Cape Town City Hall

An exemplar of cutting-edge sustainable lighting

The Cape Town City Hall is an Edwardian building in the heart of the city, dating back to 1905. The front stair balcony of the Italian Renaissance-style heritage building was used by Nelson Mandela for his first public address after being released from prison in 1990. The main concert hall regularly hosts renowned artists and is home to the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra.

As electrical engineer for the complete upgrade of the City Hall’s lighting system, we accomplished an extremely energy-efficient installation by implementing the latest LED lighting technology combined with a sophisticated dimming system. The City Hall is now considered as an exemplar of green building lighting, with an installation of a standard that has not previously been seen in Cape Town.
