A Lighting Control Panel Specialist
The Royal National Theatre, on the South Bank of the Thames in London, undertook an ambitious project to renovate and upgrade their lighting systems. We have a wealth of experience in delivering Lutron systems and we are NICEIC approved and so we were delighted to be appointed as their specialist contractor. In the end, we designed and engineered more than 50 lighting panels, to provide lighting control in the front and back of house areas.
Strict Delivery Schedule
We worked very closely with electrical install expert Shepherd Engineering Services. We made sure that all of the lighting panels were correctly designed, perfectly engineered and delivered on schedule. To meet the strict installation programs, we engineered the panels in our workshop, testing them fully before final delivery to the site. Once there, we made the final connections and commissioned the panels.
The theatre remained operational during the renovations; so there was no margin for error in the schedule. We had to be very diligent to deliver the panels exactly when they were required. And also, critically, we made certain that the live performances and the visiting public were not impacted at all.
An important part of our work is making sure that we comply with Health and Safety rules and regulations. We always make sure that we work safely and in consideration of others. This is vital to smooth and safe project progress and so we take our obligations very seriously.
We are very proud that we met with all project milestones on this successful project and our client actually commended us for our ability to adapt to the scope changes mid-build. Indeed, we delivered each and every panel on time and we even adapted to late lighting design changes by working overnight, to ensure that there was no disruption to the working theatre.
