What sets us apart


Simply put? Energy and material efficiency made easy, personal, and affordable.

When a facilities manager is looking to upgrade their property portfolio traditionally they have one of two options:

1. D.I.Y.: Choose the lighting, purchase it, and hire electricians to do a point-to-point replacement. This option is preferred when the FM does not require an ROI, the premises is not changing functions, and they know the lighting levels meet the current CIBSE standards for LUX levels and uniformity. This is the cheapest route - but has the least flexibility and the solution is less efficient than it could be.

2. Architects: The FM may choose to commission a professional lighting design from an architectural firm. This will guarantee the buildings light levels are fit for it's purposes, and then the FM will purchase the recommended lights, and hire electricians to install them following the design. Clearly, this is an expensive route but it will provide high standards and tailored designs for customers.

EGG lighting presents a third option.

3. EGG lighting: We provide professional designs at affordable prices. It’s unusual for a lighting company to offer start to finish service, and we do this because we know our customers find it tedious to contract multiple parties to carry out an industrial scale energy savings project.

We identify each customers areas of maximum savings ratio to least capital expenditure; and then provide everything they need to complete it, from: Site Survey  >  Grant Application Support  >  Digital Lighting Designs  >  Return on Investment Documentation >  Supply  > Install  >  Aftercare

History


It started with the Energy-Egg, which would eventually inspire the name 'EGG lighting'.

Our parent company TreeGreen Ltd was registered in 2007 by company director Brian O'Reilly. He appeared on the popular BBC TV show Dragons Den, with self developed and patented sensor technology. The product was called the ‘energy-egg’,  an automated energy saving switch for the domestic market.

Having specialised in sensors, Brian identified a strong opportunity between sensors and the lighting sector. This let to us trading under the name EGG lighting in 2013.

The growing EGGlighting made its name in the social housing sector, through providing lighting for communal close areas and secure door entry systems.

It was in 2015 that we won with a design and build contract from WHMalcolms and Scottish Prison Service. This is where we began differentiating ourselves as a company that could take the reins on project management, providing all start to finish services on our projects.

The legacy of the energy-egg lives on through our investment in technology and innovation, not to mention as our namesake. We are unusual for lighting company in that we spend a high percentage of resources on R&D, so we’ve always got some exciting projects on the horizon. Watch this space for more details on innovations like ‘lighting as a service’ (LAAS), Wi-Fi light switches and Bluetooth Mesh augmented lighting.
