TRILUX low-energy LED luminaires meet Cambridge's largest Passivhaus student residential building requirements

Cambridge University’s Lucy Cavendish College accommodation scheme, designed by RH Partnership Architects, is developed to the Passivhaus standard to significantly reduce energy use, and ensure comfort for students and carers, using modern methods of construction and sustainable, robust materials to reduce embodied carbon.

LEDs' low energy and heat qualities were a natural choice. For a high-quality LED solution, electrical contractors Munro Building Services turned to its trusted lighting partner -TRILUX.

The bedrooms are comfortable and welcoming, enabling students to get to know each other. Here the wall mounted TRILUX LC60 aids with its 3000K warm, welcoming light, which is easily dimmable and creates a cosy, inviting atmosphere for students to retire to after a long day.

From the corridors and stairwells to the plant rooms and external stores, the TRILUX range has been utilised to provide optimum efficiency. The lighting design comprises SNC Point, LC60, 74RS, Amatris, Limba, LED Tape and the Skeo range.

Grant Rigg, Electrical Project Manager, Munro comments, "Trilux have been incredibly proactive from the early design stage, liaising directly with the client's team through to project delivery. Working with them on the scheme has been a pleasure, and they are always happy to help."
