Challenge

South Gloucestershire Council is undertaking an LED replacement programme in an effort to take advantage of reduced capital costs and the latest lighting technology.

The Council had previously experimented with retrofitting LED trays but the time and cost of converting existing units was found to be prohibitive.

The following requirements were identified:

  • A high-performance lantern with heritage looks
  • Customisable dimming regimes
  • Multiple optic options
  • Exact match with South Gloucestershire’s specification

Solution

Acrospire worked in close collaboration with South Gloucestershire Council and the outcome was the development of StreetCare, a high-performance lantern with traditional, heritage looks.

At an installation trial, StreetCare outperformed three alternative conservation lanterns. It received a number of positive comments for its ease of installation and build quality from installation operatives.

This successful trial led to StreetCare becoming the heritage lantern of choice in conservation areas across South Gloucestershire.

Manufactured in Acrospire's Basingstoke facility, StreetCare features a fully programmable driver allowing the dimming regime to exactly match the Council's needs.

Testimonial

“The collaborative work with Acrospire has enabled a lot of innovation and the creation of a lantern which solved many problems for us as a client. The StreetCare lantern is the perfect affordable solution for our conservation areas.”
– Ryan Brown, Senior Project Engineer (Lighting), South Gloucestershire Council
