BDP took on the challenge of providing lighting design to several areas of The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club. The lighting showcases the bold and


strong graphic identity for the new events venue, and the re-born cricket ground as a whole. The ability of the lighting design to contribute to LCCC’s carbon reduction commitment has set a precedent for all sports venues around the world. The project aims to obtain gold certification from the Green Business Tourism Scheme.


Eighty per cent of the lighting is


provided by low energy LED, reducing the building’s carbon footprint and energy costs.


Facade


Cool white LED lighting was integrated into the polycarbonate panelling system, providing back lighting to the exterior façade and the internal entrance.


Entrance and balcony circulation areas Clusters of LED downlights provide ambient lighting to the entrance area and circulation zones on each floor of the balcony areas. Visitors are drawn to the vertical access route by highlighting to the lift entrances using cove lighting.


Stairs The staircases have individual LEDs integrated into the stair stringers, creating a wash of light across the surface of each step with integrated emergency lighting.


Mezzanine bar RGB LEDs backlight the corrian feature 58


bar and cove detail above the serving area. LED downlights provide ambient lighting to the mezzanine bar area.


Event space


Each floating ceiling panel and acoustic end wall panels have perimeter RGB cove lighting, which forms the main feature lighting. Ambient and accent lighting is housed within blacked out ceiling troughs in the underside of the floating panels. The lighting provides a flexible environment – for example, for a conference which requires higher levels of light, continuous linear fluorescent luminaires provide the main ambient lighting to the space. In dining and event mode, remote controlled track mounted spotlights provide accent lighting within the main space controlled via an infra red controller.


Event space control system The event space lighting system is controlled via local LCD touch screen panels operated by staff allowing control of the space as one room or individual control for when the room is divided.


Second floor corridor


The second floor corridor space creates a sense of atmosphere and anticipation. Ambient lighting is provided by LED downlights, which create pools of light highlighting the importance of contrast in creating a dramatic environment.


External concourse Linear fluorescent battens are surface mounted to the underside of concrete formed terrace seating. The luminaires
