Bondholder lights up Gymshark with new smartLighting


Bondholder Scenariio Intelligent Infrastructures has completed the UK’s first commercial installation of Human Centric smartLighting (HCsL) at Gymshark’s new 42,000 sq ft HQ at Blyth Valley Business Park, Birmingham.

The lighting system creates comparable light within working space by adjusting the colour temperature to mimic the daylight curve of the sun (known as the circadian course). The new facility has the capacity for up to 450 new positions, with the creation of 150 new jobs across the Midlands in next 12 months alone.

Scenariio worked with award-winning design company Oktra, who undertook workplace consultancy process to engage with Gymshark’s company culture and explore new ways of working including state-of-the-art smart lighting and emergency lighting systems.

Scenariio’s Project Manager, George Pritchard said “The creativity, passion and vision that Gymshark have, has led to an amazing and unique space that is just a perfect fit for the Gymshark family.

“We were able to utilise industry leading lighting technology throughout new GSHQ to support the wellbeing and enhance the working day for everyone that is fortunate enough to work at or visit GSHQ.”
