Hanwood Sports Centre

The Hanwood Sports Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, is a sports and fitness club that forms an integral part of the local community. With a full suite of sporting facilities that include a 3G sports pitch and a fitness suite.

The challenge

With a growing list of members and sporting events taking place the pressure was on for Hanwood to future proof their sporting facilities whilst finding a way reduce costs. The challenge for them was that the centre’s floodlighting masts were extremely old, the power supply was limited, and the existing electrical infrastructure was not fit-for-purpose any longer. We worked with our local partner to deliver a new, world-class lighting solution tailored specifically to the requirements of Hanwood.

Our solution

This was a challenging retrofit project that involved keeping the mast infrastructure in place and just re-heading the existing masts with new floodlights. We replaced the original Metal Halide solution with 16 Modus R1200 floodlights spread across the 6 masts. The solution was a perfect balance, not only because we managed to hit the light levels required but we did so with a solution that was lightweight enough to sit on the existing masts. The club now has a first-class future proof lighting solution as well as reducing maintenance and energy consumption costs.
