Owned by Hermes Real Estate Investment Management Ltd., and located in Wimbledon’s town centre, Wimbledon Bridge House is being thoroughly refurbished to include a full height glass atrium, full access raised floors, air conditioning, suspended ceilings, four glass wall climber lifts around the atrium and two further enclosed lifts. Lighting Controls Ltd. has been appointed to design, supply and commission the Cat A1 lighting control system for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors (approximately 70,000 sq. ft.) of this prestigious office building. The system comprises DALI Lighting Control Modules and luminaires, CAN PIR motion detectors controlling the daylight linking, and TCP/IP area controllers to provide total flexibility (i.e., the addition of head-end control software) for Close Brothers, the incoming tenant. Merchant banking group, Close Brothers, is moving 600 staff from its offices in Tolworth Tower into Wimbledon Bridge House, making it the biggest private employer in the borough. They have also specified Lighting Controls Ltd. as the Cat B2 control system designer and supplier for their lighting and some ancillaries. As well as additional PIRs and Lighting Control Modules, the control system incorporates RS232 control for AV systems, and also heating and air conditioning control in some of the meeting rooms via scene plates. The system also uses multisensors for presence and absence detection. The graphic representation incorporated into the head-end software facilitates easy programming and reconfiguration of the whole control system.
