Case Study Manchester United Football Club Old Trafford Stadium Manchester


Case Study Fact File Client: Manchester United Football Club Project: West Stand & SE Quadrant hospitality areas Location: Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester Contractor: Alard Electrical Ltd Luminaires: TTX, Syncro M, Syncro S1, Syncro S2, Buddy M


With this in mind, the TTX downlight, powered by Xicato, was chosen for the ambient lighting in the corridor areas. The 700 lumen, 3000K TTX with 60° beam and centre etched glass provided the perfect amount of light and offered a quality and aesthetically pleasing fitting for the location. In addition to the TTX fittings, Syncro M, S1 and S2 LED lights were selected for the adjustable display lighting to highlight the various pictures which adorn the corridor walls, as well as above the doorways leading off the corridors. Each of these fittings offered 580 lumen output, 4000K, a choice of 54° and 24° beam angles and a brushed aluminium finish. For the toilets and hospitality bar area, the Buddy M fitting was selected as an excellent low energy alternative to the 50W halogen GU10. The Buddy M provided a cost effective adjustable and lockable gimbal, 40° beam angle and a warm colour temperature of 2700K. It was at this point that Hannon Associates, Building Services Consultants for the project, were asked to review the fittings supplied by Gamma. After analysis and a range of tests, the fittings were approved for the job. Project Requirements: As the football season drew to a close, it was time for Old Trafford to commence its renovation projects, including the hospitality areas in the West Stand and South East Quadrant. All of this needed to be completed before Paul Scholes’ testimonial, which was no mean feat when you consider that the match was only a couple of months away. Alard Electrical Ltd, the electrical contractors for the renovation project, had previously worked with Gamma on other projects and so was happy to recommend the company as a reliable partner for the lighting requirements of the renovation. Project Solutions: The renovation of the hospitality areas in the West Stand and South East Quadrant was a prestigious project and the selected LED fittings had to help create a luxurious ambience that reflected the high-end surroundings yet didn’t detract from the other creative and decorative lighting features.

Project Results: As well as creating the desired ambience the LED luminaires will save a substantial amount of time and money over their long life when compared to other light sources. A prime example of this is the Buddy M which consumes only 7W giving a saving of up to 85% when compared with a 50W halogen GU10. Further savings will be made from the exceptional life of 50,000 hours (L70) offered by the TTX luminaires, during which time there will be low maintenance costs and minimal disruption no-relamping requirements. To the delight of Manchester United the renovation project was completed on time and without any issues, which meant that the hospitality area was open for business in time for the testimonial match. The reduction in energy and carbon emissions, realised from the new luminaires, are sure to have helped Manchester United achieve a number one ranking in the Environment Agencies Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) league table. The table ranks 2,000 organisations on the steps they’ve taken to comply with the standards of energy management set out by the Carbon Trust.

Due to the continual investment in lighting technology the performance values stated in this case study may have improved. Please check the latest datasheets at www.gamma-uk.com for up-to-date information.
