Case Studies

Manor Farm


Manor Farm Lighting Project

  • Project: Industrial warehouse

  • Industry: Distribution of Food products

  • Total number of light fittings changed 58

  • Electricity bill annual savings Kilo watt hours 41259kw

  • €7,014 per annum savings


Upon renovation to the warehouse we redesigned the lighting layout to optimize the amount of light in the warehouse based on the new racking layout and to reduce lighting energy costs by 75%.


“The Lighting upgrade in our distribution ware house has made a huge difference. It has significantly reduced our energy cost, maintenace cost and also reduced our carbon footprint.

Our staff have found that the quality of light has greatly improved due to the new design and layout as the most suitable light fixtures for our demanding envirorment were used

I would highly recommed McArdle & Traynor Electrical Ltd and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.”

Sundrelle LED Lighting Project

  • Project: Industrial warehouse

  • Industry: Distribution of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products

  • Total number of light fittings changed 384

  • Electricity bill annual savings Kilo watt hours 136212kw

  • 23,156 per annum savings


We carried out a lighting energy audit on the premises to look at ways of reducing the companys energy cost and optimizing the quality of light in both the distribution warehouse and offices.

Upon completion of our audit we learned that the quality of light was poor and some staff were having trouble reading labels etc.

We came up with a tailored lighting solution to optimize both energy efficiency and increase the quality of light significantly and slashing both their energy and maintenance costs in half . Upon completion of the installation the managers were extremely happy with their savings and how it has modernized the building so the staff can find what they are looking for and see what they are doing.

Panda Power Headquarters

McArdle Traynor were asked to quote competively on this project and were very happy to be awarded the 6 month contract.

Panda Power - being a power company - were extremely selective in the process of finding an electrical contractor who would be able to specify, supply and fit a power and lighting system that would pass any scrutiny in regards efficiency and energy saving.
