Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, Calgary, Canada | STR9® RGB

One of Canada’s leading polytechnics, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, Trade and Technology Complex, (SAIT TTC) recently underwent a $400 million renovation and expansion. SAIT Polytechnic opened its doors in September 2012 to the new Trades and Technology Complex, featuring a multi-story coloured wall featuring GVA Lighting’s STR9® RGBs LED luminaires. A second educational campus building features two similar multi coloured walls with GVA’s LED technology. Under the guidance light designer Ion Luh of Crossey Engineering, the interior of the buildings were made over with perforated metal wall coverings backed by hundreds of GVA Lighting’s LED lights. The light installations featured 192 STR9® RGBs behind the sheathing to create a remarkable and soft coloured glow to engage students creativity. The STR9® RGBs were programmed using Pharos controls to display a lively myriad of colours during both day and night.
