New Bridge Street
Newcastle Upon Tyne
ASD / Thorn
Park was appointed to design and supply lighting to the acorn block of new build student accommodation for Northumbria University at New Bridge Street.
The main client was Robertson Construction.
Park was tasked with designing and supplying the lighting to all corridors and staircases from the first floor upwards as well as the main entrance area, lobby and recreational areas.
To fall in line with the energy efficiency drive on the building, LED lighting was used throughout incorporating lighting controls into the individual luminaires in communal areas so that they would dim down/switch off when areas were not occupied.
Architectural suspended linear lighting and various decorative pendants with contemporary LED lamps were used within the front of house areas including reception, common rooms and breakout areas to provide a pleasing and welcoming ambiance. Once again, all of the luminaires incorporated energy efficient LED illuminates.
“I have worked with Park for eight years. The team at Park assist on projects across the country even if they do not have a base there and provide an excellent service at economical prices. The work at New Bridge Street, in particular, the lighting design assistance on the hub of the ground floor was fantastic”
