Owing to the harsh weather conditions in winter and the severe project requirements, all the installed units had to guarantee the capability of withstanding very low temperatures. The Polar Edition, available for a great number of GRIVEN’s luminaires, features an integrated de-icing system with electrically heated glass, which assures a comfortable functioning even in the utmost severe cold weather conditions.
The fine-tuning and light programming of the installation were supervised by Mirel Petcu, an experienced partner of Professional Sound Impact Ltd. for this kind of jobs.
Sorin Stanescu, project supervisor and coordinator at Professional Sound Impact Ltd., who had previously achieved important successes with GRIVEN in Romania, asserts: "This was more than a challenging project as we were working on a historical monument, a very important testament of Bucharest culture and tradition. Unfortunately, the architectural peculiarity of the construction has generated many technical limitations, which did not allow us the utmost design freedom. Moreover, the installation schedule was very tight, living no room for mistakes. But in the end, nothing matters except the final result, and I think that what we have achieved, in spite of the many obstacles, repay us for the hard job we did.”
With this project, the most complex in this moment in Romania, GRIVEN becomes the leader in Romanian architectural lighting projects, along with the successful and impressive installations at Ramada Hotel Pitesti and Sheraton Hotel Bucharest, which were conceived, developed, and very professionally coordinated, as usual, by Sorin Stanescu and Professional Sound Impact Ltd.
