St Augustine’s Church, Gloucester

Total Lighting & Controls won the contract to replace the existing lighting in The Nave and Sanctuary in St Augustine’s Church, Gloucester.

The Soledo 22 Watt LED downlight was proposed to replace the fluorescent downlights in The Nave. The ceiling height of nearly 8 metres provided a challenging installation by motorised access equipment from below and from above in the loft. Light levels were calculated by design to achieve an average illuminance of 244 lux. Two LED low bay luminaires were also installed to provide additional light above the Sanctuary.

The Azuma Midi 13 Watt LED spotlight replaced the existing halogen spotlights in the Sanctuary and LED battens replaced the fluorescents which illuminate Jesus Christ.

A life expectancy of 50,000 hours and a 5 year warranty on both the Soledo and Azuma provides a maintenance free solution, and a piece of mind to the customer. The additional benefits of low energy luminaires reducing electricity bills and improved light levels were the driving factors to Total Lighting & Controls winning the contract.
