Millbrook Care Centre is a new, spacious, 46 bedroom residential property for the elderly that has been built on the site of a former primary school in Tameside. Millbrook is part of the highly accredited and respected Meridian Healthcare Group, which has in excess of 30 properties nationwide and has won awards for its excellent care and facilities.
Following consultation, Steon Lighting designed a lighting scheme which complements the company’s holistic approach to care and is fully consistent with the luxurious, high quality furnishings and décor.
Steon Lighting supplied the Orbit luminaire, a decorative compact fluorescent luminaire with a chrome trim, for application in all the bedrooms and corridors. The luminaires in the corridors were linked to one another in a master-and slave-style network, they also incorporated Manual Intelligent Control (MIC2). This approach enabled the corridor luminaires to operate in unison, sensors integrated in the luminaires detect presence, varying output depending on whether the corridor is occupied or vacant, thus conserving energy.
The lounge areas were fitted throughout with Venus LED down lights for a bright, contemporary aesthetic, whilst colour changing RGB LED lighting was installed in the main lounge added to the unique, relaxing atmosphere of the space.
By working closely with Millbrook Care Centre and their established electrical contractors, RMD Electrical Contractors, Steon Lighting were able to deliver a lighting scheme which has been well received by residents and carers alike.
Since this project Steon Lighting Ltd. have continued to work closely with the Meridian Healthcare Group and RMD Electrical Contractors. We have seen a similar project at Oakes Hall come to fruition, receiving praise for the quality of the lighting scheme. We are current working to fulfill the requirements of another development on behalf of Meridian, the Denby Dale Care Centre.
“We are very pleased with the new lighting installation throughout Millbrook Care Centre. Our carers and residents are extremely satisfied with the high quality aesthetic lighting scheme. The team at Steon Lighting provided a very professional service.”
