City South

Manchester, England

The City South Housing Trust is a Manchester based charitable housing association that manages and improves homes in the area. Their housing stock underwent an extensive regeneration to make the properties more sustainable and energy efficient. The aim was to reduce residents’ electricity bills by up to 25%.

We worked closely with City South to develop a complete lighting solution. Quadrant LED luminaires was chosen for external applications as they are IP54 rated and can resist an impact of 100 joules (IK14). In addition, Quadrant LED luminaires use circa 60% less energy than fluorescent alternatives. The Quadrant is one of our most versatile fittings. available in a wide variety of designs. Our “Quad” family, also includes the Miniquad, Quadrangle and QuadEvo all available with high IP and IK ratings, choice of finishes and emergency options. Luminaires for use in the entrance, lift lobby and stairs were also specified.

“We are overjoyed with the results and have recommended Designplan to other housing trusts in the area. We believe they would also benefit from their great range of energy efficient products, and excellent service.”
