The Gold Coast Turf Club hosts approximately 60 race meetings each season, including Australia’s richest raceday (the Magic Millions). In addition to horse racing, the venue boasts many event and function spaces, including a large car park that doubles as a host-area for big events including the annual Gold Coast Show. In the past, illuminating an area of this size would require high-wattage HID flood lights which consume large amounts of energy and require regular maintenance. Having close residential streets also meant the lighting system would need to have precise control to avoid spilling light into neighbouring properties.
Advanced Lighting Technologies (ADLT) supplied the Cree Edge High Output Area Luminaire to light the 34,000m2 area to Australian standards. Using only 18 light fittings and 12 poles, the end result is a safely illuminated area using a low maintenance, low energy and robust lighting system that will stand the test of time.
