PRESTIGIOUS AWARD FOR BUILDING WITH HUMAN- CENTRIC SMART LIGHTING


The first human-centric smartLighting (HCsL) system has been key to the headquarters of Gymshark being recognised at the prestigious UK Property Awards

he system was installed by Derbyshire-based company, Scenariio,


which provides smart lighting sensor technology that will help reduce energy costs and carbon footprint of the fitness apparel and accessories brand company. Scenariio also worked with interior design company, Oktra for the project. Scenariio installed the system at the


Gymshark HQ in Solihull, simulating the daylight curve of the sun, and monitoring usage across the building to optimise energy and cost efficiency. Rob Pritchard,


“Data from our sensors is also helping


Gymshark to decide whether the building is being used to best effect to help plan future growth and staff moves. “The company has already reconfigured


one area of the building and put in further desks because of the data from the lighting system.” Ben Francis, founder and owner of Gymshark, says: “The smartengine lighting system helps us at Gymshark, especially with our product design. “We can use the same

operations director at Scenariio, says: “Gymshark wanted a building which would accommodate their rapid growth, attract and retain future talent. Smart lighting was a key component of this ambition. They needed a system suitable for shift working and for viewing products, particularly fabrics, in different light so required tuneable white light and colour temperatures adjusted for users, based on job roles.

colour light over different fabrics to see how they look. We use the sensors to understand how to use


the building more effectively and improve the environment for everyone


who works here.” Pritchard adds: “Sensors are very


useful in a hot-desking environment, showing when a workstation is vacant or not. Companies use this technology to highlight to staff where they can work when they arrive each day.” Pritchard and his colleagues at Scenariio have combined their talents

SMARTENGINE The smartengine provides information for other building systems including security through motion detection, air conditioning and occupancy. It uses safe low voltage data cables allowing flexibility to reconfigure, minimising ongoing maintenance requirements. Pritchard adds: “We would expect a company to save up to 90 per cent of their energy running costs if they use our system and for them to have a return on investment within a few years.” Scenariio is part of the University of


Derby and European regional development fund-backed low carbon business network. Dr Fred Paterson, the University of


Derby's project lead for the low carbon business network, says: “I am delighted we are able to support innovative companies such as Scenariio. Their work at Gymshark is a game-changer and I am sure it will be the springboard for a new era in smart office designs.”
