Fully flexible control of lighting

An advanced Delmatic DALI system provides fully flexible control of lighting throughout the office floors as well as within shell and core areas coupled with comprehensive management and monitoring of building emergency lighting. Delmatic’s DALI plug-in modules achieve total flexibility without the need for any on-site addressing while DALI Broadcast modules control lighting in core areas including carpark.

Energy efficiency is assured

Presence detection, absence detection and daylight linking / harvesting optimise energy efficiency while the complete system is managed and monitored through graphical network software.

Scene-setting controls within reception and public areas combine fully configurable scene selection with DALI RGB colour control and mood management.

Dynamic from any angle

Forbury Place provides a dynamic impression from every angle. Ribbon-like vertical fins provide solar shading while their twisting appearance creates the illusion of movement for those walking past: the design also incorporates a powerful ‘diagrid’ to providing unique visual branding.
