Illuminating Lighting at the John Foster Building
The John Foster Building at Liverpool John Moores University has recently undergone a lighting refurbishment, Luceco supplying the luminaires for the project. The John Foster Building was a former nunnery, the facilities providing a beautiful setting for teaching including humanities and social science departments, IT suites, and dedicated postgraduate study areas.
A range of luminaires installed by I.E.D. Installations, electrical and data contractors based in Liverpool, included linear Academy, recessed LuxPanel Extra and Platinum Mini downlighters along with Luceco’s wireless lighting control system.
Academy is a surface linear range of luminaires, designed with educational establishments in mind, available in 1200, 1500 and 1800mm lengths with a choice of high or low outputs with an efficacy up to 129 Llm/cW. With microprism polycarbonate opal diffuser, Academy is a robust fitting with clean aesthetics. Polycarbonate-secured endcaps ensure a quality lighting solution, enhanced by uniform light distribution. Academy can be suspension or surface mounted with a BESA fixing and central cable entry.
The University is named in honour of Sir John Moores, who founded the Littlewoods retail chain and the football pools! In 1987 the Polytechnic recognised Sir John’s outstanding contribution to the area by making him its first Honorary Fellow. This year see the celebration of 200 years of education at the Liverpool John Moores whose history goes back to the late industrial revolution. Today the modern civic university demonstrates that they haven’t lost the pioneering zeal of their founding fathers but now enjoying a well-lit environment that is hugely beneficial to learning in educational establishments.
