Lighting Design & Specification

March 4, 2022

LDS Luminis StBruno Bellevue 400Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, in Quebec, Canada, has a vision for its municipality that embraces universal accessibility and active transportation. This includes sharing roads between pedestrians, cyclists and automobiles. When the city embarked on an infrastructure project to rebuild Montarville Street it also took the opportunity to add a 3-meter wide multipurpose path, widen the sidewalks, and convert street lighting to LED.

Montarville Street is not only a main thoroughfare of the community, it is also the heart of the city’s festivals, including the annual “Fête du Lac” festival that takes place each February. So, the city looked for a lighting solution that would underscore the importance of this neighborhood.

Electrical engineers at Induktion specified the roadway lighting, choosing Luminis’ Bellevue BVA  for the project. The Bellevue family has a bold, contemporary design. But while its clean, modern form suits the everyday ambiance of the street, it also brings with it an extra energy and dynamic that enlivens a festival setting.

“Bellevue really does have a wonderfully unique aesthetic,” said Guillaume Ferland, project manager at Induktion. “It’s very different than other lighting in Saint-Bruno, which gives the street the special look and feel we sought as people come together for the various events.”

Beyond its modern rectilinear design, Bellevue offers a choice of three unique optic types to address targeted lighting needs. The BVA series was selected because the optics were specifically designed for street and area applications where performance and reliability are essential. The advanced LED optical system creates a uniformly illuminated surface. Light goes where it is intended, so residents can safely navigate the street and pathways at night.

While Montarville Street is primarily residential, the combination of sidewalks, bike paths and an elementary school creates substantial pedestrian and car traffic, with many children. Due to the school proximity, and higher pedestrian activity, a higher light level of 9 lux was used along the street, following IESNA recommendations.

For aesthetic purposes, poles along the street are staggered in a zigzag formation. Ferland therefore chose a single head BVA luminaire, with Type IV distribution. Each fixture throws sufficient light to the roadway as well as sidewalks on the opposite side of the street. A house side shield on each luminaire’s optics minimize light and glare to neighboring homes, some of which are particularly close to the poles.

Double-headed BVA luminaires, placed at 180° on the post, are installed on a boulevard in front of the elementary school. They too are Type IV distribution, but with a light level of 13 lux for more visibility.

“We needed the double-head Bellevue BVA to effectively illuminate the roadway on one side of the boulevard and the school drop-off zone on the other, providing additional security for students and parents in the evening hours,” said Ferland.

Ferland says he appreciated the extensive options available with the Bellevue series. Beyond the head design, distribution type and house side shield, he chose a 3000K color temperature to give a warm yet crisp illumination to the street and sidewalks. An optional photocell is used to control dusk-to-dawn lighting.

The city plans to introduce a smart city management system at a later date, so Luminis provided a receptacle for each fixture that enables the city to install the control nodes when ready.

Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists can now take advantage of an active transportation plan just as the city had envisioned. And Luminis’ striking street lighting is contributing to that, facilitating a safe environment day to day, and a vibrant festival atmosphere when needed.
