LED Architectural Lighting - Retail Park, West Thurrock.

Posted in Projects

Client:  The Junction

Scope of Works:  Design and build of 2no feature canopies and bespoke lighting solution

Studiotech had been approached by Benoy to assist in a feasibility exercise on lighting to the proposed wand tips on what was then a concept for a feature-faceted canopy.  Studiotech developed a bespoke LED lighting system mounted within the wands.

As the project developed, working closely with Benoy, Studiotech developed a full LED lighting solution which included both internal and external luminaires to help deliver the architects' vision.

However, the future of the project began to look doubtful when, due to the complexity of the design and the cost of fabrication, the cost became prohibitive.

We then completed a cost engineering exercise and were able to offer a full design and delivery package that came in under the budget figure and was feasible within the project programme and so Studiotech designed, engineered, fabricated and managed the delivery of the contemporary and striking 100m long illuminated structure and all its lighting.

The client then requested that a second canopy be produced for another phase of the development and, although this second canopy was to share the aesthetic of the first, the engineering was entirely different.

Working with architechts, The Harris Partnership, Studiotech developed a design that adopted many of the principles used in the first canopy but were then engineered to match the requirements of the second and another fabrication team were employed to complete the delivery of the second canopy.
