GPAC uses LEDs as part of sustainable new venue
Aug 7, 2010 The Ford Theatre at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC)recently underwent an extensive makeover thanks to a $3 million grant from Arts Victoria.
Electrolight - a Lighting Design Consultancy - was contracted by Arts Victoria for the architectural lighting design of the auditorium, designer - Mark Trubridge. Mark and Joe Casamento of Lightmoves chose Australian-made Digilin Icon LED downlights for the theater lighting.
Lightmoves also supplied Tridonic Talexx Engine line LED bars that were used to highlight the featured wood panelling, as well as Tridonic LED strips that were used as step lighting. All LED fixtures in the auditorium are controlled by a combination of Dynalite and Tech Art LED controllers in an accessible location. No drivers were placed in the ceiling due to access issues; so all drivers are remote in the unlikely event of that maintenance or repairs are required.
The theatre staff, architects and Arts Victoria are all very happy with the result. “We think it is the first auditorium of that size in Australia to be fully house light with LEDs, and I’m very pleased that it has worked so well.” Mark Trubridge
