Updated lighting for Surrey County Council uses Whitecroft Cascade fittings
As part of the refurbishment of these offices of Surrey County Council, some 1300 modified Cascade luminaires from Whitecroft have been installed.
Refurbishment of Surrey County Council’s Quadrant Court offices in Woking has included the replacement of Cat 2 luminaires with a range of fittings from Whitecroft Lighting. They include specially modified versions of Cascade luminaires to meet the needs of the project. This 4-storey block comprises 5400 m2 of office space. The work involved stripping out the building and reconfiguring it to new layouts for open-plan offices, meeting rooms, catering and break-out areas. Around 1300 Cascade luminaires were used. They were modified to accommodate two 14 W lamps. These fittings meet the brightness limits of LG3 2001 while injecting life into the ceiling plane and maintaining a neat ceiling line. Their advanced optics minimises the number of fittings required to achieve the desired light distribution. Lighting and other M&E services were designed by FaberMaunsell, whose Martin Valentine explains, ‘The Cascade luminaires give a nice glow with controlled brightness on the ceiling. This project has been put forward for the “Best out of city office development” award.’
