USA - With a rich history of providing a genuine worship experience to families across the greater Orlando area, Calvary Orlando has recently set off on a new direction. Wanting to better illuminate the sanctuary as part of a complete lighting and dimming upgrade, they turned to Techni-Lux who designed and specified a new house system filled with Chalice LED downlights from Altman Lighting.
“Calvary Orlando is the second largest church in the Orlando area, and it is also used as a special event and live concert facility,” says Tony Hansen, Techni-Lux head lighting designer and project specialist. “We have worked with them for a number of years, and this is a project that has really been in need for some time. The lighting system dated back to its original construction and it was very antiquated. Additionally, they were having consistent issues with the dimming system and it was becoming difficult to maintain.”
As Calvary Orlando began the sanctuary renovation process, new lighting fixtures were not originally part of plan, but soon became a design possibility. Wanting to maintain the aesthetics of the facility while still upgrading the lighting experience, the church was attracted to the performance and ease of installation offered by a Chalice solution.
“Prior to the lighting renovation, we had only been discussing putting in a new dimming system, but as funding for the lights started to come into place, the Altman Chalice was also coming onto the market,” continues Hansen. “The church started testing products with multiple demos, and what we found was that the Chalice could easily drop in place without a lot of modification. This made them an ideal solution because there were over 450 house fixtures which needed to be replaced with many as high as 65-feet off the ground that could only be accessed from above.”
For the installation of the new house lighting design, the team at Techni-Lux coordinated with Kevin White of Toolman Electric and Kirk O’Connor of CYA Productions
“In addition to the lighting renovation, the entire control system got upgraded as well so they now have individual DMX control of the house lights for matrixing, movement and light isolation all controlled through a theatrical console and wall stations,” concludes Hansen.
