Eberle Street: Lighting the Yellow Brick Road – LED Lighting Refurbishment Project

Eberle Street: Lighting the Yellow Brick Road – LED Lighting Refurbishment Project

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.Bespoke exterior lighting

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.’’

Aston Luminaire LED, Edgbaston Priory  Club

Aston Luminaire LED, Edgbaston Priory Club

Candela Light was initially approached by the Edgbaston Priory Club in Birmingham which had expressed an interest in the company’s LED technology, in particular the efficiency and energy savings the system could offer.The Aston Luminaire heritage lantern was chosen by the club.

Following consultation with sales engineers Candela were asked to supply the Aston heritage lantern, fitted with a 60W LED light source to illuminate part of the grounds.

The Aston Luminaire lantern was chosen because it provided continuity with fittings supplied previously by Candela on other areas of the site. The fittings, built at the company’s factory in Birmingham, were deemed a great success once installed. Candela was therefore asked to replace the existing 150W metal halide Aston fittings with the same LED light source.

Following further consultation it was suggested that rather than build and supply new lanterns, the LED unit could be retrofitted into the old luminaires. This would be carried out in the factory, but still offered the customer a cost saving compared with purchasing new units.

Following completion of the site, both staff and members associated with the club have complimented the new installation, making particular reference to the improved light levels compared with the previous installation.
