Silver Fin – Aberdeen, UK

Aberdeen is home to a new state of the art office space. The building is aptly named due to the number of vertical aluminum fins cladding all elevations of the tower element of this impressive building. This decorative metalwork combined with the granite frames catches the light making this building instantly recognizable for all to see.
The 132,000 sq. ft. building spreads over nine floors of open plan office space, a dramatic four story reception space, five 17 person passenger lifts, 140 underground car parking spaces and it boasts stunning views across Aberdeen City Center and beyond. (Who wouldn’t want to work there?)

Brief
acdc were chosen to supply the lighting for this impressive £65 million office development. The vision was to set new standards of Grade a office accommodation combined with contemporary architecture. The criteria was extremely stringent for this energy saving building, M&E Consultants Tüv Süd in conjunction with Architects Cooper Cromar were approached to design and specify the lighting, with installation of the lighting carried out by Infrastructure Group Balfour Beatty.

Solution
Behind the new contemporary Scottish granite façade lies an expansive entrance lobby with a four story atrium providing views up to the office tower above. Our very own Orelle Pro was chosen to make the coves glow throughout this stunning reception space. Its continuous lines of light invite and guide visitors into the space, bringing their attention to the height and outline of Aberdeen’s newest business lounge. Orelle Pro (as you can see) brings a new dimension into the entrance of the building giving it its own character and personality. (We know how to make an entrance)

Our slim line linear luminaire delivered 360 lumens per foot with what can only be described as superb 80 or 90 CRI color rendering (you decide) and with 2 step macadam process everyone was confident the lit effect was smooth, beautiful and even across the whole project. There are a choice of outputs – standard bright or extra bright giving you a choice with outstanding light to size ratio. (They may be skinny but they’re strong)

Orelle is one cool dude, its built-in heat sink technology maintains a cool LED junction temperature. (No hot head here!) This low glare luminaire is available with a number of accessories for reducing glare, the flexible connector allows the light to follow shapes and curves (so flexible a gymnast would be jealous).
