A.C. Lighting Special Projects at The Watermans

24th May 2002

During a total refurbishment of The Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford, Technical Director Andy Mahaffey selected the Special Projects division of A.C. Lighting Ltd, to install the architectural lighting and audio solutions.

Having worked with Andy on previous projects, the service and attention to detail shown by A.C. Lighting's Special Projects staff so impressed him, he made A.C. his first choice for this contract.

The first stage of the project involved architectural lighting, comprising clusters of three 500W Fresnels, each fitted with an amber filter, these were used to give a soft glow of light to the stage and bar area. The second stage covered the event and effects lighting system, this employs custom internally wired bars, all with switched and dimmed outlets as well as DMX connections. A Jands Event 24/120 console was also supplied, which provides control over all functions of the system.

Audio requirements were the final stage of the installation, with a brief to provide infra-red hard of hearing systems in both the theatre and cinema complexes. With in-depth knowledge gained from similar projects, Peter Keiderling, Special Projects Manager at A.C. Lighting, specified Sennheiser SZI 1015-T transmitters, and R150 receiver earphones.

Andy Mahaffey commented "A.C. Lighting's Special Projects division have once again provided excellent service during the course of this installation. Work was carried out on time, with a very professional approach and within budget".
