Our Lady & St Aidan's RC Church - Wallsend, Tyne & Wear
In conjunction with Park Lighting Design and J Humphrey & Partners Ltd Consulting Engineers we were asked to create a lighting solution for this Roman Catholic Church to stand out with a new clean flexible internal lighting installation.
With the unusual structure of the building, we were asked to create a scheme that would both highlight its new sloping ceiling and ultimately achieve the required lighting aspects of the environment.
This was achieved by using a simple method of linear T5 fluorescent fittings mounted on a self fabricated adjustable bracket and installed using a modular plug and play system above the pelmet to illuminate both directly and indirectly. These fittings were supplied with a Philips long life Xtra lamps to keep any maintenance to a minimum. Additional lighting was installed utilising low energy decorative fittings to highlight important aspects and features within the Church.
To make our scheme as flexible as possible we used dimming control throughout with a scene set 12 channel dimmer system. This gives the ultimate, yet simple flexibility for the congregation.
