Lightworks Area Lighting

Ive had some trouble trying to get the right lighting for the animation scene, none seem good enough and I know that it's my lighting that failing me. But I did find that area lighting might be the answer therefore I want to try area lighting within the warehouse to create a simple lighting scene for simulating the autohandler design in animation lab.

Ive attached the warehouse which is still under construction but this simple design serves the purpose for animation I think. All the animation is done but until I solve the lighting Im stuck. Not sure how to setup area lighting can anyone offer suggestions?

Have you seen this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foK5lCWtg-A
It uses luminance point lights to illuminate a warehouse type area.

I have always found area lights to require a lot of additional time during renders.
