Medical University Bahrain- Lighting Design
Client: College of Surgeons
Architects: Mercury Engineering
Brief: Following detailed discussions with the client, MSCEB of Bahrain, Wink consultants prepared a lighting strategy for each of the 1,000 plus rooms on the site. Since it was not feasible to prepare lighting designs for each individual room, we prepared generic designs for a range of room types. We then developed a powerful software package to identify, for each individual room, every light fitting, lamp and control gear; its location, power consumption and supplier; its expected life and cost. The client will be able to continue to operate the package as an invaluable maintenance and purchasing tool throughout the life of the project. A Lighting design was prepared for every major space, including a number of major lighting features. Once we had completed detailed design down to individual luminaire level, Wink identified a short-list of suppliers for each light fitting and lamp, including alternative fittings. The campus accepted its first students in September 2007.
