Thorn provides the ingredients for Papa John’s lighting upgrade
Thorn Lighting has provided a one-stop shop for upgrading the lighting at Papa John’s new headquarters in Milton Keynes. Thorn’s brief was to achieve the upgrade to energy-efficient low-maintenance LED lighting while improving the overall illumination with the required maintained illuminance and 80% uniformity. The target was to providing an overall lighting efficiency for the building of not less than 60 luminaire lumens per circuit watt and provide various lux levels for different areas.
To increase energy savings, automatic detection with a daylight link facility has been provided where daylight is available.
The detached facility covers about 4600 m2 and has undergone a £2.1 million refurbishment that has seen the office completely stripped of its previous amenities and replaced with modern installations and exteriors. All the electrical installation, air conditioning, ventilation and toilets were stripped out.
Thorn worked with Halligan Associates of Birmingham to come up with a design that included 600 mm-square Omega Pro ED recessed luminaires and Chalice LED recessed downlights to provide 450 lx in the office areas.
Other Thorn products used include Glacier LED modern and efficient decorative LED pendant luminaire with high lumen packages in the reception area.
Surface Aquaforce IP65-rated LED luminaires were used in the dough room to provide the required 500 lx.
Thorn luminaires have also been used in the board room, meeting rooms, plant rooms, server rooms, staircases, kitchens and toilets.
