Lighting scores with Premier League club

As the football season drew to a close it was time for Old Trafford to commence its renovation projects including the hospitality areas in the West Stand and South East Quadrant.

All of this needed to be completed before the club’s testimonial, which was no mean feat considering that the match was only a couple of months away.

Alard Electrical Ltd, the electrical contractors for the renovation project, had previously worked with Gamma on other projects and was happy to recommend the company as a reliable partner for the lighting requirements.

The renovation of the hospitality area in the West and South East Stand Quadrants was a prestigious project and the selected LED fittings had to help create a luxurious ambience that reflected the high-end surroundings, yet didn’t detract from the other creative and decorative lighting features.

With this in mind, the TTX 700 lumen, 3000K with 60° beam and centre etched glass was chosen for the ambient lighting in the corridor areas. In addition to the TTX fittings, Syncro M, S1 and S2 LED lights were selected for the adjustable display lighting to highlight the various pictures that adorn the corridor walls as well as above the doorways leading off the corridors. Each of these fittings offered 580 lumen output, 4000K and a selection of 54° and 24° beam angles with a brushed aluminium finish.

For the toilets and hospitality bar area, the Buddy M fitting was selected as a low energy alternative to the 50W halogen GU10. The Buddy M provided a cost-effective adjustable and lockable gimbal, 40° beam angle and a warm colour temperature of 2700K.

It was at this point that Hannon Associates, Building Services Consultants for the project, were asked to review the fittings supplied by Gamma. After analysis and a range of tests, the fittings were approved for the job.

As well as creating the desired ambience, the LED luminaires will save a substantial amount of time and money over their long life when compared to other light sources. An example of this is the Buddy M which consumes only 7W giving a saving of up to 85% when compared to a 50W halogen GU10.

Further savings will be made from the 50,000 hours lifespan offered by the TTX luminaires, during which time there will be low maintenance costs and minimal disruption no-relamping requirements.

To the delight of Manchester United, the renovation project was completed on time and without any problems or issues, which meant that the hospitality area was open for business at the start of the testimonial matches.
