The scheme was originally designed in a 4000K CCT, which met the criteria for the car park but was later changed to Sunlike LED.
Garry Edwards, commented, “We recently attended DW Windsor’s London CPD and were really impressed with Alan Grant’s presentation on Sunlike LED. This scheme stood out as being an ideal use of Sunlike, given the tear drop bowl arrangement and proximity to residential properties. Whilst the existing lanterns utilise a tear drop bowl, the new luminaires would use a 4000K colour temperature compared to the existing 2000K. Furthermore, the continued research into the effect of blue light and the potential effects on human circadian rhythm captured my attention.
“After a few amendments, the DW Windsor applications team refined the design to incorporate a twin Sunlike CoB which was quickly approved.”
The Ely B with Performance CoB complements the architectural features of the Grade I listed church, whilst providing the efficiency, controllability and ease of maintenance of LED, for the 24-hour car park.
As Sunlike LED matches the spectral distribution of the sun, further benefits include reduced blue light content for wellbeing and local wildlife habitats, enhanced colour rendering (CRI: 95Ra) to support CCTV and facial recognition, visual comfort and low glare for the surrounding residences.
The scheme achieves an average of 12 lux.
