The Royal Welsh College Upgrade Their House Lighting System.

Stage Electrics have returned to the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama to install its house lighting systems, to significantly improve energy reduction.

Having previously integrated technical infrastructure and production lighting for their venues, back in 2013, Stage Electrics have returned to fit over 90 new house lights within the Richard Burton Theatre and the spacious foyer area.
The Royal Welsh College wished to upgrade their pre-existing light fittings; their new house lighting system consists of GDS’s range of modular LED lighting, the ArcSystem. Whilst offering highly efficient LED’s, low glare optics and energy reduction, the ArcSystem also came with very low maintenance requirements.

“GDS’s ArcSystem is the fitting choice for the Royal Welsh College for several reasons” explained Martin Woodage, of Stage Electrics “The huge potential in energy reduction was of course a strong selling point, however, due to some of the venues 13m high ceilings, it was important that whatever fixtures were chosen required minimal maintenance.

“These new houselights are highly efficient and won’t need to be changed for years. We were also able to integrate both the theatre and the foyer’s new house lights into their existing ETC Unison Paradigm system – this was advantageous for the client as one system would control all the lighting”.

Between supplying the quotation and the project completion, only 9 weeks had passed. “This project had a tight turnaround time due to bookings within the spaces” added Martin “We had 6 days to install all the GDS fittings, drivers and DMX control cabling with onsite commissioning taking place a day ahead of schedule”.
