Randall House - London

Spurlite were approached by Addington Capital and their favoured electrical contractor Manstal Electrical to develop a lighting design for an office refurbishment project.

 

The ceilings in the development consisted of a mix of SAS plank type ceilings and plasterboard solid ceilings. This followed on the back of a previous project within which Spurlite had produced a modified luminaire to sit within a 525mm x 525mm ceiling grid. The developer liked the results achieved on this project and requested that Spurlite become involved with the Randall House development.

 

The developer wanted to create a clean common appearance across the office space, with luminaires in the different types of ceiling having similar aesthetics. The SAS ceiling was a 1375mm x 350mm plank ceiling and therefore necessitated a bespoke designed product. Spurlite had produced similar types of luminaire before so it was easy to develop the product to match the specific requirements of this project. To introduce the same appearance in the plasterboard section of the ceiling Spurlite designed a frame to sit with the plasterboard and house the same luminaire as used in the SAS plank ceiling, the result providing almost like for like luminaire appearance across the installation.

As the design developed it became clear to the developer that the ceiling would appear cluttered due to the number of extract grills required, Spurlite helped solve this challenge by introducing air handling slots into the luminaires which allowed the number of extract grills to be significantly reduced. The installation images show how successful the results are providing a finished lighting and air handling installation that provides a clean uncluttered ceiling. DALI Dimming drivers were used to control the LED boards within the luminaire to interface with a lighting control system that utilises daylight and movement detection to provide an energy efficient solution.

 

In addition to the office spaces Spurlite provided their unique “SUNSET DIM” LED down lighter to illuminate the reception, stairs and toilet areas. The aim was to create a more residential feel to these spaces rather than the traditional sterile commercial appearance. Utilising DALI dimming drivers and integral emergency lighting completed the installation. The dimming element gives the building user the opportunity to create different scenes and linked to lighting controls helps reduce energy costs. Our final product used within the installation was a 240V direct supply LED tape to provide effect lighting within the pelmet above the reception desk.
