Modern lighting reduces connected load by 40%

Trilux, lighting, LEDs

The connected lighting load for the Watershed arts centre in Bristol has been reduced by 40% by an all-LED system developed and specified by Arup’s lighting team for the public, conference and office areas, with Trilux lighting for the back-office zone.

Mike Matthews, Trilux project engineer, explains, ‘The main objective for the office area was to have a lighting scheme that would help to rejuvenate and refresh the admin areas for staff. Our Lateralo range provided the optimum solution. The innovative optic provides outstanding visual comfort, ideal for working offices. Visually it provides a striking office statement but when switched-off the optic is transparent, enabling the extremely flat luminaire to discreetly float in the space.’

The building’s original lighting installation included layers of luminaires installed during previous maintenance or refurbishment programmes. In many cases, luminaires were fitted with tungsten-halogen lamps. The new all-LED installation prioritised flexibility and took full consideration of both the building’s original architectural features and current occupancy patterns.
