facilities: the Play Drome in Clydebank, the Meadow Centre in Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven Swimming Pool in Alexandria. In addition to investing in new equipment, they came to EGG lighting for consultation on lighting technology that would provide a legacy of energy savings for years to come.

The Solution

Some key considerations included high ingress protection ratings for the Vale of Leven swimming and pool changing rooms, and low glare in the gym facility. EGG identified the right bulkheads, spotlights and panels that would yield the greatest long term gains for this client. In total we installed 110 30W LED lights, replacing 120W fluorescent bulkheads. We calculated that our panel lights had almost three times the lifespan of the old fluorescents.
