‘Brilliant’, ‘Spectacular’, ‘Better than we could have expected’ were just three comments that Nick Bennett heard when the new LED colour change floodlights were switched on to illuminate the Talk Talk’s offices in Shepherd Bush.
LKL Lighting had just completed an exterior floodlighting project for the internationally renowned telecommunications company Talk Talk. LKL designed, supplied and commissioned this dramatic floodlighting scheme which has transformed the building into a highly visible landmark site which will now be viewed by thousands of motorist as they travel in and out of London on the main arterial road, the A3220 West Cross Road, as it passes through Shepherd’s Bush. The site is also highly visible from the adjacent Westfield Shopping Centre.
The lighting scheme was designed by Senior Lighting designer Matt Keir, the order was secured by and project managed by Nick Bennett the manager of exterior lighting and LED specialist LKL Lighting, and programmed and commissioned by Technical Manager Martin Dyche. Nick Bennett commented that this project demonstrated the ‘team work and team effort’ put in by the LKL staff to ensure a major installation of this size is completed without a hitch. The current lighting scheme changes colours every hour; it can however be programmed in a myriad of different individual colours and different colour sequences which can be phased according to the clients requirements.
The floodlights were installed by electrical contractors George E Buxton of Bishops Stortford.
The floodlighting design scheme incorporates 30 off ColorReach™ Powercore RGB colour changing LED floodlights manufactured by Philips SSL ColorReach™ Powercore combines unprecedented output and digital control to make LED sources viable for even the largest-scale exterior transformations. With more than 4,000 lumens of output and a 400-foot projection, the fixture brings saturated color and dynamic effects to large buildings, monuments, bridges and towers.
