It's been an exciting start to June here at Studitoech as we welcome a couple of new members to the team.
Phil haldane joins as Business Development Manager. Phil has over 23 years experience in the lighting industry and is trained in Stage Lighting and sound having worked in the theatre industry for many years. He also specialises in Architectural Lighting, Stage systems (Lighting/sound/AV) and advanced control systems.
Andy Buckley joins as an electrical engineer. Andy has worked on many Studiotech installations over the years as a sub contractor so is more than familiar with our projects and the industry.
Friday 20th October saw the official opening the first phase of the new £100m Liverpool Shopping Park. Studiotech have been responsible for delivering the feature lighting to various areas throughout the project including linear facade feature lighting, catenary lighting and not forgetting the illumination of the giant Mecanno Liver Bird.
The 30ft sculpture was commissioned by The Derwent Group, Liverpool City Council and Spin Master – the owners of Meccano and designed by internationally-renowned local artist Emma Rodgers to commemorate Liverpool-born toy-maker Frank Hornby and the first Mecanno factory.
It has been a pleasure working with such a fantastic design and delivery team at Liverpool Shopping Park which included The Derwent Group, AEW Architects, Caddick Construction, Warrington Martin project managers and Tace M&E Consulting.
What great news that The Light has been shortlisted in the 'Retail Lighting Project of the Year' category in this year's Lux Awards. Such a fantastic project to be involved with and working in great company, collaborating with the talented lighting design team at Hoare Lea Lighting.
The Light has been shortlisted alongside some truly brilliant projects and we excitedly wait to see which project will be awarded winners on the night.
Good luck team Light Leeds!
