Ashley Centre Car Park



Named as the UK’s ‘Best place to live’ by Channel 4’s Location, Location, Location in 2005, Epsom in Surrey is a popular town. A proud Epsom and Ewell Borough Council works hard to maintain its status by improving all public facilities for the public’s convenience whilst at the same time respecting its responsibility to the environment.

The local council required the services of Designplan to provide and energy saving lighting solution for the Ashley Centre car park. Designplan provided 164 Brunel retrofit LED gear trays and diffusers in order to meet the council’s goals, which required a solution that lowers energy consumption, reduces cost and improves the lighting levels.

The original fittings comply with the IP65 and IK16 standards and now with the retrofit LED gear trays installed the council has further reduced its running and maintenance costs whilst at the same time cutting its energy consumption. The public perception of the lighting level has improved following the change from and orange SON lamp to white LED, and in addition the installation remained within budget – successfully meeting the council’s requirements.

Martin Stewart, M&E Engineer at Epsom at Ewell Borough Council, said: ‘The success of the project will now lead on to further refits in other car parks. An order has already been placed to install additional LED retrofits within Hook Road car par in Epsom.’
