Phi helps pioneering building achieve BREEAM Outstanding award

Phi has recently providing lighting for the Living Planet Centre, the WWF’s fantastic new headquarters in Woking, Surrey. The project has been shortlisted for the office and workplace project of the year in the 2014 Lux Awards.

Our linear Stria fittings were chosen to light the office spaces and meeting rooms surrounding the central atrium of the building with the high-output direct/indirect light source used in pairs of 2.8-metre lengths to provide optimum lighting levels.

Phi’s fittings contributed to a total lighting load of only 5.5W/m2 which helped the Living Planet Centre to meet its key target of BREEAM Outstanding certification in May 2014.

Jonathan Gittins, Atelier Ten’s lighting engineer for the project, said: “It was a challenging brief and using Phi’s lighting solutions was significant in helping us to meet the strict performance criteria.

“Their willingness to work and closely collaborate with designers and contractors alike eased the process considerably and the final solution was impressive. We look forward to working with them again.”
