ZUMTOBEL AND THORN PROVIDE ‘A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL’ FOR ST. PATRICK’S SPECIAL SCHOOL... STPATRICK’SSPECIALSCHOOL, COWEXFORD
W orking on a brief to deliver a first-class facility for students and teachers at St. Patrick’s Special School in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, Zumtobel Group (ZG Lighting Ireland) brands Zumtobel and Thorn have supplied a number of luminaires throughout the €14million project. In conjunction with building engineers
Semple and McKillop Ltd, the project involved the supply of custom-made linear SLOTLIGHT infinity light lines that had to be the exact size of the radiant panels and be able to incorporate third party lighting control sensors. The lighting installation was carried out by electrical contractor, Ronan Burke Electrical Ltd. Designed for students with special educational needs, the 5,940m 2 building - mainly single-storey and part three- storey - consists of 20 classrooms with ensuite toilets, junior and senior dining areas, a general-purpose hall, specialist teaching rooms, and clinician facilities. The school provides a much needed, high quality facility for 400 students from Enniscorthy and the surrounding areas. In addition, the building incorporates a hydrotherapy pool with an extensive range of support facilities on site,
including a fully equipped speech and language suite, horticulture room, ICT suite, home economics room, and physio services. To achieve the required light levels and customised client requirements, Zumtobel’s SLOTLIGHT infinity has been installed extensively throughout the facility – custom versions for the main classrooms, corridors, and the GP Hall. The SLOTLIGHT infinity modular light line offers practically unlimited options, with freedom and flexibility of design, not just in straight lines but even around corners. The unmatched, consistent light quality with virtually end-to-end illumination is available in runs of up to 20m in length without any joins to fulfil every lighting requirement. An unusual and eye- catching, customised SLOTLIGHT infinity ‘ring’ was created primarily to illuminate the main foyer.
