The Queens Hotel – Save Money Cut Carbon

    The Queens Hotel


    The Queens Hotel is a large hotel located on City Square in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Built in 1937, it is an elegant Art Deco Grade II listed building.

    We carried out this project working for Save Money Cut Carbon, who help businesses take practical steps to be more sustainable, cutting energy & water bills, resulting in reduced carbon emissions. We were tasked with providing an external lighting solution.


    The Challenge:

    We were challenged to provide an energy efficient solution to the front façade of the building, that was in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

    Being that the hotel is a listed building, we wanted to reduce the visual appearances of any cabling and LED strip lighting.

    The project, undertaken during the covid pandemic, had many logistical challenges including road closures, overnight working and aligning work alongside other trades, meaning the project had specific time constraints.

    The Solution:

    We decided to utilise the Casambi enabled technology to produce a state of the art, wireless system that offered the required lighting output.

    We installed, updated and commissioned the system through, having set up the scenes and groups through the Casambi smart device application. This gives the hotel and us here at Genco, the ability to control the output of the lighting remotely via the Casambi Gateway.

    We created our own bracketry to house the LED strip lighting covertly within the existing building structure.

    The Outcome:

    The Queens hotel has a fully functioning, wirelessly controlled system that can be manipulated remotely via an app. This system, alongside the rest of the work carried out by Save Money Cut Carbon, makes the building more energy efficient and reduces their carbon impact.

    It was completed on time, to budget and snag free, impressing both the hotel management and the client, Save Money Cut Carbon.

    This project can be seen by the millions of visitors Leeds has throughout the year.
