Staffordshire based zencontrol, has just secured a contract to work on the refurbishment of Birmingham International Airport’s Terminal 1 building.

Work will commence later this year and will see the company design and commission an energy efficient automated lighting control system that will detect how much natural daylight is coming into the terminal building and reduce the amount of artificial light needed to maintain a preset programmable lighting level.

James Hart, Director at zencontrol commented “We are obviously delighted to be awarded such a prestigious contract and this is yet another example of how flexible our systems are as they can be applied to almost any building and environment.

“The system will automate and control the amount of light used in all areas of the building which is in use 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and will thus help the airport reduce its energy consumption levels,” added James.

The company is an approved system partner of zencontrol, one of the UK’s most innovative and respected manufacturers of lighting and heating control products.
