Who we worked with
Peterborough Highway Services is a partnership between Peterborough City Council and Skanska. The contract covers the improvement and maintenance of Peterborough’s highway network and maintains 550 miles of carriageway, 718 miles of footways and 366 structures. In total, the council is targeting financial savings of £25 million over 20 years with as minimal capital cost outlay as possible.
What the scheme involved
INDO retrofit gear trays were installed into what was initially thought to be two different decorative lantern types (Strands and Albanys) across The Hamptons, in Peterborough. Existing luminaire housing was still of a serviceable condition, not warranting full luminaire replacement just yet. Lighting designs were therefore carried out by INDO on a street by street basis utilising the existing columns and spacings to create a lit scene that matched the 70-150W SON existing environment.
Equipment had to be compatible with the client’s 2-part Telensa CMS system. Working in partnership with the client, who free-issued the hardware for us to install directly onto the gear trays as part of the manufacturing process meant we delivered a solution that worked straight out of the box
Why the client chose us
Our gear tray quality, expertise and breadth of range were the key reasons why the client chose INDO. Because Peterborough had both Strand and Albany lanterns installed on their network, the fact that INDO could offer a single gear tray product for retrofitting LED into both unit types made for an efficient and cost-effective solution.
The Opus module (as featured in the INDO AIR1 range) gave options from 10-60W with DALI control plus we supplied all-new tear-drop bowls to further enhance the aesthetics of the upgrade
Any project challenges?
When the products arrived on site for installation, it became apparent that not all the existing luminaires were as listed on the inventory. INDO supported the team in a number of ways to find a solution including site visits to check different lantern fitting requirements and designing specific adaptor plates
We have been really happy with the gear trays and impressed with the customer support through all phases of the project. Inevitably on site, things weren’t quite as straight forward as expected as we ran into issues arising from discrepancies with inventory information. INDO were very quick to conduct site visits and engineer a solution that enabled the installation to continue and complete on time. We really appreciated their on-site support and quick turnaround, which ensured we delivered for the client. This, in conjunction with the lighting performance, cost efficiency and energy savings achieved has made it a very successful project. We would recommend INDO to anyone looking for both quality product and great customer service.
