Islington Wharf Mews, Manchester

Project: Islington Wharf Mews, Manchester

Featuring 46 environmentally-sensitive, waterside houses and apartments, Islington Wharf Mews offers a new generation of home owners the chance to experience city life in an attractive location in the heart of Manchester.  In keeping with the eco-friendly principles guiding this development, more than 1,000 of Scolmore Group’s Inceptor LED downlights are providing energy-saving lighting solutions at this prestigious scheme.

Created by urban waterside regeneration specialists ISIS, Islington Wharf Mews builds on the success of the first phase of the scheme — a striking, award-winning 20-storey glass and copper-clad tower incorporating 200 beautiful apartments – and is set to be a dynamic part of the city’s future.

As well as the installation of the Inceptor LED downlights, wiring accessories from Scolmore Group’s Mode range have been fitted throughout the accommodation, chosen for their smooth, modern lines, high quality and competitive pricing.

Commenting on the products specified for installation, Ford Cornes, from electrical contractor, Sema Services, said:  “We were looking for white accessories and the Mode switches and sockets stood out for their simple yet stylish contemporary look; they are not too boxy like others on the market.  The Inceptor downlights really met all the criteria we had set out.  Their energy efficiency and the ability to use them in shallow ceiling voids is a great benefit to installers as is the flow connector system, which means there is no fiddling about.  They offer a very high light output and are certainly one of the best in terms of brightness compared to some on the market.  The fact that they are sealed, fire-rated and acoustic rated were also key factors, and price had an impact.  They are not the cheapest but when you compare all the features and benefits they represent extremely good value.”

All Scolmore products are manufactured to the highest quality levels in the industry and comply with all relevant British and European standards, providing an innovative and flexible solution for a range of commercial and domestic applications.
