South Quay Plaza - One of Europe’s tallest residential towers
A landmark development in every sense and one of Europe’s tallest residential towers, South Quay Plaza provides sustainable high-rise living, comprising a series of luxury apartment blocks set to enhance the skyline of London’s Canary Warf.Delmatic’s advanced DALI system graphically manages and monitors lighting, emergency lighting and battery packs, across the sixty-eight storey South Quay Plaza 1 tower and the adjacent fifty-six storey South Quay Plaza 4 tower. The modular DALI system is a completely flexible and scalable solution for seamless extension into fit-out areas, residential amenity spaces and subsequent towers within the estate, to form a complete site-wide DALI system on a shared IP network. The fully-flexible system combines energy-efficient presence detection and daylight linking with aesthetic scene-setting throughout public and residential areas, residential amenity spaces such as the wellness centre and spa, gym, double height pool overlooking the docks, business lounge, co-working spaces, private dining and screening rooms, and the stunning residents lounge on the 56th floor of South Quay Plaza 1 – the highest residential bar in London.Delmatic’s IP DALI Buswire modules – located at hubs distributed throughout the towers – provide individual addressing and monitoring of every light fitting and this total flexibility enables lighting scenes and scenarios to be configured and adjusted to reflect time of day, weather conditions, special events and individual preferences. Lighting in fixed back-of-house areas such as basement routes and spaces are controlled by DALI Broadcast devices which provide the monitoring and efficiency benefits of DALI without the need to individually address each fitting.Delmatic Lightscape graphical software provides advanced networked and remote monitoring and management of the complete site-wide lighting installation with real time intelligence and analytics, including detailed emergency light monitoring and testing, fault detection diagnosis, individual lamp and driver diagnostics, and relamping schedules to ensure the proactive and sustainable replacement of luminaires.Delmatic’s innovative lighting management systems installed at South Quay Plaza received Highly Commended in the Residential category at the 2021 DALI Lighting Awards. The judges commented on the excellent use of DALI, particularly in the shared amenity spaces of the landmark residential tower. DALI, which stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface, is a dedicated protocol for digital lighting control that enables the easy installation of robust, scalable and flexible lighting networks. The DALI Lighting Awards recognise the very best use of DALI lighting control applications and solutions across the world.
