Lifts cars at Moor House

Changing lift lighting to LED to reduce energy costs

Moor House is an imposing building (85m high) in the City of London. Its tenants include prestigious global financial institutions, with more than 1600 office workers. GCL were contracted by Skanska to replace the internal lighting within the lifts of this 21 storey building, owned by Deka Immobilien. Moor House Management Services (MHMS) who manages Moor House, approached Skanska to change the lighting in fourteen lifts, from halogen lamps to energy efficient LEDs, in order to save money and reduce energy costs. For such a potentially dangerous operation, Skanska commissioned GCL because of their unrivalled reputation for attention to detail and health & safety experience.

This project required a fast turnaround, with all the work having to be done over a single weekend with minimal disruption to staff. As a result, the client not only reduced their carbon footprint – their annual lift lighting costs were cut by a huge 55%.

GCL came up with a solution which didn’t entail expensive bespoke fittings and could use the existing wiring. Working with our lift maintenance company the lights in all lift cars were successfully replaced and the heat gain problem is non- existent.
