CP Northern delivers complete lighting control system for college
A networked lighting-management system for two new buildings on the Bede Campus of Sunderland College optimises the use of lighting to minimise energy consumption. CP Northern’s Rapid system was specified by consultants Desco in the very early stages of the design to support a comprehensive and flexible lighting-management strategy that would enable the lighting to be fine tuned to the needs of each space.
The £22 million expansion of the Bede campus includes a new sports hall with fitness suite, sports laboratories and teaching rooms. The other building provides a new performance hall, dance and drama studios, music recording studios and a digital film lounge.
The networked lighting-management system provides presence/absence control and daylight dimming as appropriate to each of the spaces being controlled. The system also has an interface to a DMX-based performance lighting system in the main hall of the performing-arts building.
The Rapid system is fully addressable and an easy-to-use graphical user interface. CP Northern provided a full turnkey design and commissioning service for the project.
