Lighting-control system enables building to change use from office to school

The Delmatic lighting-control system made it a simple matter to convert this building from an office headquarters to a school.

Delmatic has upgraded its lighting-managed system at Kew House School in London by expanding, reprogramming and reconfiguring the system to provide differing lighting levels and controls more suited to an educational application. The building was formerly a headquarters office and has been converted to a school for up to 600 pupils aged 11 to 18.

Facilities include a food-technology room, art studio, design-technology studio, several science laboratories and a music department with practice rooms. There are also communal spaces.

The Delmatic system controls lighting throughout the building. It comprises a head-end PC with active graphical software that monitors and manages lighting, 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.

The system provides energy efficiency through dimming, daylight linking, presence and absence detection. It also enables lighting to be adapted from one use to another without changes to the installation itself
