The Castle School, Taunton

ITAB Lighting UK provides LED solution for challenging dining room ceiling at Castle School.

In conjunction with Houghton Greenlees Associates, ITAB Lighting were asked to design and supply a discrete, cost effective and efficient LED lighting solution for the new dining facility at The Castle School, Taunton.

The brief was to provide an even illuminance at the working plane with an unobtrusive, ceiling integrated luminaire. This was particularly challenging with the different ceiling types, heights and pitches employed.

The solution was to utilise our Niche range of luminaires which can be supplied with 4 different distributions. Asymmetric lenses were used in the pitched ceiling to direct the light downwards and wide distribution lenses were installed in the lower ceiling areas to ensure the uniformity parameters were met. Fittings were supplied with DALI drivers to enable the client to adjust the light levels as required. The result is a stunning, bright and relaxing space.

The Castle School is a co-educational secondary school in Taunton, Somerset and has recently been granted a second specialism in Vocational Education. The main Contractor was CG Fry & Son and Electrical Contractor Stafford & Coomber.
