One Angel Square Alight with Latest Technologies

 At One Angel Square, Manchester, stands the landmark building that houses the Co-operative Group’s new headquarters. Striking in its architecture, it is an expression of the Co-op’s values and commitment to the environment: it is a statement for sustainability. The UK manufacturer has provided over 11,000 luminaries throughout the office and communal areas in the headquarters.                               


One Angel Square is the UK’s first outstanding BREEAM-rated building, designed to halve the current energy usage of the Co-op headquarters. The use of pioneering sustainable technology in the new building reduces carbon consumption by around 80 percent and significantly reduces energy costs for the company. Luxonic, through its own commitment to the environment in the design and manufacture of its luminaries, contributes to the energy efficiency of the Manchester building whilst providing a solution that integrates effortlessly with its architectural character.  

Approximately 8,000 of Luxonic’s luminaries used throughout the headquarters are bespoke, designed specifically for One Angel Square to integrate with the chilled beam system in both the office and meeting spaces. The unobtrusive nature of the linear luminaries gives these working spaces a contemporary and stylish feel. The Luxonic Flat-Lens FPO luminaries use a micro-prismatic lens to control light in the offices whilst maintaining high levels of efficiency. The slim beams include a directional uplight component that emphasises the clean lines of the coffered ceiling and also reduces the amount of light spill behind the chilled beam.

Luxonic LED downlighters are mounted within bespoke rafts throughout the reception area and the café. With an expected life span of 50,000 hours the Luxonic V-LED® 100 are powerful fixed recessed luminaries supplied with DALI dimmable control gear. This enables the lighting to be controlled according to daylight and occupancy levels, furthering its energy efficiency.

V-LED® 200s lights the ancillary areas at One Angel Square. These have been designed with the visual aesthetic of the luminaries in mind, as well as glare control and the shape of the intensity distribution. A specialist light engine from Luxonic manages the brightness of the LED while a satin diamond faceted reflector is an option to further control the luminaries luminance. This management of luminance quality results in a more visually comfortable environment for the users of the headquarters.

Invited to work on the project by Rotary North West and BAM construction due to previous success on high-end projects, Luxonic worked closely with designers Burro Happold and architect 3D Reid throughout the detailed design stage and continued to project completion. The Luxonic luminaries offered the highest levels of efficiency on the market, and confirmed the company’s specification for the provision of the lighting.
