The NOMA Earth Tubes – Manchester are part of the Co-operative Group’s NOMA development.  The three towers pull in fresh air for circulation around Angel Square – the Co-operative Group’s HQ, functioning as an environmentally friendly heating and ventilation system.

Cundall Light4 was appointed by The Co-operative Group and Hermes Investment Management to provide the lighting design for the earth tubes.

Taking the concept, Studiotech provided a full turnkey solution with our engineers installing a total of 9480 individually addressable LED lights to each earth tube, totalling a staggering 28440 LED lights!

I would like to congratulate the Studiotech team for the successful delivery of the NOMA Earth Tubes lighting project in Manchester which forms part of the Public Realm Phase 2 & 3 contract. Studiotech engineered the project from concept to completion in a professional and organised manner.  As Principal Contractor, Studiotech managed all aspects of a safe installation on a challenging site with the minimum disruption to the client and their stakeholders.
