Chemist Warehouse

Industry: Retail


This store had old, bare 5ft batten fittings, each with two 58-watt fluorescent tubes. There were many damaged fittings with failed components and non-functioning tubes. The overall brightness of the store was significantly impacted, and maintenance and safety costs on the lighting were extreme.

The project

Ozwide were engaged to return the store to a minimum lux avg of 600lm throughout. We redesigned the layout which saw the project re-wire and installed new LED panels throughout. This site allowed no works to be completed during hours, so nights-works were scheduled and managed.


The LED upgrade, and redesign to install the new lighting exactly within the isles, has made a marked difference to the space. The displayed stock on shelves is notably more illuminated, and the annual lighting bill savings for this store were significant.
