Our Work at Ards Blair Mayne Leisure Centre


Project Description

The leisure centre is without an on-site maintenance team and is open to the public for 16 hours a day. Thus, the equipment chosen needed to be as maintenance-free as possible.

We designed all systems for this project to be fully integrated and managed from a single front-end PC interface.

Given the size and complexity of this project, our entire portfolio of products was required. This included lighting from Philips, Lightnet, Color Kinetics, Luminious Textiles, and ProLED, and controls from Pharos, Dynalite, and Occuswitch.


Project Delivery

We designed a fully integrated system and provided the electrical contractors H.M Electrics with all the products and information needed to successfully deliver the project.

The equipment was delivered on a phased basis allowing the client to receive the required items just in time for installation.

The final system runs on a fully automated basis from morning to night. This intelligent system enters operational mode upon the deactivation of the intruder alarm, and regulates lighting requirements throughout the day in accordance with occupancy and natural daylight availability.

All unnecessary lighting automatically switches off upon the closure of the centre, with the entire building shutting down once the alarm is reset by the cleaners.

All external lighting is controlled by an astronomical clock that mimics sunrise and sunset times.
