  • Project Details:
    Studiotech was responsible for implementing the dynamic architectural lighting at the iconic Silver Jubilee Bridge in Runcorn as part of the wider maintenance and regeneration contract between Balvac and Halton Borough Council. Our comprehensive services included engineering design, electrical design, DMX system design, bespoke fixture mounting bracket design and manufacture, supply, installation as well as control and programming. A key aspect of the engineering design included accommodating for the listed status of the bridge as we were unable to drill or mechanically fix to the Grade II listed structure. To overcome this challenge, we devised a clamping mechanism for each bracket, containment, and cabling, specifically designed to prevent any damage to the historic bridge. The dynamic lighting dramatically improves the bridge’s aesthetics, highlighting the prominent landmark and creating a sense of identity for the entire community.
