Welcome to our Autumn newsletter, bringing you up-to-date with what’s been happening in and around the Future Group. No one can have failed to notice the nights drawing in; winter’s on its way and the department stores are no doubt well on the way to fitting out this year’s Santa’s Grotto!
Autumn is a busy time of year for us at Future Lighting. With longer periods of darkness – and the lights switched on for more of the day - this is the optimum time to consider energy saving lighting. We offer a free lighting audit to all our clients, so if your block is looking less than bright and welcoming, give us a call. We’ll be happy to drop by and offer our advice.
Also, it’s the time of year to think about timeclocks. With the clocks changing, don’t forget to adjust all the time-sensitive settings on your lighting system. Otherwise you could end up falling foul of grumpy residents, left fumbling for their keys in the dark!

Announcing our new status as ARMA Partner
Following our award of Industry Supplier of the Year 2017 at this year’s ARMA Awards in July, we are proud to announce that we have become an ARMA Partner. An ARMA Partner is a company that is not directly involved in block management but whose services are essential to managing agents. This includes commercial service providers such as accountancy firms, solicitors, insurance, management services – and of course, block lighting. Being a Partner means that we are able to get involved in ARMA events and take advantage of a wide range of marketing and networking opportunities . This gives us the chance to get out and meet ARMA members to share ideas, get feedback on our current offer and use block managers’ specialist knowledge to help develop new products and services. So look out for us at an ARMA event in the near future - we look forward to meeting you.
Our expanding family
The Future Group is delighted to welcome Sarah Howe to our team. Sarah has more than five years’ experience in the electrical industry specialising in safety and quality control systems – and is now on board to keep us all in check!
Future Lighting has just completed a prestigious project at this desirable location, just minutes from Westminster Cathedral and a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace Gardens. This multi-office commercial building is part of the Grosvenor Estate owned by the Duke of Westminster and houses a range of blue chip companies. The eight storey building features a 40m high atrium which has just been refurbished as part of an upgrade of the communal areas. Future Lighting was commissioned to install a stunning lighting installation designed and manufactured by Italian lighting specialist Bocci. Total cost of this statement piece was £35k and the project was completed on time and within budget.
