Places for People- Dengie Hundred Sports Centre

Advanced LEDs have installed a Sport England compliant sports hall design at Dengie Hundred Sports Centre in Essex. The new scheme has revitalised the leisure space by giving the hall, which was converted into a sports hall from a WWII aircraft hangar, a much needed facelift.

We have utilised a point for point installation along the existing catenary structure which required complex design work to accurately simulate the unique curved nature of the roof, as well as allowing for the low reflectance values of surfaces. We delivered a new Sport England compliant scheme which has been verified on-site to achieve 300 lux, increasing lighting levels significantly by 275%.

We replaced the incumbent 98W linear fluorescent fittings with our 100W Clara Bay fittings supplied with specialist glare reducing sports lenses. The design surpasses Sport England levels of illuminance by achieving 330 lux Eav. The scheme has drastically boosted light levels as well as ensuring energy savings of 60%, a cost saving of over £3,000 annually. From a financial standpoint, the installation achieves an ROI of 461% and a payback period of 2.17 years.

We have included images of our lighting designs, images of the previous lighting scheme and of the completed installation for comparison.
