General

Pine Crest Centre is located in the bustling city of Pinetown and has catered to the community for over 30 years. The R200-million, 14-month multifaceted refurbishments began in January 2018 and included the addition of a new floor of retail beneath the original centre and a stylish overall design. It now boasts a brand-new contemporary look and over 100 stores. The centre caters to shoppers who desire a friendly, convenient and upmarket shopping experience.

Pine Crest Centre has renewed building aesthetics both on the interior and exterior with upgraded ablution facilities, installed new escalators, and added beautiful lighting supplied by Lighting Innovations Africa. The centre’s upgrade not only advances local shopping but also environmental responsibility. Eco-friendly, energy-saving equipment has been added to the centre.

Escalators and lifts were replaced with modern, energy-efficient models, while a low-energy lighting system was incorporated during the refurbishments.

Lighting Innovations Africa supplied a range of LED products including 3km of RGB Flexi-Cove LED strip with Bluetooth Connectivity (LI-Connect), the ATOM range of downlights in three sizes – MINI, MIDI and MAXI, recessed GOLA 60 linear modules and MITO moisture proof luminaires for the back-of-house areas and parking. The energy-efficient LED products ensured that the mall enjoyed significant energy savings as well as reduced maintenance requirements due to the long life of the new lighting solutions.
