PhotonStar’s most sustainable project, The Arcola Theatre in Hackney, has been shortlisted for the Leisure Retrofit award in the 2013 Greenbuild Awards.
Aiming to celebrate true sustainability, the awards recognise buildings in use that focus on actual measured performance rather than design intent or performance specifications.
The Arcola theatre is the forerunner in measurable sustainable practises within the arts community and is on the journey to becoming the world’s first carbon neutral theatre. The theatre recently underwent complete sustainable refurbishment, a key element of which was the installation of PhotonStar LEDs throughout to improve the overall efficiency and quality.
Arcola has a strong focus on environmental performance, regularly carrying out sustainability projects not only to increase efficiency but also to educate and inspire the community.
As one of the shortlisted projects, the Arcola Theatre will be judged by a panel of distinguished industry leaders who are looking for the leisure retrofit project that has reduced its environmental impact more effectively than its rivals.
The winners will be revealed at a celebratory dinner on 8th May, held at Manchester's Midland Hotel.
