The Brief

The Ground and 6th floor of the university required reconfiguration and refurbishment to install a new lecture theatre, offices and student services desk.

Our Approach

Our teams collaborated closely with the main contractor and client to understand the brief and electrical and lighting requirements. To help achieve the client’s environmental, efficiency and sustainability KPIs, 79lighting supplied and installed a new lighting scheme, small power and data for the Ground and 6th floor.


The Solution

The university was still fully operational during the refurbishment so a phased programme of works was put in place.

All light fittings supplied by 79lighting, please contact the team for further details.
