PROJECT SHOWCASE

ALERA Lighting & Hi Lo Petit Valley

The Project - Hi Lo Petit Valley Up Grade

Client – Hi Lo Food Stores
Architect – Alison Grosberg – Designworks
Project Manager – Sarah Jane Kidman

The brief from the client was to transform the space from the existing format into an up-market contemporary supermarket. On entering the supermarket the customer should get a warm, inviting feeling and during the shopping experience all products must be well illuminated and “pop”….to use Sarah Jane’s exact words.

 

To help achieve this effect the Architect and client decided to change its traditional lighting method which used 400w Metal Halide Low Bay to suspended fluorescent direct/indirect fixtures. They also wanted to significantly increase the light levels on the items at the at the parameter of the supermarket, like produce, frozen food and smoked meat cabinets.

The Product

ALERA – CVSL 60’ 2T8 CM48 EU MW

After meeting with the client it was decided that the ALERA CVSL 2 x 32w T8 in a continuous 60’ run will provide the desired look and provide excellent illumination in the shopping isles. Suspended 7’ from the ceiling and 11’ from the floor ALERA was able to provide maintained lumens of 50fc in the shopping isles and 60fc on the shelves.

ALERA comes standard with quick connect mounting brackets for easy instillation and seamless joints between sections. This type of lighting is often used in retail but is more commonly seen in office applications. Options available that will add significant value to the end used in office applications are dimming ballasts, occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting sensors.

PRESCOLITE – AKTHLCE218

Along the parameter of the store Prescolite Wall Wash track lights with each with 2 x 18w High Lumen lamps were installed. The resulted in an increase in light levels from 50fc to 70fc on the cabinets. This is a 40% increase and the products on these shelves definitely “pop” off the shelves into the shopping carts.

Delivery

As with all projects, meeting deadlines and speedy delivery is not negotiable. It was mentioned that due to the very short lead time, specialised lighting as mentioned earlier (7 x 60’ Continuous runs of the ALERA CVSL) will not be able to be delivered on time. However, with ALERA’s 10 day shipment programme on a wide selection of fixtures it was delivered 3 days before the deadline. The order was placed, shop drawings received, product manufactured and delivered of our forwarder in Miami in 8 working days.

Specifiers Quick Tip

When specifying suspended fluorescents try and stick to 8’ or 12’ runs as much as possible. A single 4’ section could be as much as 75% of the cost of a single 8’ section.
