THE £55 MILLION Faculty of Business and Law at the University of the West of England has opened with high-efficiency lighting, a sophisticated controller and a central battery system.
The landmark 17,200 square-metre project comprises Bristol Business School and Bristol Law School, both of which provide a range of undergraduate, postgraduate, higher research and professional courses.
Bristol Business School and Bristol Law School educate future professionals in all aspects of business and law – from entrepreneurship, management, leadership, strategy through to economists, accountants, marketing and human resources.
In addition to academic law courses they also train barristers and solicitors and provide relevant research into important business and law issues that confront both businesses and society.
In an installation carried out by Whitehead Building Services, Zumtobel have created a lighting solution similar to that of natural daylight in all the circulation spaces, with their Panos evolution luminaires.
The LED downlight range has a colour rendering index of Ra>80, a choice of three luminaire luminous flux packages with 1000 lm, 1800 lm or 2400 lm and is available in either warm (3000K) or intermediate (4000K) colour temperature.
The unobtrusive Panos evolution is designed to disappear into the architecture. The rest rooms are also illuminated with Panos evolution.
Slotlight infinity are also installed in the circulation spaces creating a streamlined strip of uniform light with no shadows.
Lincor direct/indirect pendant luminaires – a section that’s only 63 mm square – illuminate the office spaces and mock court suites.
Mellow Light V has also been installed in office areas to deliver well-balanced illumination of the work space, helping to prevent glare and the so-called ‘cave effect’.
The result is a contemporary installation with engaging spaces that work in unison with the new facility.
It also offers pleasant colour temperatures and the option to adjust them to an individual’s preference to support users with all activities.
