We were approached by Mount Kelly College in Tavistock to design a lighting scheme for their main corridor which we completed in March 2019.
Our brief was to highlight the architectural details within the corridor, such as the stone archways and pillars, but to mainly focus on the portraits of the head teachers. There was also a requirement for practical lighting in the space which had previously been dark and not fit for purpose.
As part of our lighting design, we carried out a site survey and created a Dialux Lighting Planning Model of the area to assist us with achieving a suitable coverage of light in the space.
The client wanted to be able to control the lighting and control the dimming levels depending on the time of day, so we designed and installed a Rako system to allow the client to recall lighting scenes.
The installation had to be completed within the school holidays so we needed to ensure that the products we specified were available within a 2-3 week lead time or ‘off the shelf’. We ended up using a combination of Illuma track and spot lights for the main artwork lighting and Deltalight surface mount down-lights for the general lighting. We also used some in-ground up-lights for the archways from Abstract.
Headmaster, Adam Reid, was due to retire from the school before the Easter break and so as the driving force behind this project, he wanted to have this lighting scheme installed before he left. He and the team at Mount Kelly were very happy with the end result.
