A Swansea firm has teamed-up with Philips Lighting to supply and fit flexible, energy saving lighting systems to commercial and office buildings.
DRS FM Services' partnership with the international lighting giant has seen engineers trained as Interact Pro installers.
Interact Pro sees LED lights, with integrated sensors, connected to application software and an intuitive dashboard (and mobile App) that help create the right ambience to suit a task at the point it is being worked on whilst marinating other settings within feet at a different set of desks or task stations.
The dashboard gives business owners the oversight they need to save energy and it allows installers to monitor their installations, perform health checks and receive information on energy and usage for further lighting optimisation.
DRS is delivering this in collaboration with EFT Consult, another company based in Swansea that specialises in new technologies in the built environment. EFT designs the lighting set-up, while DRS fits it. DRS FM Services and EFT Consult are both members of the RD Group, which comprises three Swansea companies - RDM Electrical Services, DRS FM Services, and EFT Consult.
Wellbeing of future generations
Mark Phillips, MD at DRS, said: “We’re excited to bring this intelligent lighting to the region. By helping to save energy and create a healthier work environment, Interact Pro can help employers meet some of the aims of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, the Welsh Government initiative focussed on improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing of Wales. The Act is designed to encourage companies to create a better working environment, help to reduce waste and improve organisational well-being.
“Our staff have now been trained to fit Interact Pro lighting and we also offer the design expertise of EFT Consult as part of the package. We now have a demonstration building in Fforestfach, Swansea that is fitted with Interact Pro lighting, so potential customers can come and see what a remarkable difference it can make, with benefits ranging from saving energy costs to improving staff wellbeing by creating a pleasantly lit environment.”
