University Of Huddersfield – Student Central Reception

    University of Huddersfield
    Student Central Reception


    A large refurbishment on the Student Central building required genco to supply and install a variety of different aspects such as

    New lighting

    Small power


    Fire alarm                   

    Structured cabling

    As most jobs we do here at genco, time, sustainability and pricing were large factors so organisation here was key.

    The Challenge:

    Genco were tasked with sourcing the most cost effective and user friendly equipment for the University.

    The lighting needed to be energy efficient with the ability to change colour and the small power needed to be mounted from the ceilings for the use of projectors.                               

    Organisation was also key as other work men would be carrying out jobs on the refurb so Genco’s schedule needed to be perfectly planned.

    The Solution:

    Using Hacel Lighting, genco were able to keep in line with the required aspects for the job.

    Sustainability was met due to using energy efficient adjustable LED lighting, the particular lights chosen are also programmed to automatically dim when movement is not detected.

    Opting for rigid ceiling pendants for the small power sockets, this ensured wires and cables were invisible to the eye whilst giving the accessibility and ease to multiple double sockets.


    The finished project was a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing reception area, made to blend in with the all round design and adapt to all user needs and requirements keeping everyday use simple and easy for all.
