Venture Lighting’s new Rio street lighting kits have been installed at the Cirrus Building in Glasgow Airport Business Park, resulting in an improvement in general light output and significant reduction in running costs.

The Cirrus Building, owned by Capita Symons, was originally using 250W SON lighting within its car park and this had to be upgraded and maintained regularly by the building management company (E C G Facilities Services). With running costs at an all time high, E C G were looking for a more sustainable lighting solution and discussed options with a local specifier and installer, Bradstone Lighting of Glasgow. Calculations showed that by using Venture’s Rio kits the cost of upgrading the lighting would halve, when compared to installing new luminaries, and the Cirrus project was the first installation of Rio in Scotland.

Rio kits incorporate Venture’s CM-City ceramic lamps which deliver up to 118 lumens per watt and a uniform white light, which offer a replacement for 250W HPS lamps without compromising on lighting performance. By offering a white light as compared to the yellow hue output of SON lamps, the system provides a much more aesthetically pleasing and safer environment. The lamps offer 30,000 hours life and the kit can be installed in minutes.

David Cunning of Bradstone Lighting commented, “All parties are very happy with the installation at Cirrus. The work took place over the weekend so the new lighting was in place working when employees arrived back at work on Monday morning. The new lamps have greatly improved visibility but with a much lower installed electrical load which has an estimate payback of 24 months.”
