XYZ Building




Situated in the heart of Manchester, Spinningfields is one of Europe’s most successful urban regeneration projects. Housing over 165 world class commercial organisations, Springfields is the city’s financial centre and a popular destination for entertainment and shopping. Created in the heart of Spinningfields, the XYZ building embraces the working and lifestyle needs of contemporary business.


XYZ Building required a variety of lighting products to provide the correct lighting solutions needed for its different spaces. The modern building featured exposed ceilings in most areas, with only the restrooms and a few individual offices incorporating plasterboard ceilings. XYZ Building is a busy environment which also houses cafes, restaurants, meeting places and much more. While style was a prerequisite, energy efficiency was a requirement also.



A selection of surface-mounted products were recommended for the exposed ceiling areas. Surface-mounted downlights were installed in corridors, a café and some breakout areas.

The SLIMLUX 610 R linear luminaire for recess-mounting, was installed in the meeting rooms, which all featured plasterboard ceilings. The SLIMXLUX 68 P linear, pendant luminaire with uplight was installed in the main office areas.

Some office areas required custom made design, essentially a continuous, trunking-based luminaire with up/down lighting capability and a new glare control diffuser. This part of the project was time sensitive and the design had to be created very quickly and any issues dealt with immediately. The LED-EM T R provided a neat and effective emergency lighting solution.



The prestigious XYZ Building boats a modern, energy efficient, lighting system which is not only functional, but also brings a touch of class and style of its own, effortlessly enhancing the surroundings.
