PhotonStar Win Greenbuild Award with Leisure Retrofit Project Arcola Theatre

PhotonStar’s most sustainable project, the Arcola Theatre in Hackney, has been awarded the Leisure Retrofit award in the 2013 Greenbuild Awards.
The Arcola theatre is the forerunner in measurable sustainable practices within the arts community and is on the way to becoming the world’s first carbon neutral theatre. The theatre recently underwent complete sustainable refurbishment, a key element of which was the installation of PhotonStar LEDs throughout to improve the overall efficiency and quality. 
Arcola has a strong focus on environmental performance, regularly carrying out sustainability projects not only to increase efficiency but also to educate and inspire the community.
Aiming to celebrate true sustainability, the Greenbuild Awards recognise buildings in use that focus on actual measured performance rather than design intent or performance specifications.
The award for the best leisure retrofit project was given by a panel of distinguished industry leaders who were looking for the project that had reduced its environmental impact more effectively than its rivals.
The Arcola Theatre was revealed as the winner of this category at the award ceremony at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on the 8th May.
