Established in Melbourne as a family-owned business more than 30 years ago, Baby Bunting is Australia’s largest nursery retailer and one-stop-baby shop. There are 42 stores spread across VIC, NSW, SA, QLD & WA. The older stores require an overhaul in general lighting quality while also reducing operating costs.
Aglo Systems is currently in the process of systematically upgrading many of the Baby Bunting stores across Australia. At the time of writing, sixteen stores have been upgraded, internally, externally or completely.
Every site was carefully assessed with light calculations and measurements for a proposal of the best method to upgrade old, dim fittings with more economical and energy efficient LEDs. For each site Aglo created a lighting design which would significantly improve the light levels, reduce lighting energy consumption and achieve the maximum Government rebate. In the design brief, Baby Bunting required a minimum average of 700 Lux instore. Prior to the upgrade, levels averaged 334 Lux. They now read at an average of 743 Lux.
Throughout the various sites, a range of outdated twin fluorescent tubes and metal halide shoplighter, highbay and floodlight fittings were upgraded to various types LED.
