PROJECT TYPE
Civic

Working with landscape architects RJM Design Group and architect James Mickartz, tk1sc has helped energize downtown Ontario, California, with its new Town Center Square. The development of Ontario Town Square is part of the City of Ontario's plan to invigorate downtown Ontario and transform the area into a model of sustainable living, for which tk1sc provided Electrical and Audio-Visual Engineering services. The project team designed this Town Center's exterior to use 34% less energy than stipulated by California's stringent Title 24 energy code. Meeting civic concerns for safe light levels, energy savings, and low maintenance, StudioK1 devised a simple but elegant lighting scheme, supporting the rhythms of the central spine and the nautilus-shaped pathways and highlighting the new civic icon, the clock tower.

To revitalize its downtown, The City of Ontario has created a gathering place for its citizens to play, socialize and enjoy live entertainment. The design brief was to create an inviting and safe plaza, meeting stringent photometric criteria stipulated by the Police Department.

We used ultra-long life high-efficiency metal halide T9 lamps within the transitional pedestrian pole fixtures to meet high light levels that the City required for security while providing an aesthetic bridge to the existing acorn poles used throughout the City. We selected a warm, 3000K color temperature lamp with high CRI to offer an inviting atmosphere while also providing enhanced color rendering relative to the city standard High-Pressure Sodium lamps along the surrounding streets. A vertically lit palm tree grove provides additional platforms for security lighting.

The clock tower has become a new civic icon, and its monumentality is celebrated by LED uplighting from its base and an upper cornice. Additional illumination for the lawn area and sparkle are provided by LED step lights integrated into the seating risers. Integrated LED lighting within the bandshell provides ample illumination for an evening of music.

The lighting of the town square meets all of the City's objectives: it is safe, inviting, done within a tight budget, and provides for multiple events throughout the year.
