Pete Lummis, project engineer at Huntingdonshire District Council was clear in his vision; to create a focal point with LED, complementary to the surrounding Son lighting.
The bridge was illuminated with our Kaskara floodlight, with chip-on-board LED; the light source directed onto the white structure via unique double asymmetric floodlight reflectors. A 4000K LED was selected to emphasise the Chinese bridge and provide contrast to the surrounding Son lighting.
Son lighting was used to bring out the warm tones of surrounding buff-coloured brickwork. We refurbished the existing heritage bracket and replaced the luminaire; our traditional Berkeley luminaire was approved by the conservation officer. Tizona Son floodlights were additionally used for their discrete appearance.
The council are delighted with the scheme that balances the use of LED and Son lighting and Godmanchester now has a well-lit, warm inviting area that leads to its stunning footbridge.
