The Halton District Catholic School Board is continually updating existing schools to meet the energy needs and requirements of today. The School Board has two main goals for their retrofit program: modernize the lighting and electrical systems to improve lighting in schools and to realize large energy savings through reduced operating costs. Both goals were achieved here in a collaborative effort between Lightstudio (Burlington, ON), NRG Consultants (Ancaster, ON) and Medgar LCi.
In the main office and corridor areas Fluxwerx’s Transom delivers an optimal balance of modern design, technical performance, and minimal energy consumption to integrate quality illumination with contemporary architecture. Complimenting the Trasom in the main classroom areas are the Fluxwerx suspended View fixtures offering unparalleled design and a made-in-Canada lighting solution.
The lighting design was finished with colour-changing fixtures and creatively-shaped luminaires. Recessed Lumenpulse Lumenline fixtures featuring RGB lighting controls highlight the first and second floor foyer, while Barbican’s Silhouette fixture adds a fun and dynamic focal piece to the school’s library.
