Midlands Centre for Cyber Security, a joint venture between The University of Wolverhampton and Hereford Council, provides training to students and tenanted office space for up to 20 local cyber security businesses. Located on the Skylon Park, within the Hereford Enterprise Zone, the building was constructed by Speller Metcalfe by using cross laminated timber and pieced together on site. The build was supported by M & E Contractors Barrie Beards, with a wireless lighting scheme designed and manufactured by Flick Lighting.
Flick Lighting were invited by Barrie Beard Electrical Contractor to work alongside Speller Metcalfe to design and deliver a project brief that incorporated suspended lighting with integral wireless controls from Signify, using the Philips EasyAir SNS300 system.
The Stirling range was chosen as it can be continuously mounted in single piece lengths up to 2,800 mm and has an output of up to 15,900 lumens and efficacy at up to 113 Ll/cW. It has a range of chip options, with colour temperatures between 3000k and 5700k, 4000k being used on this project and CRI>84. Each room within the building had a different suspended raft arrangement, which meant the luminaire had to be manufactured to the raft design layout. The Stirling product matched the Revit drawings and was installed without any issues.
