ALeds have recently supplied a further set of the innovative Arum solar luminaires to Phase 2b of the redevelopment project at Brewery Square.
Brewery Square is housed within the site of the former Eldridge Pope Brewery in Dorchester. The regeneration sought to maintain the unique architecture and character of the area whilst offering a modern retail, leisure and residential facility, embracing sustainable and environmentally-friendly technology. Set for completion in 2016, Phase 2b of the project includes the conversion of the 130 year old brewery into a hotel and spa and residential space.
The Arum is a bespoke design for the project and the outcome of a collaboration between Advanced LEDs and Studio Conran. The aim was to embrace the modernity of the new facilities at Brewery Square whilst remaining loyal to the nature of the existing 19th century architecture. As a 45w, 4000 lumen unique solar and mains feed amenity light, the Arum is capable of generating 20-80% of its total annual power usage. It is designed to maximise energy savings, featuring a solar charge controller, proximity sensors and independent dimming. The proximity sensors ensure the light only operates at full power when completely necessary, by lowering light levels when there is a lull in pedestrian traffic. You can see a video of the Arum in action at Brewery Square here.
If you have a solar project you think we may be able to assist with, please do get in touch. Our road lantern, the Clara™, is offered in a solar variant which provides EN road compliant lighting throughout the year.
