Industrial Unit Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate


Having previously been commissioned by UK Land Estates to construct an industrial unit on the Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate that resulted in an award winning building, Tri Construction was the obvious choice when a further unit needed to be developed.

The 48,000 sq ft (4,500 sq m) office, warehouse and storage facility required significant M&E services that were provided by Opus Building Services. This included the provision of internal, external and emergency lighting and having considered a number of suppliers NVC was specified. More than 100 NVC fittings  were installed throughout the building including OREGON IKO9, IP20 rated industrial luminaires and Fulton FULTON IP40, edge lit, LED recessed panels in both standard and emergency versions. Opus also chose PRESTON robust IK10, IP54 rated LED halo effect circular bulkheads, WESTPORT IP44 rated low glare downlights and LEXINGTON Pro IP20 rated LED emergency wall-mounted exit boxes.

Opus selected NVC’s products for a variety of reasons including its superlative 7-year unlimited hours warranty and the lithium-ion emergency batteries in its emergency lighting which makes it both more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Also, because of their high performance, fewer fittings could be used in the warehouse space with high output Oregon luminaires delivering the light levels required. And with the addition of PIR occupancy sensors, these fittings automatically adjust light output to suit the outside conditions and usage of the space, which results in a better working environment and reduced energy consumption.

Opus’ project manager Scott Louis said: “NVC’s Oregon fittings came into their own as commissioning of these ‘intelligent’ fittings is all carried out at ground level after installation making the programming of fittings very user-friendly even in this building which is some 9.4m high.”
