reference_university-of-manchester_roscoe-building_01

Project Overview
The Roscoe building consists of two large lecture theatres on the ground floor seating up to 700 people with 19 flexible syndicate rooms and additional breakout rooms for conferences. The entrance to the building has a large foyer that is the focal point to students, the lighting had been previously illuminated with fluorescent products and over time was deemed to be poorly lit and high in maintenance, it needed a total face lift including new room décorative finishes.

Our Solution
Our project brief was for energy saving product solutions with longer lamp life and less maintenance. In order to uplift the lighting levels and illuminate the foyer area we used a combination of linear recessed, pendant mounted LED products supplemented with LED downlights and track mounted spots around the periphery of the foyer. All luminaires supplied with DALI control gear.

Quiet and extraordinary garden

a7s0831

Who said that convalescent and care buildings for the older generation must be grey, standardised and boring? Answer: Most likely no one. Nonetheless, there are many such constructions in Norway. Precisely why Luranetunet in Os Municipality has garnered so much attention. Broadly speaking, a supervised residential and convalescent centre that in many ways is how we usually think of them – but it offers something more: Situated at 60 degrees north, twenty or so kilometres south of Bergen, a tropical garden has been built as an integrated component of the centre. 1300 square metres of covered garden, filled with tropical plants, a fish pond and “Bamboo Bar”. 

“When we celebrated the opening in wintry November, we numbered 120 sat at the tables, but the lighting and garden surrounding us created such an atmosphere that we could be forgiven for thinking we were instead sitting in sunny Southern Europe.” Aud Winsents, Unit Manager at Luranetunet, speaks fondly of the unique garden in her charge. 

“The garden’s very popular. It’s become like an in-house venue for us, where we hold numerous leisure activities, such as singing, drawing courses, afternoon tea, movie evenings. We have taken these activities out of rooms into the open, tropical surroundings. We also have a koi fish pond. We built the “Bamboo Bar”, where we serve cordial/juice and water, and have evening functions where beer and wine are also an option,” says Winsents.

Luxuriant atmosphere
In total, Luranetunet has 155 residents living in nine different divisions, a tenth will be completed in 2019, which will increase the number of places to 175. The centre offers both nursing care places and residential apartments with 24-hour supervision, and the garden enables the elderly to venture “outside” all year round. A common room, so to speak, for both users and family members. A number of benches have been placed conveniently, and the garden can also be enjoyed from a gallery on the second floor. 

1400 plants, divided into 35-50 different species, are the source for creating the luxuriant atmosphere. A vital component that enables the plants to thrive and grow, is the lighting. Glamox has supplied luminaires for the entire centre, no less than 1500 in total; of which a wide assortment are installed in the garden. Here are bollard lights, park luminaires, and underwater lighting in the koi pond. Of particular interest are the floodlights with so-called RGB technology (Red-Green-Blue). Red LED light specifically ensures better plant growth. 
“The lighting is toned down in the evening and at night, and we are delighted with the solutions that were selected. There has been no negative feedback, in fact, quite the opposite,” says Unit Manager Aud Winsents.

“The lighting is toned down in the evening and at night, and we are delighted with the solutions that were selected. There has been no negative feedback, in fact, quite the opposite,” says Unit Manager Aud Winsents.

More alert and energetic with Human Centric Lighting
All rooms at Luratunet, the construction of which was completed in the autumn of 2017, have been fitted with modern LED luminaires. One section has also been fitted with the so-called HCL solution (Human Centric Lighting). This is a lighting solution that imitates daylight in intensity and colour temperature, which can also affect us humans, biologically. HCL can provide positive effects to our mood, quality of sleep, wellbeing and job performance. 
“We haven’t undertaken any scientific research, but the reports so far from staff working there, are that they have noticed a significant difference. They feel they are more alert and have more energy, mentioning there is a better atmosphere. They often use the areas as a pleasure walk for the joy of the experience,” says Aud Winsents. 

Open to all
“This isn’t primarily an institution, it’s first and foremost a home”, Tor Inge Døsen told the local newspaper when the tropical garden was officially opened in November 2017. Døsen is a former project manager at Os Municipality, who took the initiative to build the distinctive garden. All who want to visit are welcome, as both the municipality and Luranetunet are eager for the garden to be a vibrant place where people can meet at their leisure. Luranetunet’s older residents are also able to have ‘get-togethers’ here, such as birthday celebrations and similar with family and friends in “Diamanten”, (“the Diamond”), a popular meeting place in our very own tropical garden.

