The Project:

George Place was a wonderful experience for our team, it was a unique project of epic proportions, utilising both our projects and integrations teams, we are so proud of the outcome.

The refurbishment of George Place in Sydney’s CBD involved not only a refresh, but an elevation of the joint-foyer of three prominent city buildings to create a striking public space. The scope and complexity of the project was adjusted during the process in order to achieve the design vision, and we relished the opportunity to remain agile in designing, re-designing and finding creative solutions within the project constraints and deadlines. Being a refurbishment of a busy dynamic space, it was important that this project was carried out with minimal interruptions for the tenants.

The result at George Place is an example of an integration solution, where a lighting control system is designed to cater to efficiency, control, and beauty. With 1,780 individual components measured and made onsite for the 365 ceiling fittings and 280 feature wall fittings, these are made up of 31,500 LED nodes.

With such intricate details the George Place lighting perfectly showcases a stunning iconic Sydney precinct. As proof of the quality of this project we were thrilled to accept the NECA NSW Excellence Award in the Lighting category for the George Place project, which is a showcase of and testament to our long-standing and rewarding partnership with FDC Group.
