    Traxon Sympholight was a perfect match for such a dynamic and demanding scheme. Traxon Sympholight provides industry leading levels of control, flexibility and interfacing for architectural lighting solutions.

Barton Square in the Trafford Centre has been an incredible opportunity for Studiotech and IBT Controls to work alongside one another.  Our services go hand in hand but it’s a rare opportunity to work on such an iconic development together.

Designed by Hoare Lea Lighting, the architectural lighting was created to complement the iconic sweeping glass domes and barreled roofs of the centre.  Studiotech worked with Hoare Lea to develop the solution leading to the supply and commissioning of all the architectural lighting across the project.

Extensive planning went into this complex project, with IBT Controls developing sixty-four separate design drawings throughout the detailed design stage.  The control system needed to be able to send complex and dynamic commands to DMX luminaires, whilst from the same triggers also control DALI luminaire dimming profiles and colour temperatures to create truly stunning effects and transitions that bring the unique baroque style architecture to life.
