385 Bourke St, Melbourne, VIC
The Multifive Basic Beta was able to meet the Greenstar requirements of this 7 floor office fit out. In addition our Engineering and Production teams worked to ensure the return air slots on the fitting matched with the air boots on site prior to manufacture.
385 Bourke Street, Melbourne consists of a 41 floor office tower and the twin-level retail complex known as Galleria. The Galleria is showcased underneath a high glass ceiling, bringing natural light to the main shopping mall, which has a range of food, service and specialty shops.
The client requested a Greenstar lighting design for the seven floors they were about to occupy with specifications on Lighting Power Density (ENE-3) and Electric Lighting Levels (IEQ-7). The design aimed to achieve less than 2.0W/m²/100 lux for ENE-3, and for IEQ-7, with no more than 5% of calculation points above 400 lux. As part of the design, it was integral that all AS1680 recommendations on glare were adhered to.
Meeting all the requirements of this project, was the Fagerhult 3x14W Multifive Basic Beta with return air. Why this fitting? Simply, this particular variant of the Multifive luminaire features excellent reflection characteristics courtesy of the Beta R5 louvre with double-parabolic reflector, complemented by the top reflector to maximise light output. In the formative stages of the project our Engineering and Production teams worked to ensure the return air slots on the fitting matched with the air boots on site prior to manufacture.
On completion, the approved design delivered the Greenstar rating requested, gaining two points for meeting the low energy use figure, and an additional point for having no more than 5% of the calculation points exceeded 400lux.
With the industry focused on squeezing the greatest amount of energy possible out of a space while reducing the footprint, it proves that a luminaire like the Multifive Basic Beta can evolve and deliver as these changes come about, without having to sacrifice on the visual comfort and experience of the occupant.
