Abacus Lighting

Colney Training Centre

State-of-the-art football training centre requires sports lighting solution

Norwich: August 2019





Challenge

Colney Training Centre is situated just west of the city of Norwich and is the training facility for Norwich City Football Club as well as being the home of Norwich City’s Academy.

A recent £5m investment has seen the installation of new pitches, irrigation system and stand along with a new floodlighting system.

This state-of-the art development required a sports lighting solution which would provide pitch lighting to 500 Lux.

Solution

  • 15 x HL250 base-hinged masts
  • 32 x Challenger 1® floodlights
  • 1 x Centralised control cabinet


Abacus came highly recommended for this project owing to its success of installing Premier League sports floodlighting at Norwich City FC’s Carrow Road Stadium. Our proven track record and turnkey sports lighting offering made Abacus the obvious choice for this project.

With 32 x Challenger 1® floodlights mounted on Abacus HL250 base-hinged masts, the new floodlighting system adheres to the relevant lighting specification of 500 Lux whilst providing excellent light control.

The club are now able to hold evening training sessions throughout the year.
