Lighting in the office

In today's fast-paced working environment, it is more important than ever to create a space that promotes productivity and well-being.

To create a space that promotes productivity and well-being, we need to ensure that the office has optimal lighting. Studies have shown that the right mix of light can help improve task performance and cognitive functioning, while also reducing fatigue. Moreover, optimal lighting can improve mood and energy levels, creating a more positive work environment!

When designing an office space, it is important to consider lighting in order to create a space that is conducive to productivity and well-being. Project Nekton is here to help!

Human Centric Lighting and the importance of good lighting in the office

A new approach to office lighting that focuses on the needs of the people working in these spaces.

NWoW

NWoW is the abbreviation for New Way of Working, the concept that responds to the ever-changing expectations and needs of customers and employees. Within a people-oriented organisational culture based on trust, NWoW puts the focus on achieving results by empowering employees.

Today, technological evolution and development offer many opportunities to organise our way of living and working differently. We have literally got the world in our hands: we are becoming mobile, borders have become blurred and we have become more choosy.

The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and artificial intelligence is opening up a new paradigm in which organisations and employees must adapt in order not to be outdone. The evolution is exponential and requires significant efforts from companies to keep their products and services competitive. The New Way of Working offers an answer to the challenges companies face today.

Although new ways of working promote flexibility and some companies have introduced home working, the office remains the workplace of choice.

The future will be a healthy mix of home and office work.

Health & wellness for employees

On average, employees spend 1/3 of their day at the workplace. It is therefore excellent that the introduction of measures to promote health and well-being has become one of the main objectives for companies.

A pleasant and warm room, ergonomic furniture, good lighting, acoustic damping, good ventilation, contact with nature, etc. are some of the factors that influence people's well-being at work and are directly linked to productivity and performance.

Designing a welcoming, inviting space that promotes good work performance and allows employees to feel comfortable and satisfied is a must for companies looking to attract and retain the best talent.

Flexible spaces

New roles and tasks require spaces that adapt quickly and offer flexibility. Traditional offices have given way to open spaces that encourage collaboration. But there is also a need for private, soundproofed spaces that promote high concentration and performance.

Digitalisation means that the workplace can be customised, allowing each task to be performed from a wide variety of spaces, depending on current needs, such as meeting rooms, soundproof booths, creative spaces and even rest rooms.

Different environments that should make the professional and personal development of employees a top priority and contribute to achieving better results for organisations.

Smart offices

Offices are undergoing a natural evolution as technology increasingly enters the workplace.

Digitisation of processes, working methods and corporate culture leads to more flexible and competitive ways of working.

Fast and easy connection, virtual spaces for collaboration and data storage, independent control and management of office spaces and their elements, sensors, applications and devices that not only allow tasks to be optimised, but also make the workspace more comfortable, safer and more efficient.

For people:

Comfortable and adjustable lighting

Defining the lighting atmosphere.

It enables us to create a comfortable, customised environment that meets spatial, functional and biological requirements.

Improved experience

Enhances the experience and creates a strong bond between staff and the organisation.

Light, present in all spaces, can be a carrier for communication and interaction.

Wellbeing and productivity

Light made for people.

Improves well-being by synchronising the circadian rhythm, which has a direct impact on employee satisfaction, productivity and positive attitude.

For your organisation:

Energy saving

Intelligent, task-oriented lighting to stop waste.

Reduced energy consumption is achieved by using intelligent lighting, controlled by timetables, presence and light-sensitive sensors that are set to maximise the use of natural light in order to stop energy being wasted.

Space management and optimisation

Making decisions aimed at efficiency.

By using sensors that can measure the occupancy of specific spaces, we obtain information that allows us to make strategic decisions to manage spaces as efficiently as possible. For example, we can identify the areas that are used most, as well as the flow of movements, in order to adjust resources, plan and improve efficiency.

Preventive maintenance

Detecting incidents and defects to predict future expenditure.

By actively monitoring information from lighting fixtures, we are able to detect incidents and inspect equipment to ensure proper operation and smooth future maintenance.
