Fabrica is a visual arts organisation based in a former Regency church in the heart of Brighton that commissions contemporary visual art installations specific to the building.
Following the end of their summer exhibition season, the gallery closed for major building refurbishment in September 2015. In an effort to lower the carbon footprint of the premises as well as reducing their electricity bills, Fabrica commisioned BHESCo to replace the old inefficient lighting system with energy saving LED lightbulbs.
To deliver this project BHESCo partnered with Sustainables4u, a renewable-energy specialist based in Henfield, West Sussex. Following a detailed survey of the exhibition space at Fabrica, we designed a cutting edge lighting installation that was custom built for the existing lighting track on the Fabrica ceiling.
The light settings are fully customisable and highly flexible, allowing a unique brightness and ‘temperature’ to be tailored to to the requirements of individual exhibitions.
We expect that the installation will save Fabrica nearly £2,000 on annual energy bills, in addition to an estimated 2.7 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
