Historically Distribution Centre and Retail Stores energy and lighting costs have always been something that had been classified as another of those “fixed costs”. In many distributions centres, the lighting levels are also suboptimal due to the age of the equipment and degradation. Advancements in technology over the last few years have significantly changed and continues to change that old model. All businesses understand both the environmental and cost benefits of modern LED lighting systems. Simply put LED lighting units use 60% less energy to deliver similar or even greater levels of lighting.
Maximising savings and benefits.
The principles of LED lighting are simple and the range of lighting solutions available in the market place is huge. However, the performance value and quality and solution delivery of these products vary tremendously. With implementation costs and maintenance costs also being a significant part of this investment it is important to get it right first time.
At Sigma we have worked with manufacturers and lighting engineers over the last decade to really understand how to use these solutions and new technologies in the retail and distribution centre environment. Our experts can help you optimise these technological advances to deliver the maximum savings and improvements in the working environment.
In many DC’s opportunities exist to reduce costs and improve lighting levels.
We have lighting experts, and combined with our operational expertise, working in distribution centres and retail environments who can help you understand the best solutions for your business. Whether it’s in the distribution centre in the high bay racking areas, picking, packing or dispatch areas or you are a retailer looking for the right in-store solution, we can help. Our aim is to help you maximise energy savings, improve the working or customer environment and minimise all ongoing maintenance costs. We can design, trial, select and implement the best value solution for your business offering a full range of services. We want you to have the best solution possible and that’s why we offer:
♦ A full site audit to understand the right design and solution to optimise the benefits from C02 reduction, lighting level impact, energy and maintenance cost savings.
♦ We draw up your full business case with ROI and full costings.
♦ We can set up an on-site trial system at no cost with full energy monitoring and data analysis.
♦ We can fully manage the complete implementation of your new lighting solutions.
♦ We have approved grant funding available with grants of up to £10,000.
Understanding your needs.
LED lighting units are an off the shelf purchase from multiple electrical wholesalers. Establishing the best lighting solutions for a distribution centre or retail store is a completely different story. Correctly determining the right control systems, LED units and design configuration to provide the best operational lighting levels whilst optimising cost benefits requires a certain level of expertise. With site surveys carried out by lighting experts and subsequent product and system specification proposals with full costings and business cases, you can be confident that you are getting the very best site-specific design solution.
We have designed our process to ensure that we not only identify and design the right solution for you but that we efficiently manage the implementation from the manufacturer to your full operational functionality.
Trials and measurements.
In some cases, it makes good sense to physically trial and measure solutions in situ. Whilst mathematical calculations for energy savings are robust, sometimes you just want to see the solution in place to really understand the full benefits on-site and in particular the effects on the working environment. For this, we have devised several trial options that allow you to measure the hard facts and see first hand the working impact. Trails can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that “claimed” savings and benefits will be delivered and that energy savings in excess of 90% can be delivered to your site.
Energy costs can be reduced by up to 95% with correctly configured systems.
Fully integrated systems.
Maximising performance always requires the ability to monitor, manage and review. Our systems provide precisely that with full transparency and visibility. You are able to control and fully optimise your lighting levels and usage. Using a simple web interface and modern wireless connectivity this is a seamless process for control, management and ongoing maintenance.
Only fully integrated systems deliver maximum benefit.
