Clogau is a second-generation family business based in Wales. Since 1989, its growing range of jewellery has captured the hearts and imaginations of jewellery lovers far and wide. Clogau chose Ineco Energy to upgrade to LED lighting within the offices at their Head Quarters.
Clogau was considering refurbishing their offices because the existing lighting was old and inefficient when they heard about the Carbon Trust’s Green Business Fund – capital contributions.
Clogau approached Ineco Energy to learn more about the possibility of upgrading to LED Lighting and the opportunity to benefit from a non-repayable capital contribution made the decision to upgrade to LEDs an easy one.
Clogau Gold is a family jewellery business based in Rhyl, Wales. For over 30 years, they have created fine jewellery from rare Welsh Gold. They were experiencing poor light levels and high maintenance costs for their existing fluorescent lights, so Ineco Energy proposed an upgrade in their offices to offer brighter lighting.
During a detailed survey of their offices, we captured room dimensions and assessed each existing lighting fitting. This provided a clear picture of their existing environment and its energy consumption. Our design team undertook a bespoke lighting design for a variety of rooms with different uses. For example, the lighting required in a canteen is quite different to that in a corridor or a manufacturing environment. As a result, appropriate lighting was provided for the area used, in accordance with CIBSE guidelines. We selected high quality, UK manufactured LED light fittings, which enabled us to reduce the number of fittings by over 20%.
Clogau invited several suppliers to quote for the works but selected Ineco Energy as the accredited supplier of choice because our solution was designed for efficiency; to provide the optimum light levels, using the least number of fittings to deliver the greatest return. As with all of our projects, we aim to complete all works outside of office hours to minimise disruption to the business. In this case, all work was completed without disturbing the team during their working day.
Ineco Energy assisted Clogau with an application for funding. As a result, they obtained a non-repayable capital contribution towards the project. This not only reduced the upfront capital cost of the work, but also reduced the payback time, delivering an even better value project for the team at Clogau.
