Induver is a Belgian family business specializing in industrial insurance.
For the renovated headquarters of Induver, LOOOP completed a complete Design & Build project, stripping the office building completely to shell and integrating new state-of-the art technologies. Project Nekton tackled the lighting installation as New Lighting. We worked out a lighting concept for the office where we performed both the concept, study, installation and commissioning of the controls.
After a thorough lighting study, we installed smart lighting throughout the building and all offices: the project was smartly controlled with Bluetooth Low Energy modules from Casambi, and each fixture was equipped with its own sensor that continuously monitors movement and daylight. In addition to the energy-efficient LEDs, this saves the client an additional 50% on his lighting costs.
Cabling for power supply was provided, and with wireless control and communication, we were able to avoid costs for additional cabling.
The system is also completely future-proof: Induver can continue to scale in the future, with the two downstairs floors also being addressed and connected to the system.
In addition to lighting, we also collaborated on the following aspects:
- Acoustic flake ceiling: Sound absorbing covering for ceiling provides absorption of sound waves, eliminating reverberation. Any room is so cozy, pleasant and nice to work in.
- Solar shades: Special modules from Casambi provide fully automatic operation of shutters.
Human Centric Lighting
All living things have an “inner clock” called the circadian rhythm, and humans are no exception. In a nutshell, this means that we get up with the sun and go to sleep when it sets. The right light at the right time can affect everything from our sleep to how we feel and perform. That’s why Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is beneficial for schools, healthcare facilities, offices and industrial buildings.
At Induver, Human Centric Lighting formed an important aspect to optimize comfort, health and productivity in the workplace.
For example, the light follows the color temperature of natural sunlight. Pleasant warm white light in the morning and evening, and cooler light in the afternoon that follows the circadian rhythm perfectly. In this way, we paid extra attention to room brightness, visual comfort and lighting control.
The proportion of vertical light is also compliant with the latest standards EN-12464-1 update 2021, every goal below has been ticked off:
