50 PROJECT REPORT: EDUCATION & RESEARCH FACILITIES


Luceco, McCann Electrical and Ameresco partner to relight Edinburgh College


L


uceco has recently supplied an energy saving LED lighting upgrade to several campuses at Edinburgh College


including Sighthill, Milton Road, Granton, and Midlothian. To date there have been over 6000 energy saving LED luminaires installed through a partnership with Ameresco, Luceco and McCann Electrical. Ameresco is a leading renewable energy


and energy efficiency company offering ESPC-funded energy solutions for public and private organisations. ESPC (Energy Saving Performance Contract) is a third-party financing mechanism that allows building owners to fund energy-saving upgrades through savings made from future utility bills. Ameresco chose Luceco as their preferred lighting manufacturer for Edinburgh College. Platinum LED Downlights were installed


in the sports and health facilities at Milton Road along with open plan communal spaces such as cafeterias and foyers, offering possible running cost savings of up to 80 per cent.


LuxPanel luminaires were installed into seminar rooms and lecture theatres, high efficiency Backlit LuxPanels boasts a market leading efficacy of 152 Lm/cW, providing non-obtrusive but effective lighting in high traffic areas and improved glare control. Edinburgh College is committed to a more energy efficient and cost-effective future


throughout their estate, LED lighting from Luceco being a contributing factor, as well as maintenance on lighting provision being substantially reduced due the elimination of re-lamping of old luminaries.

Technal specified for Newcastle student living development


S


pecified for their long-term durability and visual impact advanced aluminium window, curtain walling and door


systems, from the Technal brand, have been installed at The Shield, a high-end student accommodation development close to Newcastle city centre on Stoddart Street. Technal is a part of the Hydro Group, a world leader in the building systems sector. Designed by xsitearchitecture, and developed and constructed by BAM, the building features a refined palette of external materials to animate the facade. These include brick, aluminium, bronze coloured cladding and standing seam, in a range of natural colours. Punctuating the visual mass of the three


blocks, Technal’s FY Visible 65mm windows make a significant aesthetic impact. Installed in a vertical configuration to contrast with the cladding’s horizontal line, side hung open out windows were mainly used across the project, with some top hung open out vents


and, as a result, were fitted with security clips. Also, due to their size, some corner windows high up on the building used reinforced mullions. Technal’s MX Visible Grid curtain walling


also featured – all fitted with stylish standard Technal-exclusive hardware including locking handles and releasable restrictors. To achieve optimum U-value in this instance, approximately 70 per cent of the windows on the building included spandrel glass, a ceramic toughened glass with foil-backed insulation to surface 4 of the unit. Each configuration was carefully designed to avoid disrupting outward views. At ground floor level to ensure maximum


security, any fixed light or fixed light with vent windows had to be Secured by Design


system was also specified for this project for its durability and design flexibility. The PY 55 doors were specified for their exceptional level of quality and are ideal for high traffic applications, helping to provide excellent security for busy buildings like this one. All of the systems have been finished in a contrasting black powder coating. One of the reasons the products were used


is that they not only create a stunning facade, but are also energy efficient, and met the low U values required of the building. Technal’s products are always specified due to their high quality – the FY 65 windows have zero snags, which is a testament to the robustness of the system.
