Understanding how a city operates and recognising its cultural and architectural heritage in order to enhance its identity
Illuminating a city should contribute to increasing its attractiveness while allowing it to control its energy bill.
Other than artistic illuminations, determining the type and level of lighting for a road or a public space helps enhance the city’s urban characteristics and improve the safety of its inhabitants.
In order to offer cities services adapted to their specific characteristics and budget constraints, Citelum draws up a lighting master plan.
The lighting master plan comes into play at an early stage of a lighting renovation project. It comprises an analysis of the city, a diagnostic of its infrastructures, and a proposal to enhance its nocturnal landscape.
Analysis: The Citelum teams study the city during the day and at night in order to determine the use of infrastructure, the habits of its residents, and the landscapes to highlight.
Diagnosis: Traffic lanes, public spaces, and monuments to be enhanced are also identified. The type and intensity of the lighting for each are prioritised and defined.
Proposal: Citelum submits the lighting master plan to the city with a commitment to the energy performances of the renovated systems.
The lighting master plan can be accompanied by the installation of the platform MUSE® by Citégestion, Citelum subsidiary, which maps out the city’s infrastructure in order to provide real-time monitoring of their evolution and to help schedule interventions.
