The Challenges

Due to need to maintain correct lighting levels at all times for the travelling public, temporary lighting supplies were installed in advance of the stripping out works to enable works to proceed without the need of task lighting being set up at each shift.

The Delivery

New powder coated containment was installed and new sub mains, cabling and distribution boards including renewal of the platform lighting with photocell control and emergency lighting Installation to each platform. These works also included the installation of a new Inverter Installation for the emergency lighting circuits.

The Outcome

Lighting levels and customer satisfaction were dramatically improved by the installation of these new lighting systems.
