Located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, and originally established 1885, Abbotsleigh is an independent boarding school which provides a quality and well-balanced education. Focused on empowering their students to be courageous, constructive and compassionate, the school has been working behind the scenes on an upgrade to their concert and assembly hall lighting systems. Led by the systems integration team at Barbizon Australia, the renovation project most recently undertook the upgrading of the house lighting systems in the concert hall using Chalice LED 150W downlights from Altman Lighting.
“We first came to this project while conducting a review of all the lighting fixtures and systems for the various venues within the school, and then preparing a schedule for renovations over a 2 to 3-year period,” began Paul Lewis, Systems Sales Director for Barbizon Australia. “The overall scope involved upgrading the fixtures to LED and updating the associated control systems as well. Stage one was previously comprised of installing Altman PHX 250W LED profiles in a few difficult to service front-of-house positions, along with Spectra Cyc 100 LED fixtures installed in the main assembly hall and the concert hall. Stage two was now being able to replace the existing house and work lighting fixtures in the concert hall with the new Chalice LED.”
Now complete, the new house lighting system inside the concert hall at
Abbotsleigh is providing both the performance capabilities and the
design aesthetics desired. Highlighted by its ability to work with both
mains dimming and DMX protocols, Lewis is confident they found the ideal
lighting solution with the Chalice LED series from Altman Lighting.
