“Bournemouth Airport was one of the first airports in the UK to achieve carbon-neutral ground operations in 2012 and we are extremely proud of our achievements to date. We continue to invest in low-carbon technology to minimise our carbon footprint as part of Manchester Airport Group’s sustainability agenda for all its airports.
“By replacing the lighting in car parks one and two with new low-energy LED fittings, we have been able to save energy, cost and better the journey for our customers. It is incredibly important to us, to work with a company that understands our needs and MHA Lighting have a proven track record when looking at airport lighting.” Michael Twomey, Head of Technical Services at Bournemouth Airport.
“We sought a new lighting solution after the costs associated with replacing our existing fluorescents with like-for-like became too much. We conducted an extensive procurement process and selected MHA Lighting because of their reputation and proven ability to design and install bespoke projects at other convenience stores.”
“The new LED lighting has considerably improved lighting levels and is significantly reducing our on-going energy costs, which for me is essential. I was particularly impressed with how vibrant the produce looks and the reduced flicker on CCTV monitors which has dramatically enhanced clarity of the CTTV footage.” Andy Hill, Hillsnews owner and Londis Retail partner.
“Lighting is a significant part of us achieving our carbon footprint reduction goals. When we set out on this project we wanted to find solutions that not only improved light quality but also significantly reduced our energy consumption. MHA Lighting has been able to offer a solution that ticks these boxes. Not only are we seeing real cost savings on our energy bills but the light colour, output and uniformity is superb and our staff are benefiting from the improved lighting. With the integration of various intelligent controls we have made further reductions on our energy usage and given that the units will run maintenance free for seven years we will also decrease our maintenance costs. Overall we are delighted with the installation and are now looking at further projects aimed at improving our office lighting.” Pete Osborne, Production Engineering and Facilities Manager for Scott Safety
“Often no-one manufacturers the luminaire we want. We’re always finding that there are areas that don’t seem to be covered by the main manufacturers. For example, when we did our car parks we struggled to find a true retrofit replacement for a Low Bay application and we struggled with the flexibility of some of the major manufacturers. As a result we ended up working with local manufacturer MHA Lighting as they offered us a bespoke solution. For those niche areas where we struggled, we’ve been quite lucky in that we can now work closely with MHA Lighting.They have become an invaluable design outfit that can fill all the important gaps for us.” Andy Sheridan, services facilities manager at Manchester Airport
“The Grand Arcade town centre car park is one of the city’s busiest car parks so high levels of light and light uniformity are crucial to ensure customers feel safe and secure, particularly as the car park is underground. As a result, the biggest challenge for us was completing the installation with absolute minimum disruption to customers and business users who rely on the car park daily for their city centre parking. We worked closely with MHA Lighting’s installers to ensure all the necessary work was completed during quieter periods and were able to complete the project on schedule. The quality of light provided not only improves safety and security throughout, but also reduces the volume of shadows in the car park. The new lighting is more like being in natural daylight which is much more pleasant for our car park users. We are also intending to use this successful project as a benchmark to improve our energy efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint across our other car parks.” Sean Cleary, Parking Services Operations Manager
“As part of our commitment to improving the customer experience and reducing the carbon footprint of the business, the airport instructed MHA Lighting to design an LED fitting which would improve lighting levels, reliability, and reduce the on-going energy costs associated with the pre-existing lighting solution in the car parks. The result was a 45watts bespoke fitting which replaces the previous 150 watts SONS units. This will save the airport approximately 100 T/CO2 per year and significantly reduce the associated maintenance costs. The new lighting has been a great success. It was recently praised in our Park Mark Award assessment with positive feedback on its quality and how it has enhanced the area’s safety and security features, which in turn will greatly benefit our customers. We are delighted with the installation.” Terry Clarke, Energy and Sustainability project manager at Newcastle Airport
“North Devon Hospitals Trust already has an enviable standard on carbon-reduction and this is part of our continuing commitment to reduce our carbon footprint. With the new lighting system we have made significant savings to our energy bills and of course those savings will be ploughed back into clinical care. This new lighting system from MHA has really made a difference to patients too. It has created a much better atmosphere for our patients and staff. Even light and less flicker is a huge improvement for those patients with sight problems. It is vital lighting units are designed to minimise hospital infection and the maintenance free aspect assists us in delivering better maintenance services with faster reaction times to the whole hospital.“ Moses Warburton, re-development manager of NDHT
“We are delighted with the result of MHA Lighting’s recent installation, which will help us provide clean and consistent illumination in our refurbished forecourt. The quality of the LED lights also improves safety and security at the forecourt by making our CCTV much clearer. MHA Lighting completed the project quickly and with minimal disruption to our business, which, because of the volume of customers using Strensham, was essential. “ Simon Tul, CEO of Roadchef
“After several months of trialling numerous lighting technologies and designs, MHA’s bespoke retro fit solution outshone all the others. We were particularly impressed with the speed and efficiency of MHA Lighting to design, fit and test their product to our stringent criteria. The end product has more than exceeded our expectations.” Jonathan Beswick, Manchester Airport project technician
“MHA Lighting delivered a reduction in our energy costs of 78% and the installation looks outstanding. The lighting really is great and I am really pleased with the whole job from start to finish.” Peter Turner, director of Lakeland Bake
“I am very pleased with MHA Lighting’s bespoke lighting system. The new LED lighting has improved visibility in the store and customers have commented on how much brighter and larger the store now appears. The new lights have created daylight indoors. MHA Lighting was helpful at every stage of the process and there was no disruption to my business as they were able to install the lighting outside of the store’s opening hours. Raj Dhillon, SPAR Widnes store owner
“MHA Lighting provided a LED lighting solution that not only improves lighting levels but reduces our on-going energy costs and equivalent Co2 emissions. We are delighted with the results and are already getting positive feedback from our customers about how great the new store looks and the feel of the store created by the light.” Philip Tout, owner of Tout’s Budgens
“We definitely found the best solution in terms of budget, energy reduction targets and overall lighting effect with MHA Lighting. The light colour, output and uniformity is tremendous and all in all I believe we have the right light solution for the NEC.” Andrew Cope, project engineer at the NEC
“Illuminating Water Street Car Park in a cost effective, energy efficient way has been particularly difficult given the way it is constructed and its original lighting layout. Initially we set ourselves a target to reduce the car parks energy use by 50% while improving overall lighting levels. The good news is that since project works completion we are achieving our energy reduction target with savings on-going. We are also delighted with the improved light levels and uniformity within the car park. This installation is not only the most cost effective and to the highest quality, but an added bonus is that these world-class technology LED light fittings are assembled here in the Borough of Wigan, creating skills and employment for local people.” Wigan Council’s Energy Officer Barry Foster
