Candela Light have played a part in The Wizard of Oz inspired transformation of Eberle Street, at the heart of Liverpool’s LGBT community in the city’s Commercial District.
Candela have designed and manufactured two bespoke LED Eberle Street signs along with bespoke LED lighting across the street, complementing the hexagonal shape and structure of the paving below.
Nigel Astley, Managing Director at Candela commented “Candela have a diverse experience of working on both public and private sector projects, we have always taken pride in creating bespoke designs and we are really pleased with final result.”
The works are part of a £1.6m scheme, which have improved the pedestrian connection linking the Commercial District to the city’s retail core, and have been jointly funded by the Liverpool BID Company and Liverpool City Council.
Jim Gill, chairman of the Commercial District BID, said: “The completion of Eberle Street is truly the jewel in the crown of the district’s public realm renovation project.
“Eberle street is key to the night time economy so it’s fantastic to see it gain a new lease of life following its redesign.”
Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, Liverpool City Council cabinet member for regeneration, said: “The transformation of Eberle Street has been a great success story between the public and private sector and has created a beacon for the community that everyone can take pride in. Hopefully it will help drive more footfall to this unique and diverse part of the city centre.’’
