Lighting : April 2010 Whos Who of Lighting
32 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | April/May 2010 2009 IESANZ INtErNAtIoNAl lIghtINg AwArdS IES A WARDS designer: gareth Mabin, becA consultants, christchurch Judges’ coMMents: The new NZi3 National ICT Innovation Institute at the University of Canterbury has been developed to foster collaboration and innovation across New Zealand and operate as an interface between academia and industry. Located in a high profile position on the north-west perimeter of the University’s campus, it was the first educational building awarded a 5-star New Zealand Excellence rating under the NZGBC Green Star scheme. This is a prestige low-rise building that was intended to be as innovative as the research being carried out by the building’s occupants. This is a fascinating building for anyone interested in achieving good environmental conditions inside by use of good design of the building fabric rather than the more common approach of ignoring the environment and achieving results by brute force using air conditioning and electric lighting. The building is long and relatively narrow with generous slab-to-slab heights compared with most modern buildings. All the walls are glazed but shaded in various ways and daylight penetration is very good and without the gloom associated with some buildings that dim the electric lighting in response to the available daylight. The project had the benefit of a generous budget, a committed and involved client and excellent coordination between the various design professions. The result is outstanding. suPPLIeRs: Trilux, Thorn, Targetti, BPS, Fagerhult, IBL, OMS, LeGrand Designed and Manufactured in New Zealand PURE SUSTAINABILITY This Euro Twin Wall Spot is one of many HUNZA luminaires that offer the latest LED options to provide the ultimate in energy efficiency, safety and longevity.
