We The Curious, Bristol

We The Curious is a science and arts centre and educational charity in Bristol, England, which wanted to replace the expensive legacy lighting with a more energy efficient and flexible LED setup.

  • Enlightened was approached by the technical team at Bristol’s We the Curious attraction to put forward a proposal and efficiency study for replacement of their current theatrical and architectural traditional lamp fixtures with LED fixtures, highlighting the efficiency savings and reduction in energy footprint
  • Older in situ dimmers were replaced with grid switches and sockets which allow more versatile movable dimmers to be used – grid switches also allow for future versatility and addition to the lighting infrastructure
  • Movable dimmers were replaced with two Zero88 Alpha Pack
  • Enlightened specified and installed eight ETC ColorSource PAR in the Deep Blue variant
  • Lighting control is via a customisable Pharos TPC with two main benefits:
    • Intuitively simple to use affording straightforward, effortless control over a multitude of programmed lighting states and effects, allowing the user to easily trigger scenes and visuals and manually override these as desired
    • Allows IT department to monitor and maintain the system with educational staff being able to trigger and override scenes where necessary
