Designplan’s Australian sister company, Eagle Lighting, were appointed by NDYLIGHT (Norman Disney and Young) to provide lighting for the transport interchange as part of the Monash University Learning and Teaching Building.
The new transport interchange delivers a world-class sustainable public transport hub with improved integration of bus, cyclist and pedestrian services. Our lighting installation in the interchange creates a vibrant new front door to the campus from Wellington Road.
Monash’s commitment to sustainability was an integralpart of the specification. As a manufacturer of long lasting luminaires, our commitment to the environment is evident in both design and construction.
Although not a high vandal area, the robust Flair with an IK16 rating, resisting up to 150 Joules. This ensured peace of mind and longevity. The IP65 rating was essential due to the exhaust fumes of the buses using the interchange and the requirement to meet the Australian Standards AS1158.3.1 Category 6.
An important component of the Flair LED was the louvre which reduced glare and created a good uniformity of light and enhanced wayfinding. Heat and durability were major considerations. The Flair was tested to function efficiently in 40°C temperatures. This feature, combined with the protective skin of oven-baked finish and backed up by the 5 year warranty, guaranteed its suitability for the installation.
