The Calyx - A Jewel in the Garden1 Dec,16
The Calyx - A Jewel in the Garden
The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney now has a new world-class attraction, named the Calyx. Which opened in June 2016 to mark the 200 year birthday of the Royal Botanic Gardens.
The venue was built around the site of the Arc Glasshouse, in the south western corner of the gardens.
The Calyx which was designed by PTW is an integrated mix of indoor and outdoor areas, this facility has been designed as an extension of the arc. Allowing the display and multipurpose spaces to open up as one space or remain as individual spaces.
Jadecross worked alongside JHA & Colbros the electrical contractor to provide a bespoke exterior lighting solution.
The Megabay Osirion RGBW was chosen to accent the columns and meet the technical challenges of the site. Seventy four recessed in-ground up-lights complete with remote individual DMX controls, some of which are up to 60 meters away from the fixtures bring colour to the space.
Ligman Tango & Martini fixtures were used to compliment the exterior of the project using the latest in LED street optics.12 Oct,16
T1 Departures Sydney International Airport12 Oct,16
T1 Departures Sydney International Airport
Heinemann which is the 5th largest duty free operator in the world won the 7 & ½ year contract for Sydney’s T1 departure’s. As part of the tender there was to be a full upgrade of all facilities surrounding the duty free area which included the security check in.
Part of this was lighting the main thorough fare of the departures gates. The challenge for the lighting designers (Aurecon) was to provide a highly functional space for security but also to maintain an upmarket ambience to entice shoppers to spend more time in the area. The architect had provided black troughs in the ceiling to hide the light sources away for a glare-free environment which was achieved by using the superior ERCO lens technology so there was no spill light on the edges of the troughs and great optical cut-off.
Seeing the airport is functioning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week the chosen luminaires had to have a high quality technical specification. The selected ERCO 28w Skim achieves an excellent maintenance factor of L90/B10 at 50,000 hours, a failure rate of less than 0.1% at 50,000 hours and a colour deviation of <2SDCM.

Retail Therapy23 Aug,16
Jadecross along with ERCO have been working with clients recently to produce boutique retail stores with quality lighting. Something not very common when you walk into your local shopping centre.
One of the latest finished projects has been the flagship store for COS. This is the 140th store opened internationally for the Swedish fashion brand which chose the former bank head-quarters of CBA in 5 Martin Place.
A lot of retail stores try to compete with stores surrounding them with simply adding more lights. Where the COS project sets itself apart from competitors is by placing light where you need it - on the products! Not by flooding every square meter with light so there is no contrast and your eyes aren't drawn to what you are trying to exhibit. When accenting products it's very important to create visual comfort and with ERCO's lens technology this installation is a calm, glare free space inviting customers to spend more time than usual in store. There was a mixture of optics used including flood, spot and oval flood to make sure spill light doesn't occur.
These principles can be used in a huge range project's that you could be working on right now including retail, car showrooms, lobbies etc.
If you would like to discuss further please call the Jadecross team to discuss further.

Not your ordinary carpark…22 Jun,16
Not your ordinary carpark…
After almost two years in construction the new Woolworths at Crows Nest has been finished. As a joint venture with North Sydney Council part of the development was a public carpark sitting above the 3800sqm superstore. Jadecross and the Megabay Viento were chosen to light up the huge multi-coloured façade. The design had it’s challenges with so many different colours, depths, width’s and height’s over a large area but the pictures are proof that this Australian made, award winning LED Linear luminaire was right for the job.30 May,16

Liverpool Catholic Club Car Park Design14 Oct,15
Liverpool Catholic Club Car Park Design
Jadecross was pleased to be a part of the Haron Robson designed Liverpool Catholic Club carpark which was recognised by the IES NSW Chapter for an award of commendation. For this project the Megabay Viento XT RGBW Linear Projector was chosen to highlight the façade of the carpark with the judges commenting “Innovative solution to an otherwise bland concrete above ground carpark, a solution not just based on a complying to standards but and artistic touch”.
The Ligman Austin was also supplied with a custom pole on the perimeter of the roof top to eliminate any spill of light onto the main feature which was the illuminated mesh façade.
