Sector: Recruitment Agency

Building size: 175 m2

The challenge

Sharples Davies is a recruitment consultancy, specialising in placing candidates successfully into vacancies within the construction industry. They operate from an office in a period Victorian building, and the senior management team felt the time was right to design and extend the office for business growth. They wanted the finished workspace to provide their clients with high-quality meeting rooms, interview rooms and the latest video conferencing facilities for remote interviewing, using smart technology. Impressing clients, supporting candidates and providing their staff with a smart and healthy environment to work in were essential considerations.

Our solution

We installed a comprehensive range of both modern and traditional LED luminaire fixtures that allowed Sharples Davies to achieve their vision. The heritage of the original building space was dramatically enhanced through pre-programmed, dynamic lighting scenes. A custom made server room facility was designed and built in the basement of the refurbished building to underpin the infrastructure that would ensure reliability. The installation of the intelligent LED lighting solution that runs over structured data cabling, using low voltage DC power now fully supports the smart facility while providing significant energy savings.

The benefits

The versatility and simplicity of the intelligent lighting solution have allowed Sharples Davies to optimise all rooms across the company. Each workspace can be reconfigured as required, enabling them to enhance each environment with a different lighting scene further to complement its specific use. The organisation now operates within a smart building that records the temperature of all rooms, displays the real-time costs of running the lighting in each room and automatically reduces the light levels. In the future, as technology develops, they have a future- proof system that enables them to keep up with further advancements, ensuring they stay one step ahead of their competitors.
