Case Studies

Bath Road Methodist Church

The challenge

Bath Road Methodist Church is a multifunctional church with regular services and specialist functions such as events & presentations. They needed a reliable, tasteful and low energy house and performance lighting system to meet the demands of a modern multi-functional Church which was both ‘future proof’ and economical solution

Noel Hunt of Bath Road Methodist Church presented the Torpedo Factory Group (TFG) with the challenge and said:

 “The combination of inaccessible halogen floodlights, sodium panels, and fluorescent strip lights were becoming increasingly expensive to maintain and run. Limiting the impact on the aesthetics of the building was also an issue to be considered”.

The solution

To address the requirements for day to day use of the space, TFG worked very closely with lighting manufacturer Innovation LED to create a bespoke lighting panel that would fit straight into the available space without the need for any packing or rebuilding of the ceiling grid. The Panels offered high LUX output, with simple DMX control over colour temperatures and intensities, allowing subtle changes to the ‘feel’ of the church when in use and offering warm looks for the winter and daylight effects for the summer.

To address the requirement for illumination of the Dias & choir seating areas, the Torpedo Factory Group installed 8 Selecon PL Fresnel lanterns which allow a soft and subtle directional spot. The lanterns are powered by Selecon’s patented LED colour engine which offer a vast palette of colours to choose from.

The benefits

“We were delighted to install an elegant, bespoke yet cost-effective solution to the Bath Road Methodist Church. The quality of their lighting is stunning now and it’s really re-energised their services and events.” said TFG Project Manager, Mark Wiggins.

The team at Bath Road Methodist Church are delighted with the result, it’s elegant and had reduced their maintenance costs. “Throughout the project, we were highly impressed by the professionalism and knowledge of all the staff. The end result far exceeded our expectations. We would certainly use the Torpedo Factory Group again and would gladly recommend them.” Noel Hunt, Facilities Manager at Bath Road Methodist Church
