Greenshields JCB is one of the South East’s premier dealers of JCB construction and industrial machinery with a large depot based in Farnham, Surrey where O&C were contracted to install an efficient LED lighting system at the depot’s staff car park.
Prior to the work beginning, the site was a clearing in a heavy wooded area with no street lighting nearby and with no effective lighting or cable supply points. A lighting layout plan was done to confirm the lights would give the desired light levels across the car park. The work involved supplying and installing 4 metre lamp posts with double LED flood lights fitted with daylight sensors and a time clock fitted in the depot office. Implementing this solution required a site management plan to not only erect the lamp posts but also digging trenches between the posts and connect to a central control system. The final result was a properly lit car park area using high output IP rated LED flood lights with a control system giving the client full management of their lighting solution. PIR detectors were considered but not used on this site as the wild life would cause the lights to be constantly switching on when not required.
