The business

Queen Mary University of London is among the UK's leading research focused universities, based in the heart of London's East End, it has over 21,000 students and 4,000 staff - and seven Nobel-Prize winners among it's alumni. The library is part of a £105 million investment in new facilities.

The problem

Light levels can affect students' wellbeing, their ability to concentrate and overall study experience. Creating an environment where students can thrive is paramount.

The library's existing lights needed frequent bulb replacement, creating prolonged periods of weak light. Poor lighting - either too bright or too dim - can cause eyestrain and headaches, affecting study performance.

The solution: Cu-Beam Up light

"The old lights didn’t support our carbon reduction target. Now we're noticeably reducing the energy consumption, despite the building being open longer," says Dixon

  • Powerful lighting

    Cu-Beam Up lights use a custom-engineered bubble optic lens for an ultra-wide distribution of powerful light. This can eliminate weak spots, ideal for study environments where ambient lighting is often complimented by desk lamps. As Julien Dixon says: "The quality of the light means that our students' productivity can improve as their eyes feel less strained."

  • Efficent illumination and long-lasting brightness

    Cu-Beam Up lights work with a single power-efficient LED. Heat pipe technology draws heat away, maintaining brightness for up to 180,000 hours.¹
