Verifiable, environmentally sustainable business practices are intrinsic to our success as a company.

The canopy lighting looks fantastic. Energy use is minimal and light spill is negligible, underpinning our environmental responsibility.

The Client

The Lakeland Dairies group has grown into a global market leader in the manufacturing of dairy based products. Lakeland develops their food-service products with the professional in mind. They deliver high-quality, yet functional products to busy kitchens and bakeries around the world.

Indeed their markets span the globe, supplying customers in over 70 countries across Europe. This includes the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Manufacturing Sites operate Environmental Management Systems to ISO 14001:2015 Certification. Specifically, these systems and practices are used to achieve continual improvement in waste water management, water usage, emissions to atmosphere, energy reduction and in the reduction, re-use and recycling of waste. In their pursuit of operational excellence, they recognise that the management of their environmental footprint is critical to the long term sustainability and future success of their business.

The Project

Resourceable provided the external LED lighting expertise for this new canopy at Pritchitts. We worked extensively to accurately represent the canopy architecture in the lighting design. The hi -tech lighting is undoubtedly a great success. Together with the client we chose the Kanopy LED luminaire from Dexeco as a result of its low running costs and high product specification.

Resourceable designed the external LED lighting to ensure that the lux levels were suitable for the tanker unloading activities taking place. We referred to lighting standards and of course to the CIBSE lighting guidelines during the design. There were challenges of course. For instance, due to environmental concerns, we kept light spill to a minimum. Additionally we chose a sensor that would reliably perform at the required height; higher than standard forecourt canopies. Furthermore, the LED lighting is fully controllable, giving light when needed and at minimum cost. Specifically the lighting will remain off when there is adequate daylight. This significantly reduces energy costs and carbon emissions.

Lakeland is a responsible, competitive, profitable and sustainably managed business, constantly investing in their future. Unquestionably, LED, energy efficient lighting is one way to minimise energy use and carbon output. This external LED lighting project further enhances the lighting at this site and most importantly uses the latest technology. It looks spectacular and costs little to run. Furthermore we specified the colour (temperature) of the new LED lighting to match the other external lights on site. This attention to detail is typical of the thought and professional expertise demonstrated in this project.
