CP Electronics Rapid control system with scene setting has been used to great effect at a new multi-million pound sports centre at Truro School in Cornwall. Specified by E3 Consulting Engineers of Bath, Rapid was chosen as the system offers easy installation with simple control via standard light switches, handsets or from a central computerised source. The planning process started with E3’s Consultant Michael Freke, who downloaded the CP App, an online specification creator that enables users to browse energy-saving control ‘apps’ and download specifications to suit their particular project.
The system facilitates compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations and the ability to score the maximum number of BREEAM points available for each design. Within each project type a number of typical lighting control specifications are described, so that users can select the one that best suits the area they are working on.
