  4 Buildings known as the Quadrant MK housing 3000 staff under 1 glazed roof covering "The Street" together with car park & external are all controlled by Simmtronic SPECS3 Lighting Control System. Different departments from Engineering, Logistics, IT, Finance etc come together acting as their national centre supporting the whole of the country as part of their re-structure to improve their working methods.  "The Street" concept offers a stimulating environment to work with an inner and an outer atria where meeting facilities and breakout facilities encourage excellent motivation for collaborations and an EXCELLENT BREEAM rating for energy efficiency.
  DALI dimming technology are fully utilised offering good daylight dimming energy regulation on a large area of the property.  Innovative installation methods were also employed moving away from traditional LCM using open ceiling design reducing the cost of false ceiling and getting the best value from tax payer's finance. DALI Hubs were used instead of LCMs which meant every light fitting required programming of its individual DALI address. Using advance commission tools, this turned out to be no challenge and the project was commissioned well and even the emergency fittings were addressed and configured so that they can be tested under the ATS - Automatic emergency Testing System with the Simmtronic Lighting Controls System. 41 AC's, 730 LCMs, 1554 Sensors SP DALI sensors on daisy-chained DALI hubs in risers. ATS Touchscreen is utilised to further make maintenance a step easier to operate and diagnose any fittings not meeting its emergency lighting health criteria.
