Lumenpulse Lights Boston City Hall

November 21, 2016

Lumenpulse luminaires chosen to light Boston City Hall highlight and revitalize the building’s unique “Heroic” style. An initiative from Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the city set out to liven up the City Hall Plaza as well as create an inviting space for locals and visitors alike.

The new lighting was unveiled during a Light Bright Beer Garden event last month.

To illuminate the original tripartite design of City Hall, lighting designers Lam Partners Inc. used a mix of durable, high-output Lumenbeam Grande RGBW and Lumenfacade RGBW luminaires, washing the hall’s façade in a warm white light as a regular setting, while also having the capability to project an array of colour options for civic and celebratory events. Lumenbeam Grande Pendant fixtures also replaced the original recessed lighting to illuminate the lower levels and highlight the building’s entrances.

Lumenpulse’s Lumentalk technology was essential for the success of this project. “Within instants, Lumentalk’s advantages stood out because we had to use the existing wiring,” explained Justin T. Brown, Associate Principal at Lam Partners Inc.

“Due to the building’s concrete structure, it was unrealistic to run exposed wiring along the sides and exterior. Lumentalk allowed us to utilize the existing AC mains voltage and wiring and turn them into a digital mesh network of communication. From there, we could control and dim the fixtures to the client’s liking.”

“We are very grateful for having been chosen to illuminate Boston City Hall,” said Francois-Xavier Souvay, President and CEO of Lumenpulse. “This city has played such a key role in Lumenpulse’s development in recent years and we view this as an honour to participate in this revitalization project.”

“For the first time in its 48 year history, Boston City Hall shines,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “This state of the art lighting system helps make City Hall the civic heart of our city by livening up the plaza, while making the area safer and connecting us to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. Bringing new light to City Hall is symbolic of a more responsive vision here at City Hall, one that is meant to be engaging, inspiring, and serve as a beacon of the city and our values.”
