CPN Lighting has supplied a comprehensive lighting-management system for the new £15.7 million Remembrance Centre at the National Memorial Arboretum. The system uses a range of products to tailor the lighting control to the needs of each space, whilst minimising the environmental impact of operating the building.

Opened by Prince William, the National Memorial Arboretum honours the fallen and recognises service and sacrifice. The Arboretum forms part of the National Forest, with 30 000 maturing trees and over 330 memorials.

The new Remembrance Centre provides a gateway into the 150 acre site and includes exhibition and interpretation spaces, retail space, a restaurants, cafe and learning centre. The centrepiece of the project is a new public square known as Heroes’ Square.

In the restaurant area, CPN Lighting supplied a purpose-built lighting control panel that has both DALI dimming from DALI gateway units and single channel lighting-control modules for mains switching. The brief aimed to utilise natural light within the building to limit the energy used. A scene-setting panel for manual control has up to eight settable scene options, enabling the restaurant to be split into three areas requiring differing light levels with each having a dedicated photocell for individual light control.

The main office area is being controlled by CPN lighting-control modules, each with ten fully addressable channels PIR detectors having a combined detector and photocell, enabling a constant light level to be maintained.

CPN also installed a combination of microwave and presence detectors in corridors and toilets within the building.
