Creating a sustainable future for businesses

Creating a sustainable future for businesses

A Lake District energy management firm is helping businesses in the area create more sustainable environments by kitting out hotels, offices and homes with the latest smart technology.

Windermere-based Epixx are installing lighting, cinema and security systems which will allow businesses to become more aware of their responsibility towards the environment.

Matt Holmes and Ben Tomlinson co-founded the business two years ago, and have since grown numbers to a team of six, as well as installing technology in some of the most impressive homes, hotels and restaurants in Cumbria and Greater Manchester.

The firm’s portfolio includes sound and lighting systems for the Church Suites at the Cranleigh Hotel, Bowness; and the entire electrical, sound, lighting, music, TV and security systems for the new Fizzy Tarte champagne bar in Bowness.

They are now the main AV contractor for the NW Design Centre in Manchester, the industry leaders for interior fit out and refurbishment projects, who design and manufacture innovative  furniture to bars, restaurants and hotels throughout the UK and Europe, and for whose showroom Epixx installed all the AV systems. And they have a new deal to install sound systems in VIP boxes at Leicester Tigers rugby ground.

However, the young firm also want to turn their attention towards home owners too.

“Gone are the days when the heating was either on or off,” says Matt.

“Today we can install a completely bespoke, intelligent climate control system that manages your heating and air conditioning, to keep you perfectly comfortable.

“They can be remotely controlled from one simple touch screen interface or app, or left to automatically allocate heating according to where you are in your home.

“It’s not just our own concern for a sustainable future. We’re finding that clients now are much more aware of their own responsibilities. They want the latest gadgets and comforts, but not at the expense of further damage to the planet.”

Epixx work with architects and designers to incorporate their ideas in new builds and conversions, as well as fitting new sound and lighting systems.

“We can recommend and optimise the most suitable combination of technology, integrating everything so the overall solution is greater than the sum of its parts,” adds Matt.

“It’s the technology that has leaped from futuristic sci-fi fantasy to reality in just one generation.”