Heathrow Airport LED upgrade

heathrow_airport_dsc7819park

Recently a major upgrade to LED lighting has been carried out, in cooperation with Glamox Limited. The project includes a variety of key locations at the airport, such as terminals, control posts, car parks and more.

Important cost savings 
This investment in the latest energy efficient technology will contribute to improved passenger ambience, and at the same time reduce the airport’s energy and CO2 consumption.

Heathrow has set a target to reduce it's absolute CO2 emissions from fixed sources by 30% on 1990 levels by March 2020. Significant savings will also be made on maintenance costs:

Heathrow, a major hub airport, has particularly high costs of access for maintenance. In all areas maintenance can only be carried out during a few hours at night. The airport’s new LED lighting solutions are virtually maintenance free, so that 100% lighting levels can be upheld without cumbersome and time consuming light source changes.

Project descriptions

Project 1: Car parks at Terminals 2, 3 and 4
In the terminal car parks most of the lighting was provided by traditional 5ft 2x58 Watt corrosion proof luminaires, using approximately 122 Watt each. The airport was aiming to reduce energy costs and maintenance cycles, while improving the experience for the passengers/users.

Our solution
Looking at the client’s requirements and specifications for these types of areas, we looked at a one-for-one replacement using 4ft Glamox GPV2 LED running at 40 watt per fitting. This enabled us not only to meet the requirements, but also to use a third of the power consumption, showing massive energy savings.

In some circumstances 2ft GPV2 LED were used on the perimeters in place of single 5ft luminaires. Utilizing external light sensors and daylight switching, further reductions in the energy consumption were obtained. On the ground floor of the Terminal 3 car park we used the i80 at high level in place of discharge lights and incorporated occupancy sensors on alternate lights.
 
Product types: GPV2 LED & i80



Project 2: Terminal 4 entrance canopy (Arrivals)

The old terminal entrance lighting was on 24/7. Here the airport was using 250 Watt metal halide high bay luminaires recessed into the ceiling, which is 8 metres high. These luminaires had started to fail and fall into disrepair. The airport was looking at reducing the energy consumption and improving maintenance. Access was a major issue.

Our solution
By using Glamox i80 mounted within the recess and supplying an external bezel we actually improved the energy consumption by 69%, while contributing greatly to improved maintenance. With the aid of external daylight sensors some 70% of the luminaires are now switched off during daylight hours, thus providing further energy savings.

Product types: i80 LED 8000 DALI 840 MB HTG


 
Project 3: Passenger Subways linking Terminals 1, 2 and 3

The passenger subway linking the terminals at Heathrow were lit by a combination of linear fluorescent tubes and recessed and surface mounted CFL downlights. Subway transfers were not a particularly pleasant experience for passengers. It was important that we should be able to enhance the lighting in these areas.

Our solution
In cooperation with lighting designers Studio Fractal and installer Crown House Technologies, it was decided to redesign the entire system’s lighting scheme. We used Glamox C50-SR LED RGB for the wall wash. This makes it possible to change the colour of the walls in order to make the lighting more exciting. All recessed and surface mounted downlights were substituted with LED models. As a result, the passenger tunnels are now well lit and have a much more pleasant ambience.

Product types: C50-SR RGB, D70-R195 LED and i75 LED



Project 4: Security control posts

The vehicles security control posts are a particularly important part of an airport’s security system. All vehicles entering the airport area are thoroughly checked in full light, 24/7. The old 250 Watt metal halide floodlights at some of the control posts were failing, diffusers were discoloured and maintenance was becoming an issue.

Our solution
An upgrade was made at a total of four security control posts. Changing to Glamox GPV2 LED luminaires gave good energy savings and reduced maintenance costs. We also suggested the use of Glamox i80 mounted on the columns using our turnable bracket. This again gave good energy savings and reduced maintenance costs.  It also enhanced the lighting in these areas to a very high standard. Airport management is now looking to roll this out to other control posts across Heathrow. 

Product types: i80 and GPV2 LED

Croft Medical Centre, Chelmsley Wood

croft_medical_8

Project Overview
Croft Medical Centre is an NHS practice under contract with NHS England, serving the local community. The practice moved into a brand new building in 2015. The owners were determined to create the best possible setting for patients and staff. At the new Croft Medical Centre, this includes not only functional architecture and clean aesthetics, but also modern lighting technology and lighting design.

Our Solution
Careful use of colour, furniture and lighting can make the atmosphere of a practice feel fresh and different. It can mitigate patients’ anxiety and stress as they enter the premises. For example may the use of decorative luminaires create intimacy and soften the clinical ambience. Still, a medical practice is a professional working environment, and ample lighting is required.

