A contemporary lighting scheme, designed and installed by Gradus Lighting, has helped transform the Saab showroom in Gloucester.

Gradus was asked to review the existing lighting at the showroom as part of the latest Saab refurbishment and looked at developing a clean and energy efficient scheme that would fit with the company’s corporate identity. Contemporary metal halide and low voltage track fittings were specified along with downlights, in order to create a scheme that both met the requirements of the client and also fit within the specified budget.

The challenging project brief specified that the lighting scheme should comply with relevant regulations and also ensure that cars in the showroom were lit to their full potential. Gradus managed the lighting project from inception to completion - designing, supplying and installing the scheme and ensuring that a low maintenance solution was achieved within the agreed timescales and budget. The team also ensured all dirty or previously damaged ceiling tiles were replaced and that all old fixtures and fittings were disposed of in an appropriate manner.

Commenting on the finished project, Rory Marr, Gradus’ Lighting Manager said: “We worked closely with both the Gloucester Saab dealer and the architects responsible for corporate identity, and designed a scheme which met all of the varying requirements. The installation was completed within the allotted timescale and the branch was able to remain open as normal throughout. This lighting project is a perfect example of how Gradus is able to manage projects from start to finish.”
