The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre is Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trusts’s latest multi-million pound cancer unit. Situated adjacent to the District Hospital, the state of the art unit offers a holistic approach to cancer treatment and health and wellbeing.
The design brief called for the lighting to be functional yet subtle to make the atmosphere as relaxing for patients as possible. This was achieved throughout the space by careful consideration being taken at every step to accomplish a design which flows sympathetically with the buildings architecture. Hidden uplighting, concealed lighting and luminaires mimicking light wells were among the techniques included in order to achieve this.
A BREEAM excellent status was achieved through the use of intelligent controls and the latest LED technology throughout the space. The Centre boasts a comprehensive lighting control system, making the most of natural daylight provided by the building’s architectural glass facades and skylights for energy harvesting. The Centre also has a complete emergency lighting monitoring system which is linked to the Trust’s existing system.
