Merrion Centre Car Park Leeds - Diagrid Feature Lighting

Posted in Projects

Client:  AF Connell

Scope of Works:  Design, fabrication, installation and control of dynamic feature lighting

This stunning multi-storey car park feature consists of 378 individual RGB LED lights all specified, designed and installed by Studiotech specifically for this project.  Each lamp is individually addressable and allows for dynamic and dramatic light shows to be displayed, thereby enticing the visitor and enhancing the whole retail experience.

Working alongside the architects, The Harris Partnership, Studiotech provided a complete turnkey solution ensuring all stakeholder expectations were exceeded. 

Studiotech was responsible for installing the whole of the feature lighting system at The Merrion Centre car park including the LED nodes, the bespoke housings, the control system, network cabling, power/data cables and the field enclosures.  This intricate installation involved a high degree of detailed co-ordination with all trades concerned and the main and electrical contractor

Another key component to successful completion of the project was in the programming. With the system having the capability to provide a seemingly infinite number of scenes, it was important to take the client's ideas and translate them into programmable and dynamic lighting scenes.. The control system has the flexibility to receive program updates at any time whilst having numerous scenes pre programmed which are time not only time scheduled, but are also triggered throughout the year on key calendar dates and events. 

The resultant lighting now provides a variety of effects and scenes and it cannot be denied that the visual displays produced are exciting, innovative and have created another iconic destination in the major city centre.
