BRIO Leisure Centre
Cheshire West & Chester Council
Working alongside CWAC and BRIO, our LED lighting turned a dingy looking sports hall into a more inviting space. BRIO wanted to offer this sports hall for sports hire in an evening but, due to its uninviting lighting, were finding there wasn’t much interest.
Cube created a lighting design based around sport England standards – the lux levels required for some sports is extremely high. Tweaking the design and layout, we managed to achieve these standards for badminton and cricket. We fitted frosted bespoke diffusers onto the fittings so that there was no glare when looking up to the lights whilst playing sports like badminton.
After fitting, the results were outstanding and soon after bookings for the space skyrocketed. Not only is the centre saving a huge amount of money from LED lighting usage they now make more money by hiring the space out. Win-win.
From this, we continued to work with CWAC to change our local schools and community centres over to LED lighting allowing huge savings across the borough.
