Cooper supplies diverse range of luminaires for new Doncaster campus

Oct 29, 2007

Cooper Lighting and Security has supplied a diverse range of luminaires to satisfy the varied lighting requirements of the newly constructed building that is now home to Doncaster College.

Known as The Hub, the £65million waterfront campus in the centre of Doncaster offers many state-of-the-art educational facilities, including a 100-seat lecture theatre, a 200-seat drama studio and a two-storey learning resource centre, as well as first-class catering, sports and leisure facilities.

With such vastly different areas to illuminate, the lighting scheme for the building inevitably featured a wide variety of luminaire types. In fact, the scheme devised by Cooper Lighting and Security’s lighting design department, working closely with main contractor N.G. Bailey, used no less than 14 different products from Cooper’s extensive Crompton Lighting range of commercial and industrial luminaires, together with a selection of Menvier and JSB self-test exit signs and emergency luminaires.

Classrooms were lit by either Synthesis or Wafer T5 suspended fluorescent luminaires, both of which offer a combination of direct and indirect illumination in line with the latest lighting design standards. Laboratory illumination was provided by Moduseal IP65 modular recessed fluorescent luminaires.

Lecture theatres used the Clareo range of pendant architectural downlights, while public areas and atria were illuminated by Reef wall-mounting uplighters and Solstar compact fluorescent downlights.

At the other end of the spectrum, plant and maintenance areas used the Tufflite range of robustly constructed IP65 luminaires and a number of Zone II fluorescent luminaires, which carry full ATEX certification and an EEx n classification.

Emergency lighting included Menvier Recessed Safe Edge and JSB Royalux exit signs, along with Menvier New Safe 8 self-contained 8W T5 luminaires and Menvier Beamlite twin-spot luminaires.

As well as being able to offer such a wide variety of different products, Cooper Lighting and Security helped to speed up the installation process by supplying the luminaires pre-wired with cable and connectors of the customer’s choice.
