TheisCraft Lighting Controls has supplied the lighting and DALI control system for the redevelopment of Anglia Ruskin University’s Tindal building, including track spots, barn doors and honeycomb louvres. Emergency bulkheads and twin spots have been supplied with self test emergency functions that helps Anglia Ruskin work towards removing the need for manually checking each emergency light fitting.
Anglia Ruskin University is a public university in East Anglia, with main campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Peterborough and London. The 2500 sq. m Tindal Building is a four storey construction located on the fast-expanding Chelmsford Campus and is home to the Students’ Union, Student Support Services, Student Bar and Restaurant, and administration offices.
Working to a lighting controls design by TheisCraft’s John Bowden, a total of 160 DALI track spots were installed by Rydan Services Limited over two floors. LAMP Lighting’s white track and spots have been utilised on the first floor, whilst black track and spots were chosen for the ground floor, all providing various beam angles for optimum light positioning. Barn doors and honeycomb louvres were attached to some of the track spots to provide a more precise light control. RZB Flat polymero circular pendant fittings have been installed in the lounge area to compliment the surrounding décor and linear lighting was chosen for the office areas. For the student areas, warm 3000K lighting provides the flexibility to adjust the lighting to suit potentially changing spaces and features.
Anglia Ruskin is delighted to be able to offer its students this impressively upgraded facility.
