Nuffield Hospital, North London Healthcare Case Study 

Solatube Daylighting Systems - Innovation in Daylighting
Solatube Daylighting Systems supplied and installed into patients rooms in Nuffield Hospital in North London
CHALLENGE 
Managers were keen to explore how natural light could be brought into this otherwise gloomy area, formerly illuminated by fluorescent lighting 
RESULTS 
Each system was installed with a remote controlled daylight dimmer to allow patients to control the light during the day if they wished 
PRODUCT 
10 Solatube SolaMaster Series units with remote control daylight dimmer kits 
FACILITY 
Private Hospital 
BACKGROUND: The North London Nuffield Hospital is a private hospital with 45 bedrooms offering a range of services and special clinics from acupuncture and bone densitometry through to vasectomies and X-Rays. While its primary focus is on providing excellence in the clinical and medical care it offers, the hospital is keen to make its patients’ stays in the hospital as pleasant as possible too and careful consideration is given to the design and ambience of patients’ rooms 
 
CHALLENGE: When it was decided to turn an unused internal space into four additional day care rooms at the hospital, managers were keen to explore how natural light could be brought into this otherwise gloomy area formerly illuminated by fluorescent lighting. 
 
SOLUTION: Initially, managers considered using traditional skylights but had concerns for potential security and safety in having an expanse of glass immediately above patients’ beds. Furthermore, their installation would be quite expensive, time consuming and disruptive. They then explored the possibility of using tubular skylights and were quickly convinced that these were the ideal products for their project. 
 
RESULTS: Ten Solatube 330DS (530mm diameter) Daylighting Systems were installed, each fitted with a remote controlled daylight dimmer to allow patients to control the light during the day if they wished.

“As soon as I spoke to Solatube it was obvious that they were much better informed than other companies in this field. They listened to the issues we were trying to address and were keen to help us find the right solution. We are very pleased with the effect the Solatubes have had in the day rooms in which they have been installed and are considering how we could use them at other Nuffield Hospitals to gain similar benefits.”
