Shine On assessed the Altona Head office and suggested alternatives that would dramatically reduce the buildings energy consumption. The focus was on delivering high quality light output while creating a welcoming environment for the staff and guests.
Shine On proposed tube and downlight alternatives which enabled Burbank Homes to save 73% on their lighting consumption and power cost. This impressive saving was achieved with a payback period of only 11 months and a first year return on investment of 109%.
The iconic Melbourne Mail Exchange Building was built in 1917 and has an incredible history, being used mainly by the Post Master’s General Department. In 2010, the brand-new Mail Exchange Hotel was opened following extensive restoration. It features a 200 seat bistro, a central bar, informal lounge area, TAB facilities and an atrium with internal courtyard.
When Shine On was selected to upgrade the lighting in the building to LED we assessed all communal areas within the Mail Exchange building and surrounding carpark. The aim was to reduce the energy consumption of the establishment, while retaining the warm ambience and atmosphere of the building and its heritage features.
Using a combination of LED tubes and recessed downlights, we were able to improve the lighting quality in the hotel while managing to preserve it’s character. Pleasingly, the hotel’s annual lighting energy consumption was reduced by an extraordinary 74% and all within a fast 12 month payback period. This impressive retrofit will result in five year energy cost savings for the hotel of over $98,000.
Rocla is a leading Australian supplier of concrete solutions to the building and construction industry. Shine On was asked to assess the current lighting in Rocla’s Campbellfield warehouse, office and production line facility.
The main objective was to reduce energy consumption, while reducing maintenance time and costs and the safety implications of replacing blown bulbs.
We proposed LED tube and highbay alternatives to replace their old, inefficient lighting. Following installation, Rocla was able to save 69% on their lighting consumption and power costs. This impressive saving will eventually deliver a five year energy cost saving of over $27,000 and a maintenance reduction of over $1,500 per year.

Doggett is sustainability and their main objective was to reduce unnecessary energy consumption, whilst also lowering maintenance costs and the OH&S implications of continuously replacing blown highbays.
Using a combination of LED tubes, downlights, panels, floodlights, canopies, recessed circulars and highbays, we were able to dramatically reduce their lighting consumption and power costs by an impressive 70%. This equated to a five year energy cost saving of over $245,000 while also reducing maintenance costs from frequently blown lights.

Using a combination of LED tubes and dimmable downlights, we were able to improve the lighting quality at Bentleigh RSL and lower their annual lighting energy consumption by 79%. This will eventually deliver five year energy cost savings of an extraordinary $137,932.
Assemco is an Australian owned and operated company that partners with organisations who outsource any of their product assembly, production, purchasing and logistics functions.
Shine On was asked to assess the lighting in one of their large factory facilities. Their main objective was to reduce energy consumption, whilst also reducing maintenance costs and OH&S implications of continuously replacing blown highbays.
By replacing all of their inefficient 400W High Pressure Sodium’s with H-Flux Highbays, we were able to dramatically improve the quality of light in the factory and save Assemco 69% on their lighting consumption and power costs. This will eventually deliver a five year energy cost saving of over $35,000.
All Weather Windows (AWW), a high end window and door manufacturer, were keen to upgrade their lighting as part of an office, showroom and factory refurbishment. With their product range containing a large number of energy efficient windows and doors, they saw the benefit of energy efficient lighting. Brightness and light quality were still very important considerations with a customer facing showroom involved.
The solution was high output and colour rendition downlight replacements to showcase their product range to customers in the best possible light while tube adapters in the offices has improved the quality and consistency of lighting.
The LED highbays in the factory have proven to be the most popular. Increased light levels have facilitated a more detailed inspection of both inbound and outbound goods, ultimately resulting in an increase in the quality of product being shipped to customer.
The retrofit was carried out over a number of days at minimal disruption to business and with a reported 65% reduction to their overall lighting energy costs.
Westall Primary School engaged Shine On to assess the school’s existing lighting and prepare a proposal for a VEET subsidised LED lighting upgrade.
In order to tailor a solution that best met their requirements we audited Westall’s classrooms, offices, staff-rooms, hall and exterior. They wanted to reduce energy and maintenance costs, as well as improve the environmental performance and aesthetic appeal of the school.
Using a combination of LED tubes, globes and exterior floodlights, we were able to improve the lighting quality at Westall Primary School and save 65% on their lighting energy consumption and power costs. This all, with an impressive 77% return on investment in the first year.
The result was a significant energy cost and maintenance saving, enhanced working conditions for staff and students and a positive environmental outcome.