At Croft Medical Centre this has been solved by combining the installation of decorative lighting products with recessed luminaires and downlights throughout. The practice is a showcase for good lighting solutions.

Kinderdijk - From Marshlands to World Heritage

dsc09166

WE VISITED THE NEW VISITOR CENTRE AT THE Kinderdijk World Heritage site, recently opened by Princess Beatrix, Patron of the Dutch Mill Society. Of the 132 entries, the winning design came from the Hague-based architect firm M& DB. They consciously decided to design a modern, simple visitor centre to make it an easily distinguishable, contemporary addition to the traditional old mills. The use of glass walls creates transparency and allows visitors to feel a connection with the outside surroundings.

Small village - Great destination
The Kinderdijk World Heritage site is a gem of nature and culture in the polder landscape of the Netherlands. Only 600 people live in the village of Kinderdijk, but an estimated 700,000 visitors or more come each year for the Kinderdijk World Heritage site. Visitors include many international travellers, mainly from America and Asia who are brought in on cruise ships and coach trips, but it is a popular day trip destination and locals from the area often come to take a walk or to cycle around. An estimated 700,000 people visit the village each year; paying visitors can enjoy a boat cruise, visiting the mills, a guided tour or a film. No record is kept of visitors who choose to simply take a walk or cycle, enjoying the village without shelling out. Not only has the area been a registered World Heritage Site since 1997, but the Dutch government has also designated it as a protected “Natura 2000” nature reserve because it is home to unique species of birds such as the purple heron and black tern.

Water, willpower and wheels
All of the towns and villages in the Alblasserwaard polder are connected by water. A thousand years ago, the Alblasserwaard was a huge bog. The first people to live here permanently built their houses on the dunes so they could stay above water level in the event of a flood. The land was arable, attracting more and more people to the area who wanted to base their livelihoods around the trading towns in the Western Netherlands which were becoming wealthier at the time. Dykes were erected to keep the river water at bay. This meant rain and groundwater had free reign. In the thirteenth century, Count Floris V ordered the creation of the Water Authorities.
Floris V brought the inhabitants of the region together in these organisations to collectively manage the water. A network of ditches and canals drained the water from the polder to its lowest point - the Kinderdijk. Here, four sluices were built to let the water flow into the river Lek at low tide. The area was flooded in the Saint Elizabeth flood of 1421, and thousands of people drowned. It was a catastrophe, and the subsistence was an issue too, needing more and more power to discharge water from the polders to the river. The solution? The mills.

A system of mills and pumps has been installed over the centuries. The series of mills water passes through is made up of 3 polder mills and 16 mills known as bosom mills. Bosom mills are called this way in the Netherlands because a 'boezem' is a type of storage basin or a temporary reservoir. In deep polders like Kinderdijk, the water has to be raised in stages. The maximum lift is approximately 1.5 metres per mill wheel. The lowest mill draws the water to the basin, and the highest mill discharges the water into the river. Following the invention of the steam engine, two steam pumps began to be used in 1869. The first electric-powered pump was used in 1924. During the Second World War, the Germans seized all of the diesel, highlighting again how crucial the mills were when the polders were milled entirely using wind power.

Nowadays, two pumps pump water to the basins located on higher land, where the river flows into the Lek. The G.N. Kok mill can move even more water than 24 mills can handle together. Mortars are controlled by computers at J.U. Smitgemaal, based on water levels and current wind and weather forecasts. At Kinderdijk, 19 of the 20 mills can still be found today. They are on standby and can be deployed when needed. The oldest mill, Blokweer Museum Mill, dates from 1630 and is over a century older than the other mills. Of the 19 mills, 14 are inhabited - some by the same family for many generations. Two museum mills are open to visitors, with a third scheduled to be opened soon.

Lighting emphasises the simplicity
Glamox worked on the lighting plan for A&B Electrotechniek. Though the plan might look boring on paper, in reality it’s obvious how the lighting emphasises the simplicity of the site and enhances its transparency.
Different versions of the D70 downlight have been used in the reception, shop, hospitality area, corridors, and toilets, while i40 luminaires have been installed in the technical areas and i60 luminaires in the kitchen. E80 emergency lights have been installed around the emergency exits.

Theo Vijfvinkel, project leader at A&B Elektrotechniek, is enthusiastic: “We were asked by P van Leeuwen, the construction company, to come up with a proposal. It was a really special project for me - I was born and grew up around here, and when I was a child I went swimming around the Mills. A connection like this makes a project even better and more appealing - luckily, it was able to fit in around the other projects I had scheduled. The team was under pressure as the visitor centre had to be open in time for the summer season, but everyone involved pulled together and everything went smoothly. Glamox was an incredibly easy partner to work with - flexible, proactive, and with good delivery timeframes. When I look at what we’ve managed to achieve, I feel satisfied.”

