RIEGENS Create The Right Light At Dundee University

Riegens Lighting has supplied a selection of luminaires for the Principals Suite at one of Scotland’s leading further education centres, Dundee College. The key criteria for the newly refurbished area was to provide a comfortable and pleasant working environment for the Principal and staff, in addition to a good quality light for the various hospitality/meeting areas.

Dundee College has five locations within the city with the Principal Suite situated at Kingsway Campus. The college offers a wide range of courses for either full-time or part-time learning. Lighting for the suite was specified by local consulting building services engineers BBH Partnership, who ensured that the right light levels were achieved with minimum energy consumption using high efficiency T5 and compact fluorescent lamps.

To provide a bright and even uniform illumination in the reception and corridor areas, Riegen’s Concido recessed downlighters were chosen incorporating 2 x 42W compact fluorescent lamps. Designed to suite a number of applications, the Concido range has been engineered to offer the option of a wide range of decorative and technical attachments to suit each individual project. For Dundee College the downlighters incorporate a 4 in 1 glass cone within the luminaire to provide an individual and more aesthetically pleasing style.

For the main Principals office, which contains a 'breakout' area for presentations and meetings, a mixture of Concido downlighters and Codos semi-recessed 600 x 600mm luminaires have been installed. Codos provides a direct/indirect light distribution and utilises a double parabolic louvre with a perforated dropped central unit. Perfect for integration within most ceiling types, the luminaire houses 3 x 24W compact fluorescent lamps and enables lighting compatibility according to LG7 office lighting guidelines. All lighting in offices and meeting rooms within the suite are switch dim controlled via a retractive switch to ensure required illuminance levels can be manually maintained.

For areas within the building with limited void depths, such as the shower room and toilets, BBH specified a Concido low profile luminaire, which can be mounted into ceilings where the void is only 100mm. Using 2 x 18W lamps, the luminaire has a mirror finish and, along with other luminaires in the Concido range, can offer a range of attachments to suit each individual project. An IP rated diffuser was used within the toilet / shower areas.

Following installation, BBH director Tony Hutchison commented “We have produced a bright and airy ambience within the Principal Suite using Riegens luminaires”.
