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!
Studiotech are pleased to announce that we have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health & safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health & safety management amongst contractors.
The company's application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place."
"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Studiotech has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within this sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
