Energy efficient lighting using LED technology

Saga Furs Oyj is a qulity auction house. It's auction facilities are under renovation at the moment. In the design phase of project, based on the life cycle calculations, decision to use LED technology to produce premium quality lighting conditions for auditorium and other spaces was made. Previous lighting solution of auction auditorium used 250 W halogen lamps. The new solution using 24 W LED lamps will reduce installed electrical power for lighting from 65 kW to just 7 kW.

LED techology is also widely used in renovation project for Pension Insurance Company Etera's facilities. Office floors will be lighted up totally using LED lamp fixtures. Fixtures will be installed in place for old fluorescent lamp fixtures without any need to make modification to installation chassis.

We use LCC and Dialux calculation software to specify right solutions for our clients needs.

SIR Consulting -20 years

SIR Consulting Ltd was established on 26.10.1992. At that time the market situation was quite challenging because of a major downturn in the Finnish economy.

The business was established by three partners and two other professionals.

At that time almost all building projects were related to renovation of existing buildings. We were happy to sign a contract to renovate a large property (27.000 bm2) for use of Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority Finland at the beginning of 1993.

At first we served industrial, building and insurance companies, as well as the public sector.

We still serve clients from our early years, some of them from the 1970’s as they were clients of our former company Parkkamäki & Co. Our main commitment has always been to establish long term relationships with our customers and build up partnerships with them.

When working at Parkkamäki & Co, we had a motto framed on the wall “The customer pays our salaries -  let’s provide a good service for them”. This is also our guiding principle.

One considerable and longterm set of projects has been in Leppävaara, Espoo, where we provided electrical, ICT and security systems design for 14 buildings, overall 160.000 bm2, built between 1998 – 2012. Five of the buildings were built for Nokia’s R&D services and nine buildings make up Quartetto Business Campus for large number of established companies.
