Barnardos Australia

Great work is made easier with great workplaces, and what better work than that done by Barnardos Australia!

Servicing Australian families since 1921, Barnardos Australia works with children, young people and families to break the cycle of disadvantage by creating safe, nurturing and stable homes, connected to family and community. Their services are regionally well-known and include family support, foster care, open adoption, adolescent services, and indigenous programs.

Trend Lighting was approached by Blue Group Projects to consult on the outfitting of lighting for the head office of Barnardos Australia. Our design team demonstrated lighting concepts for the proposed layout using Trend luminaires. Recommendations were made to improve the lighting plan as well as to meet Australian Standards for Interior & Workplaces. 3D renderings and lighting maps were supplied to clearly communicate lighting applications to meet lux requirements for the project.

ZDA123 linear luminaires are prominent across all work areas. They continue to be a high performing and popular option in office environments for their versatility. Blue Group Projects went ahead with the 4000K option, providing a comfortable light with neutral colour. The addition of ZDA123 luminaires, configured with direct and indirect lighting to illuminate the ceiling, creates an illusion of vertical space.

The pedestrian areas were illuminated with rod suspended XSR10 luminaires powder coated in black. The lighting solution was configured to match the ZDA's providing an even distribution of light across the entire office.

While Trend Lighting may illuminate spaces of all shapes and sizes, the work that Barnardos Australia does illuminates lives. Trend Lighting is honoured to be able to work with Blue Group Projects in supplying a lighting solution to one of Australia's most active charity organisations.

"The team from Trend worked closely with us to deliver a lighting design within budget that would maximise the potential of the lighting in the space. The light fittings selected looked great and were great value. The up and down lighting worked perfectly to take advantage of the exposed high ceiling and provide warmth to the space. The lighting design provided by Trend completely transformed the space and was continuously complimented by our clients from the first day we had them up. We look forward to working with Trend for our future projects. " Ben Bottalico - Blue Group Projects
