Surrey Civic Centre & Plaza
Over the past several years, Metro Vancouver’s largest municipality has undergone revitalization including a $500 million Civic Centre Development Project.
The new Civic Centre includes a City Hall and municipal office building that overlooks a vast Civic Plaza. Eos Lightmedia were retained to design lighting for a variety of disparate spaces including offices, an atrium, council chambers, public spaces, meeting rooms and the outdoor plaza.
We addressed each area based on its unique requirements. Eos designed energy-efficient lighting for the offices, complete with photometric sensors to adjust to changes in daylight so occupants experience consistent light levels regardless of the weather or hour. Eos designed feature lighting for the central atrium and adjacent council chamber to accommodate a variety of events, provide circulation lighting, and complement the architecture. Studio Roso created a significant piece of public art the central atrium, for which Eos designed, focused, and programmed the feature lighting. And to cap it all off, we created programmable lighting and effects for celebrations in the Civic Plaza.
Today, the offices are filled, City Hall is bustling, and the Civic Plaza is the centerpiece of the city’s outdoors events and celebrations. The new Surrey City Hall is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certified building and the Civic Centre is a new architectural landmark in the emerging downtown core.
