The humble beginnings of the design consisted of lighting calculations and concept drawings. With these in mind we were quickly able to offer the best solution for the client's specific requirements. In order to ensure that the fittings met the standards required, samples were made of all the special fittings.
One of the most exciting parts of the project in terms of the lighting were the special 600mm LED profile fittings specified by our client to illuminate the shop facades. With Regent Lighting Solutions' capabilities and expertise, we were able to design and manufacturing such a complete and specialised product.
The design instruction called for simplicity and clean lines and the absence of bulky fittings. With a predetermined fitting length, Regent was able to produce a solution which resulted in a combination of both light output and proportion.
The biggest challenge we faced was the mounting of the fitting into a horizontally confined space, leaving no room on top or at the bottom of the fitting. Regent therefore had to design a special mounting bracket allowing the fitting to be easily installed and removed for maintenance without the ability to remove the diffuser.
Regent Lighting is proud to have been part of the Lighting Solution for New Castle Mall.
