Case Studies
Bolton College, Bolton, UK
Greengate has supplied a fully
addressable DALI-based lighting
system to a new building at Bolton
College, providing flexible lighting
control managed through a front-end
PC, as well as automated testing
of emergency lighting and failure
The new 20,201m2 site incorporates
hair and beauty salons, a performance
area and performing and visual art
studios and a large sports hall and
gymnasium, as well as a new training
restaurant and catering facilities, and
a purpose built construction skills and
arts building located adjacent to the
new building.
In the light of the varied uses and
occupancy levels, consulting engineers
Gifford Manchester specified a highly
flexible lighting management system
that would also assure the college of
low cost of ownership.
Consequently, the lighting control
system is designed to dim lighting in
relation to daylight levels, as well as providing occupancy control in learning areas. Corridor-linking ensures that
access areas remain lit at 50% when adjacent rooms are occupied. Greengate also worked closely with the
college’s FM team to develop pre-defined lighting scenarios for individual learning areas.
In addition to the energy savings achieved through the lighting control, the project has addressed other areas
relating to cost of ownership. For example, Greengate liaised with modular wiring company Apex Wiring
Solutions to provide a complete plug and play solution, helping to reduce installation time.
In addition, the system provides automatic testing of emergency lighting with full documentation, freeing
maintenance staff from manual inspections. The enhanced lighting control will also extend lamp life so that relamping and lamp disposal costs are minimised.
The Greengate lighting management system at Bolton College comprises a 9-port pre-addressed DALI lighting
control module (LCM), a single circuit HW DALI LCM, a twin circuit HW DALI LCM and input units, universal
sensors and other lighting control equipment.
