Luceco were recently instructed by Wessex Electricals to provide a comprehensive lighting design for the brand-new facilities of their client, Volvo Truck & Bus Wales & West. The new £8 million facility in Avonmouth combines the business’s expertise under one roof and features an 18-bay workshop, offices and external service areas. Truck & Bus Wales & West supplies and fits over 1.5 million new and exchange parts a year keeping Volvo fleets well serviced and maintained.
Working with the Wessex Electricals team, the Luceco team used a combination of luminaires for the different areas of the facilities – workshop, office, and external areas – including Callisto, Climate, LuxPanel, Epsilon, recessed Platinum downlighters, Celeste, and emergency lighting.
Luceco Project Manager, Steve Harris-Aucott said “We were asked to provide a full lighting design including presence detection control and daylight saving options. Luminaires in the workshop space had to be designed to be mounted on purlins and follow the steel beams ensuring fittings were not positioned over the top of trucks. Callisto was my go to luminaire for this application with the end walls and the ATF bays lit with angled Climate IP65 linear fittings mounted at 45Deg set at 3 meters height to direct light under the trucks.”
