Case Study

Collegiate AC features a select range of the UK's finest student accommodation residences. With the reassurance of market-leading experience, they help students enjoy their time at university.

Collegiate’s philosophy is to create an unforgettable student experience through inspiring living environments, where the students are safe, comfortable and at complete ease.

Set across 16 floors and 2 buildings, Collegiate’s Bagot Street is the ideal accommodation and location for students studying at Aston University and Birmingham City – it is also only a short journey from the University of Birmingham.

Jasper Sanders & Partners were tapped to oversee the interior design of Bagot Street student accommodation. The architecture and interior design studio take a bold and innovative approach to ensuring spaces and places achieve their maximum potential for those that use and own them. The result is intelligent design tailored specifically to the needs of the client; design that challenges the status quo and promotes motivation and inspiration.

JS&P understand the crucial role lighting plays in designing any space. On more than one occasion the studio has asked for Ansell Lighting products to be involved in projects they oversee. Bagot Street is the latest JS&P project to feature Ansell’s LED lighting.

Within Ansell’s display range, we offer a wide range of high quality track and surface systems that offer great value for money. One of our many great product offerings within the range happened to be installed in multiple areas of the accommodation due to its build-quality, reliability and incredible feature set. 

The product installed was the Unity 0 Surface LED Mains. The spotlight, a compact Surface Mounting LED spotlight with integral driver was utilised throughout the gym, cinema room and social areas.

The main feature and biggest attraction for JS&P was the products ant-glare design that allows for visual comfort. Perfect for all the applications within the accommodation.

Another key feature is the 355° rotation with 0-180° tilt on bracket allowing the spotlights to be positioned in any direction you wish.

As with all Ansell LED luminaires, the energy saving aspect is not to be overlooked. The Unity 0 Surface LED Mains is a true 50W halogen replacement. Allowing the client great savings on energy bills that can be re-invested elsewhere to elevate the living experience even further.  The spotlight also comes with an LED lifespan of L70 50,000 hours.

The project was a smashing success with JS&P delivering a thoughtfully designed space that was in line with Collegiate’s philosophy of creating unforgettable student experiences through inspiring living environments. Ansell’s Unity 0 Surface LED Mains not only fit well with the overall aesthetic of each space, but served its purpose to bring high quality and reliable lighting to some of the most important living spaces within the accommodation.