Pride and Unity
A number of local sponsors came together to help create the visitor centre. An amazing 220 people volunteered to work alongside 60 employees at SWEK, the Stichting Werelderfgoed Kinderdijk, a foundation working to conserve, manage and maintain the mills and promote learning about them. The enthusiastic volunteers all worked in shifts as hosts, millers, skippers, guides, or shop staff and helped to maintain the environment. 

In UNESCO’s words
UNESCO said: “the network of nineteen windmills in Kinderdijk-Elshout shows the incredible contribution the Dutch people have made to technology that keeps water under control. Work on water infrastructure began in the Middle Ages, when it was needed to drain agricultural land and villages, and continues to this day. The area has everything you’d expect to see standing alongside this technology - dykes, reservoirs, pump stations, administrative buildings, and the 19 beautifully preserved windmills.”

Illuminating Finland's coolest tourist attraction

ref_kemi_luminlinna_2

Kemi SnowCastle has attracted winter tourists since 1996. Now it's possible to enjoy snow and ice round the year, as the new main building houses a “snow experience space” with -5°C temperature all year round. The building also provides numerous other services.
”The SnowCastle operates all year and offers versatile restaurant and meeting services. In between meetings, one can drop by the ice room to cool down, to play in the snow or to have a go at the ice slide" says Susanna Koutonen from Kemin Matkailu Ltd.
The main building was opened in March 2019, on the 150th anniversary of Kemi.

Clean white light
The lobby of the two-storey building has a blue reception desk which looks like it's made of ice cubes. The high glass windows in the lobby and the shop windows are decorated with snowflakes.
“The colour temperature of the light in the room next to the experience space is mainly 4,000 Kelvin, which coincides with the snow white of the wall and ceiling surfaces,” says Seppo Penttinen, electrical designer at UpNet Engineering Ltd.

The ice cream parlour serves delicious ice cream sundaes, and the café serves drinks with ice flakes, amongst other things. From the lobby, there are stairs to the viewpoint restaurant which seats 300 people. The ice cream parlour, the restaurant, the café and the spa section are illuminated with Glamox D70 downlights.
"We were already familiar with the Glamox products, and we knew they were first-rate and reliable. The purchasing and the installation of the light fixtures for space was very easy. Everything worked flawlessly", Penttinen says.
The SnowCastle's large kitchen and cooking areas are illuminated with C63 square lights, embedded in the ceiling. "Cooking requires good, glare-free and even lighting. The IP55 enclosure ensures that steam from the kitchen does not penetrate the lights. The surfaces of the lights are also easy to clean. Good impact resistance ensures that the light fixtures can withstand impact so parts of it will not be scattered around the space, ”Penttinen explains.
The ice restaurant in the snow experience space is decorated with a fairy tale castle theme and it's the perfect venue for weddings and other events. "The venue offers princesses their fairy tale castle wedding with an ice sculpted pumpkin carriage and everything", Koutonen says. 

Lights as part of the interior
The lights in almost all the areas attached to the main building are connected to the DALI control system.
The DALI system allowed us to create a versatile operating system and the light dimming feature has proved to be very useful. The wall panels and the operating system are equipped with automated settings, such as the northern lights setting which dims the space with a press of a button. The light levels can also be adjusted by hand", Penttinen explains.

 ”It's important that the lights can be adjusted to suit everyone in the work space. Some prefer to work in better lit areas than others", Koutonen says.

 The office space, the souvenir shop and the reception area are illuminated with C90 and C95 module lights. Their clear and minimalistic shape lights every corner of the space. "The light fixtures are also interior elements in these areas and an important part of the architecturally stylish space,” Koutonen continues.
The technical spaces, service rooms and the safari service areas are illuminated with i60 lights. The i80 and i85 lights are fitted to the high ceilings of the maintenance areas and the loading bays. They are extremely durable and efficiently light the work areas.

Clean energy from nature
The experience space is 400 m2 in size and contains more than 100 000 kilos of natural ice.
 "Many of our foreign visitors have only seen ice in their cocktail glass. Here they get to marvel at the enormous ice cubes cut from the sea and the river. We are also telling a story about the freezing of the Finnish waters and the clean snow", Koutonen rejoices.
Renewable energy and sustainable energy use are the corner stones of the SnowCastle area operation.
There is a solar plant on the roof of the main building. The buildings are heated with geothermal heating and cooled with geothermal wells. Waste heat is salvaged and used to heat the water.
