Case study / Radisson Blu Hotel, Dublin

FAME delivers Bluetooth ambient lighting for chic hotel  

Project requirements

Located close to many of Dublin’s famous landmarks, The Radisson Blu is a chic hotel in the heart of the city.

Requiring a refresh of the public spaces, which included the restaurant, bar, entrance and circulation areas, the project’s lighting brief required there to be a reduction in energy consumption and relamping costs associated with the current lighting scheme, whilst being sympathetic to the budget and the two week delivery schedule.

Project solutions

Chroma Lighting was approached to fulfil the brief as everything from the original fit out was still working, 12 years on. Taking the brief and the budget into consideration, Chroma specified Gamma’s FAME single and twin framelights on the project.  Chosen for their high quality and glare control optics, FAME, with Casambi Bluetooth, provided an excellent solution.

Featuring a Tridonic LED module and driver system, the FAME framelights are highly energy efficient, especially when compared to the LV (QR111) fittings they replaced.  The integration of Casambi Bluetooth avoided any additional wiring, keeping the installation time and costs to a minimum.  It also allowed for greater flexibility when grouping luminaires.

In addition, Gamma’s framelights exactly matched the cut out of the fittings they replaced and the bezel ensured that any imperfections around the opening would be hidden, so further savings could be made.

Project results

A spokesperson for Chroma Lighting commented:  “The client is delighted with the results!  Everyone loves the quality of the light, the glare control provided by the optics and the flexibility that the Casambi Bluetooth system provides.

“It’s a pleasure working with the Gamma Team as we always receive the highest level of service and we know we can rely on Gamma’s excellent turnaround times.  By specifying FAME we knew it would be a truly fit and forget solution, which is important to us as we have a reputation to uphold.

“The added benefit of having Casambi Bluetooth controllability proved invaluable as the layout was constantly changing during the fit out and it allowed us to easily group and re-group the luminaires as required.”
