Bespoke Feature Lighting - Grand Arcades, Wigan

Posted in Projects

Client:  Modus

Scope of Works:  Bespoke feature lighting, branding and wayfinding

Studiotech was invited to join the client's design team (Modus) to provide technical and engineering expertise.  The project required several special lighting features along with branding and signage on this prestigious development located in the centre of Wigan.

Having agreed the branding strategy, specialist fabricators were employed to manufacture and install the individual signs: large format flex face panels with 3-dimensional acrylic logos.  Also, individual fabricated aluminium and polished stainless steel letters with LED illumination and bespoke fabricated aluminium panels were produced in order to convey a fully coherent suite of signs.  All agreed that this maximised visibility and navigation to and within the scheme.

Special features such as interactive ponds, tree lined malls and lighting effects were also added, the pinnacle of which was the installation of 3 x 4.5m long colour changing chandeliers within the main entrance atrium which were installed over 18m above the mall and linked via a DMX controller to allow for synchronised colour changing and sequences.
