AIB Customer & Corporate HQ

AIB Buck Asterisk

Architects: RKD | M&E: Metec | Contractor: Structure Tone | Electrical: CJK

Shortlisted for Fit Out Project of the Year – Large Office

Dlight worked with RKD and Metec as the sole lighting suppliers for both projects. Dlight offered high output, low consumption luminaires to meet the LEED requirements for this project.

To meet the LEED requirements, we selected Buck Asterisk fittings to illuminate the open space office areas. The Asterisk is a highly-efficient recessed downlighter that not only met the energy requirements but also met the aesthetic demands by fitting the colour scheme of the ceilings within those spaces.  

We were also tasked to design bespoke luminaires for all of the 11 meeting & conference rooms. AIB’s new HQ workspace embodies the values of openness, collaboration and transparency to drive their mission as a customer-centric bank of change, adapting to meet a diverse range of needs of their customers.
