Our Paseo luminaire is helping to revitalise Stratford High Street and will also ensure that the large number of people visiting the 2012 Olympics can travel safely through the area at night.
The client master plan for the scheme required the new lighting to blend in with the modern buildings and re-landscaping work programmed in the area. Stratford High Street needed to meet a ME2 lighting class, so our design team put forward the most cost effective solution. This involved using our Paseo luminaires with a twin optic, utilising 140W CPO-TW lamps, mounted at 10m.
The client also required the scheme to align with the 2012 Olympic goals around sustainability, so the scheme needed to be as energy efficient as possible. Our solution reduced the number of lamps in operation by 20% along Stratford High Street and also gives the London Borough of Newham the option of switching off one of the lamps in the twin optic in the future. This will yield further savings.
The 13m columns blend in well with the new modern developments, can cater for banners and traffic signals and also have a LED finial at their tip. The new lighting has been well received since it went up 6 months ago and also promises to be a low maintenance solution for the Borough.
In total we supplied over 100 Paseos, mainly equipped with 140W CPO-TW lamps. However, on the roads adjoining Stratford High Street, we varied the lamp type and mounting heights in order to provide the optimum solution.
This scheme was possible thanks to a grant from the Thames Gateway London Partnership and support from Design for London.
