BC Legislature Retrofit

Victoria, BC

The British Columbia Parliament Buildings are the home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia and seat of the provincial government.

The previous lighting system dates to the 1970’s and consisted of halogen and fluorescent fixtures. The upgraded LED system respects the heritage aspect of the building where fixture positions could not be altered. The  product selection and performance specifications were critical to maximizing the functionality and aesthetics of the space. False skylights backed by the unilluminated attic space required significant care to create uniform lighting that mimicked natural daylight using the automated colour-tuning system. Dome light fixtures were connected to a colour and intensity sampling sensor placed on the building’s exterior to automatically adjust the fixtures’ colour temperature to match the exterior light’s colour temperature. Lighting controls that once had to be manually adjusted now have the capability to automatically turn on, dim, turn off, or white tune, which saves energy, time, and resources. The control system’s multiple zones highlight architectural features and allow maximum flexibility.
