The Rockhampton Riverside Precinct has recently undergone a $36 million redevelopment, resulting in creating an award-winning public realm, an interactive urban space for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
Jointly-funded by local Council, State and Federal Governments, our part within this multi-million dollar redevelopment was to provide the architectural and feature lighting for the heritage listed houses in Quay and Denham streets and surroundings.
The ULA Group worked closely with Brisbane based Rixon Design to specify, install, program and commission a new sophisticated architectural lighting system for the precinct.
After conducting several on site tests to ensure the most suitable technology was selected for this project, 21 Griven Powershine LED RGBW flood lights were chosen to provide the best illumination and coverage of the building facades. Featuring 96 powerful RGBW LEDs, the Griven Powershine fixtures deliver an astonishing white light output quality and a wide variety of intermediate colour hues, offering the maximum lighting design flexibility.
All the fixtures are linked together by the sophisticated Pharos Control system with the ability to create dynamic colour schemes and patterns just with few button touches via the live webpage or fixed touch panel.
The local Council has already seen the benefits of the redevelopment of the precinct when it comes to hosting new events for the community, giving them an incredible outdoor space that can be enjoyed all year round. This major redevelopment is also expected to increase tourism within the region.
“Rockhampton started as a port city on the Fitzroy River and the riverfront has now been reimagined, renewed and re-ignited to once again reflect the city’s central hub and a wellspring for our vibrant future ahead,” stated Mayor Margaret Strelow during the official opening of the precinct.
