High quality new offices built behind a distinctive period stone façade are utilising networked lighting controls and a pre-fabricated wiring system from Flex Connectors.
6 Broad Street Place now contains almost 23,000 square feet of office space over six floors in a prominent City of London location, opposite the entrance to Broadgate Circus and Liverpool Street Station.
The redevelopment of the building – which has suspended ceilings and raised floors – was undertaken by Bridge House Estates, the property arm of London’s oldest charity, the Bridge House Trust.
The contractors, MITIE Engineering, chose Flex Connectors’ networked lighting controls as the project called for a flexible system that could provide effective energy efficiency in an office environment with good natural light.
Using an occupancy sensor from the flex 7 range enabled full daylight linking to be achieved. This sensor can work independently or be linked to other daylight linking or On/Off PIR sensors to form simple networks.
The intuitive nature of both the pre-fabricated wiring and of the sensor linking system – all components are interchangeable and inter-connectable – means that the electricians who install or alter the lighting can configure or reconfigure lighting layout and the control links, without the need for commissioning visits.
