Lutron Homeworks QS system gets amBX driver

SunLight Solutions and manufacturer amBX, have announced the availability of a new integration driver for the Lutron Homeworks QS system with the amBX lighting effects generator; the system can be seen on demonstration at the Pulse Cinema showrooms in Stansted, UK.

The amBX integration driver was created for SLS by Andy Casey of DemoPad. Casey has many years experience with Lutron technology and has an in-depth knowledge of the amBX solutions, so the Lutron developments were a natural progression.

This latest development allows full integration of amBX Light-Scene Engine into a Lutron Homeworks QS system and opens up the entire dynamic and interactive lighting experiences possible from the amBX system.


Neil MacDonald, COO amBX, commented: “We’ve been looking to add amBX capabilities into a Lutron system design for some time. This development makes it a seamless experience for the user and we’re excited at the breadth of posibility this opens up for designers and installers” The amBX Light-Scene Engine works with any number of DMX controlled lights and now, designs and installations based on Lutron QS will no longer be restricted to a limited capability of this type of lighting.

Kevin Martin, MD of SunLight Solutions added: “Installers have been asking for a true integration solution so that they can add the excitement of amBX into Lutron projects. I’m delighted this is now posible, we already have new dealers with new projects on the strength of this facility.”

ESRG Developments announce big plans for 2017

ESRG development plans are in for Birmingham City Centre regeneration.

Planning has been submitted for 400 new apartments on two derelict industrial sites in Digbeth, Birmingham.

ESRG’s plans include partial demolition, refurbishment and erection of new buildings at 234-236 Bradford Street, to create 162 one-bedroom and 131 two-bedroom flats and six ground floor commercial units. There will also be parking for 61 cars and 292 bikes in a complex ranging from four to eight storeys.

In a second project, the team are planning to carry out further demolition before constructing 148 apartments, three ground floor commercial units and 11 parking spaces at nearby 250 and 251 Bradford Street and its corner with Alcester Street. This element will range from four to nine storeys and comprise 91 one-bedroom and 57 two-bedroom apartments with parking for 150 bikes.

Neil Grinnall, Director commented, “The vast investment in recent years in Birmingham city centre has changed the face of a once industrial city. Digbeth will be the subject of ongoing redevelopment and the scale and location of proposed buildings and associated commercial and amenity spaces reflect this city aspiration.

Both schemes add to ESRG’s current project portfolio which includes major residential and split use developments in Poole, Birmingham and the USA.
