Sports centre in Truro uses CP lighting control
CP Electronic’s Rapid lighting-control system with scene setting has been installed in the new sports centre of Truro School in Cornwall. It was specified by E3 Consulting Engineers of Bath for its ease of installation and simple control via standard light switches, handsets or from a central computerised source.
The £4.2 million Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre was officially opened by Sir Ben, a former pupil of the school. There are eight badminton courts, two squash courts, a dance studio and a fitness suite.
Michael Freke of E3 used the CP App online specification creator to browse energy-saving control apps and download specifications to suit the project. The Rapid system chosen for this project includes lighting-control modules, interfaces, presence detectors and photo-cells.
The sports hall is divided into four quarter sections, with wall-mounted sensors turning off lights if one section has not been used for more than 20 minutes.
Scene setting in the main all enables lights to be set to suit functions such as concerts, examinations and social events.
Absence detectors are also used in changing rooms, classrooms and the dance studio. Long-range detectors have been installed in all corridors.
