Case Studies

Pets at Home

Pets at Home is the UK's largest pet supplies retailer, also offering onsite veterinary services. The retailer required a lighting system which would suit their clinical needs and achieve substantial energy savings.
Overview
With 420 stores, 350 of which have 'Vets for Pets' veterinary services onsite, Pets at Home invited us to provide a commercially economical lighting solution that suited both its retail and clinical needs and would deliver significant energy savings.

Solution 
We selected our HI-MAX® as the most suitable range for Pets at Home's large open plan spaces. With sustainability and capability in mind, our bespoke design included colour temperature change panels for use in the veterinary surgeries. The theatre now has the capability to adjust mood between 2,000 and 5,700k, allowing the vets to relax the animals as well as operate with clinical level lighting.

Result
Each luminaire was specifically built with a wire transceiver, which allows the control system to monitor levels of daylight and automatically adjust interior lighting levels in response, to optimise working conditions. Our energy efficient and innovative solutions suited the retail and clinical needs of Pets at Home, and provided the company with an estimated 55 per cent improvement in energy saving. Our lighting systems generated energy cost savings of £2.9m per year and enabled Pets at Home to win an 'edie' energy saving award.
