The Great Hall Square at Lancaster University offers a pleasant space for students, lecturers and visitors to wander through and enjoy the cooling environment of a decorative water feature.
The plaza water feature consists of 15 jets in a 3 x 5 grid. Each jet has a maximum height of 1.5m controlled by individual DMX-controlled submersible pumps located beneath the feature in a water holding matrix consisting of pump troughs and an interconnecting pipework system.
Each display jet is installed with an LED colour-changing light unit around it to provide added visual impact.
A control system is also installed to enable the water jets and lighting sequencing to be programmed.
