Helderberg Centre is an exciting retail centre which promises to compliment and strengthen the retail offering in the Somerset West and Strand area.
The most interesting part of this project is the combination of high and low level external parking lights. The 10m high poles with 3 x Pluto 250W Metal Halides are responsible for the provision of general light levels. In contrast, the lower level Europa 80W CFL Post Tops are used to create attractive focal points at the entrances. This concept was birthed from a budget perspective and blends together well in the final project.
After doing precise lighting calculations we were very pleased to be able to use 250W Metal Halide instead of the more popular 400W Pluto floodlights; this resulted in an extensive energy saving.
We supplied “Cladded” LED pendants for the internal entrance of the mall. This was a collaboration between Regent and a cladding specialist to ensure that the client received a lighting solution with the desired effect. We supplied the LED Linear fittings and the pendant structure and the cladding was done by the specialists.
