Architectural Bridge Lighting
The design for the Cambridge Pedestrian Bridge required a customizable lighting & control solution. The LED Flex UltraBright, in RGBW, was chosen for it’s bright illumination and colour changing abilities.
The Cambridge Pedestrian Bridge, is bringing the focus ‘Back to the Rivers’. In the city’s effort to revitalize their historic waterways. The bridge connects the city’s Gaslight District to the LRT Terminal with the Grand River flowing beneath.
SGi provided the lighting and control systems for this 102-meter bridge that features SGi’s colour changing RGBW UltraBright LED Flex Lights .
Nearly 1500 linear feet of light was integrated with 50 unique RGBW decoders, and 3 independently controlled zones to make up this system. The centre of the bridge hosts a series of horizontal linear light bars that illuminate the viewing area.
SGi had the opportunity to work with a wonderful team of individuals which allowed them to coordinate the project vision into a reality! SGi provided technical drawings along with wiring and terminal diagrams.
