B.E.G delivers controls for St John’s college Cambridge

B.E.G, St John's College, Cambridge

Building controls specialist B.E.G. has helped deliver an integrated lighting control strategy at St John’s College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge.

The ancient college, which has some parts dating back to 1200’s, required a lighting control solution as part of the refurbishment of the New Court building. The controls would be used to reduce operating costs, minimise light pollution and fit in with the architectural sensitivities of the building.

Cambridge-based Baulogic, which specialises in the design, installation and maintenance of building control solutions, in conjunction with B.E.G, carried out a site survey and selected the B.E.G wall mounted Indoor 180 KNX detector. In a few areas, the ceiling mounted detector PD4 KNX SM was used, which gives coverage of up to 24m diameter. When fine tuning the detection areas, the strategic decision was made to fit some detectors with lens shields. This prevented lights being triggered when people are just walking past, as opposed to entering an area.

Mark Gedrych, director at Baulogic Limited, says: “The detectors blend nicely into the renovated 1830’s neo-Gothic spaces whilst still providing excellent coverage to catch Fellows and guests as they exit their rooms surrounding the lobby spaces on all sides.”
