New Lighting by Crompton Redefines the Iconic Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, Head Quarters (BMC HQ)
Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) headquarters building looks even more splendid now after being lit up with LED lights as it enters its 125th year.
The spectacular lighting of this iconic building has been carried out by Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd. (Crompton) using dynamic LED facade luminaires, thus highlighting the intricate details of this gothic architectural marvel.
The Crompton LED Dynamic Facade lighting luminaires helped create an exciting interplay between shadow & light to create a spectacular effect. The LED floodlights are fully integrated into the sections of the outer façade of the structure and are therefore invisible to the onlooker. Also the floodlights and facade grazing luminaires have been painted to match the architecture of the building.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Mathew Job, CEO of Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd. said, “We are very proud of having been selected to illuminate this iconic building. Crompton’s deep expertise in lighting design that has been built over the years helps us light up these landmark buildings in a way that further enhances their splendour. We, at Crompton constantly work towards innovation and technology and are very satisfied with the effects that we have been able to achieve in this project.”
The new lights are energy efficient and environment friendly and will creatively illuminate the unique features of the BMC HQ. Crompton RGBW (Red Green Blue and White) Luminaires provide a larger colour palette, scene selection through programmable scene controller and can be remotely controlled through connectivity on an app. They also have an additional feature of energy monitoring to maximise the energy saving that is derived from LED technology. Brighter and whiter lighting will also increase visitors’ flow and generate a “feel good” factor among the tourists and city dwellers who are drawn to this monument.
Crompton Luminaires that is being used to light up the BMC Headquarter has previously been installed at various heritage properties across the India, e.g. At Varanasi – ManMahal, Chukhandi Stupa Dhamekh Stupa and many more projects are in pipeline. Crompton will maintain the lighting system for 5 years from the date of installation post which it will be handed over to BMC for future maintenance.
