The solution

A bespoke, multi-function lighting scheme which has helped to transform Bromley North village.

We worked with Lighting Design it Does Lighting to realise the brief. Creating a smart 9m high split-level feature streetlight, with integrated lighting and CCTV that performs multiple functions.

Within each Forza luminaire there is a 90W CosmoPolis light source to illuminate the road plus a 3m LED light source (4,000K) to illuminate the paths; complementary in colour temperature to the CosmoPolis road lighting.

The need to allow for seasonal decorations was considered from the outset. Electrical connections are tucked away, so invisible for the majority of the year and neat and tidy even when in use during the festive season.

" The brighter and pedestrian-friendly streets have brought fantastic new bars, restaurants and shops to the area. Weekday footfall is up 62%, weekend footfall is up 49%, and empty units are down; the improvements have been great for shoppers, restaurant-goers and businesses alike "

 Michael Rutherford, Bromley Town Ward Councillor
