Delmatic has upgraded its lighting management system at Kew House School in London by expanding, reprogramming and reconfiguring the system to provide the differing lighting levels and controls more suited to an educational application.
Kew House School, a former headquarters office building just near Kew Bridge is equipped with modern, cutting edge facilities, including a food technology room, an art studio, a design technology studio, several science labs and a music department with practice rooms plus communal spaces awash with colour and light to cater for up to 600 pupils aged 11-18 years.
The system, which controls lighting throughout the building, comprises a Head End PC with active graphical software which monitors and manages lighting throughout the project, Routers, Plug-in Lighting Control Modules (switching and dimming), Presence/Absence detectors and Multi-sensors. Fully flexible dimming control is provided throughout teaching and study spaces with switching in core areas.
This highly sustainable system provides energy efficiency through dimming, daylight linking, presence and absence detection, whilst enabling adaptation without changes to the installation from one use to another. The installation has achieved the high standards of sustainability required to achieve a BREEAM rating which encourages measures to accommodate future changes of use of a building over its lifespan.
