Management to Examine Lighting Issue

One of our Trader Representatives met with management this week to discuss the issue of dim lighting within the upper sheds. Lux meter readings were presented to management showing that some stalls have sub-standard lighting levels.

Discussion took place on extending skylights to take full advantage of natural light, choice of globes, assessment of lamp heights, and alternative lamp types. The extension of skylights does increase the risk of heat in summer and it was agreed that the south side of roof structures (away from the sun) would provide the best opportunity for increasing light while minimising heat transference. Additionally, new developments in the ability of skylight panels to reflect heat would be considered.

Management said they had a number of options to consider for problem lighting areas and that they would get back to us. We will keep traders informed.
