Client Stories

Zimmer Biomet

Zimmer Biomet operates across more than 25 countries and is a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare.

High-wattage fittings were operational 24/7, resulting in significant energy consumption and cost. As a medical device manufacturer, the company also has to adhere to strict FDA requirements in terms of lux levels, as well as meet stringent health and safety requirements.

Zimmer Biomet identified our Light as a Service (LaaS®) as being the answer to all its financial and operational requirements.

The installation was fully project managed by UrbanVolt, causing no disruption to the ongoing operation. The UrbanVolt LED fittings significantly reduced the wattage draw, delivering a corresponding reduction in energy cost.

The LUX levels were boosted throughout the work floor, making the environment brighter and safer.

Bikeworld

Bikeworld is a leading supplier of Kawasaki motorbikes. They also offer a wide range of biking apparel and accessories in their retail spaces.

Some areas of the showrooms were dark and the lights were failing. It was also costing the company a considerable sum to run the old high-wattage fluorescents. The window lights in particular were proving a high draw on electricity as they were lit at night in order to showcase the bikes.

Using UrbanVolt’s Light as a Service®, Bikeworld was retrofitted with almost 400 fixtures including the public showroom, storage areas, back of house and the offices. The UrbanVolt team installed the lighting outside of opening hours so as not to affect day to day operations.

Light quality has been drastically improved and energy consumption has plummeted. The bikes and gear are now under lighting which highlights their quality and Bikeworld reduced the lighting bill without making any capital expenditure.

Sports Surgery Clinic

The Sports Surgery Clinic is a state-of-the art medical facility specialising in orthopaedics and sports medicine, and attracts some of the world’s most successful athletes.

Downtime wasn’t an option in this 24 hour healthcare environment; where a reduction in the high lighting cost was the primary motivation for partnering with UrbanVolt’s LaaS®.

The Clinic had to meet all quality and light level requirements as stipulated for medical facilities. These standards were met by the UrbanVolt LED technology, with over 1,300 fittings replaced across the 12,500 sq.m facility.

The installation was carried out overnight and at weekends to ensure minimal disruption to staff and patient services. The project achieved management’s objective of reducing energy consumption and cost without making any upfront investment.

Dublin City University (DCU)

DCU were extending their Innovation Campus into a building which had been unoccupied for several years. The LED lighting upgrade was part of that building upgrade. Light levels were important to DCU as the site was to become a shared office space for their clients and a premier working environment was required.

Through UrbanVolt’s Light as a Service®, the upfront capital for the lighting project was provided and the LED installation was project-managed from start to finish. Uniform light levels were achieved across the site to make the location fit for purpose. The LEDs will also be maintained for DCU as part of the UrbanVolt’s LaaS® no-haggle maintenance guarantee.

The result has been improved light levels, lower energy consumption, and lower energy bills.
