Scolmore lights up new £1/2m restaurant
The £500,000 transformation of a former Chinese restaurant by two local Lincolnshire businessmen has been completed, and brings a stylish new eatery to Burton Waters Marina. The new Harbour Lights Bar & Kitchen was the subject of a total interior refit which took six months to complete and is now open for business, with products from Scolmore’s lighting control and electrical accessories ranges selected to meet the client’s requirements.
Marcus Stonham from Total Electrical Services based in North Hykeham in Lincoln, is the contractor responsible for the electrical installation. Marcus recommended Scolmore’s iNELS RF wireless control system to meet the client’s need for an easy to control lighting system that would allow for a number of lighting scenes to be set in the bar and restaurant areas, to create the desired mood and atmosphere during different times of the day and evening. A total of 24 Click iNELS receivers were installed along with the RF Touch Screen Panel, which allows full control of the lighting.
Comments Marcus: “The client had a very ambitious plan for the lighting in the new restaurant and bar areas which required quite a complex system. I’ve used Scolmore’s iNELS wireless automation system before so I knew it was just what was needed for the job. It’s very simple to install and the Touch Screen Panel allows for easy programming, to set a variety of scenes. This panel has been placed by the kitchen door where it can be accessed and operated by staff members who needed just a small amount of instruction to be able to use it. As a system, iNELS represents excellent value for the quality and features it offers.”
Ben Adams is the sales director at 7 Core Electrical Wholesale Ltd in Lincoln, the electrical wholesaler involved in the project.
In addition to the lighting control system, Scolmore’s Deco switches and sockets have been installed throughout the restaurant and bar areas, including a number of the double USB sockets to enhance customer experience. Scolmore’s white Mode accessories have been fitted throughout the kitchen and storeroom areas and behind the bar.
