Bringing in a touch of French glamour to China, The Parisian Macao, Sands China’s newest gaming resort, has become the ultimate, must-visit destination on Cotai Strip. To create an authentic and luxurious experience, the hotel commissioned lighting specialists BAP Technology Consultants Limited to install a lighting system that would transport visitors straight to the original ‘City of Light’.
The property’s integrated resort facilities include 3,000 guestrooms and suites, multiple convention and meeting spaces, top-notch restaurants, a spa, a kids’ club, a health club, a pool deck with a themed water park, and a 1,200-seat theatre, among others. And for the first time in a resort of this scale, all the lighting, interior and exterior, is LED. This move is expected to save the hotel more than 5 million kWh of electricity each year, with the additional LED installation cost paying for itself in less than three years. The electricity saved would be enough to supply power to over 12,000 households in our sister SAR for an entire month.
To accommodate the LED lights within the hotel, BAP applied the Lutron Homeworks QS System to all VIP and presidential suite rooms so the lighting environment can be adjusted according to a preset schedule. The shift in lighting scenes is gradual, and the different moods add to the in-room experience, causing no inconvenience to guests.
For the Parisian Macao’s gaming area, which comprises as many as 150 tables and up to 2,500 slot machines, the Lutron Quantum system controls all the lighting. It is a total light management system that simplifies building maintenance and operations, and saves considerable amounts of money and energy at the same time. A built-in timer in the system adjusts the lighting automatically. This Lutron system also prolongs the lifespan of LED lights, which is especially important for casinos as they operate around the clock. Any replacement of light would necessitate temporary closure of certain areas, causing inconvenience to guests and possible business loss.
A highly flexible lighting system was required for the Parisian’s stunning ballroom and 5,200sq m meeting area, which consists of 36 individual, partitioned meeting rooms. These rooms can be combined to form over 100 room combinations based on different needs and the number of attendees. BAP’s programming team spent a lot of time and effort in writing a successful system program that could cater to the various events taking place at this glitzy new address.
