Sunlight House

Manchester, United Kingdom

Sunlight House is a Grade II listed building in the art deco style on Quay Street in Manchester, England. Completed in 1932 for Joseph Sunlight, at 14 storeys, it was the tallest building in Manchester, and the top floors of turrets and multiple dormer windows and mansard roofs create a distinctive skyline.

The recent refurbishment included the installation of Thorlux Hi-Bar luminaires in many of the office areas. Thorlux Hi-Bar luminaires, with the Smartscan wireless lighting management system, have been installed in the office areas.

Slim and elegant, the Hi-Bar combines supreme efficiency and longevity with design flexibility. SmartScan installations can deliver energy savings of over 70% compared with conventional technology. Integral sensors monitor ambient light and presence, control output to the correct level, dim and switch when there is sufficient daylight and illuminate only when the area is occupied.
