Specialty Lighting

GNEC provides lighting design for public realm areas to transforms these spaces into an experience versus simple area lighting. The type of projects include large open public spaces, sports fields, building courtyards, architectural landscape features, pond/water courses.

We help our clients accomplish this by incorporating specialty accent lighting fixtures with dimming and DMX controls where appropriate. Together the right combination of fixtures and their careful placement, consideration for mounting and wiring techniques with the appropriate controls has allowed our clients to achieve high quality lighting experience to suit the unique nature of each project.

The key to establishing a successful outcome begins with the following:

  • Establish the goals of the lighting and user experience
  • Define what project budget is available for lighting
  • Identify maintenance practices, construction or operational constraints which influences fixture, wiring methods and control system selection

The specialty services provided includes the following:

  • Preparing recommended fixture selection with different cost options complete with fixture layout and associated 3D rendering of the proposed lighting modelling effects using Dialux and AGI software
  • Prepare DMX control system wiring/control schematic and equipment list
  • Prepare power distribution design to power the lights and control system
  • Prepare communication design (wireless or wired) to accommodate required control system remote operation
  • Develop custom mounting and wire way details for attaching fixtures into complex structures and running concealed wiring.
  • On-site commissioning of control systems and aiming of fixtures
  • Record drawings and maintenance and operations manuals.
