Sylvania Sylproof Superia LED proves to be the perfect choice for Blackpool Victoria Hospital
The factors for selecting the right lighting for a car park environment include ensuring the right light levels for safety, correct fixture placement and overall energy consumption. When Blackpool Victoria Hospital was looking to build a new car park, the Sylvania Sylproof Superia LED proved to be the ideal luminaire to meet all these criteria for the lighting scheme.
The new car park was part of a larger £16.4 million development that improved access to the hospital and provided a new entrance facility. Incorporating a pharmacy, retail units, café, main reception, waiting area and offices, the entrance space is the main access point for patients, visitors and staff. A redesign of the internal road layout was necessary to create the multi-storey car park, which has 1120 spaces with staff spaces on the upper floors. With 80,000 attendances every year, the car park would be in constant use and required an efficient lighting scheme that did not need regular maintenance to keep it in working order. The original plans incorporated fluorescent lamps but during the construction phase it was agreed to change and to LED. The lighting was installed by Imtech Smith, one of the leading technical service providers in the UK and Ireland.
