The Concept

BDP’s commission was for the production of an overall lighting master plan and detailed concepts for the interior and exterior of the Cathedral, the design of new audio visual installations to enhance visitor attractions and events and associated electrical engineering and controls systems to support the same. The interior light scheme is designed for multiple light scenes according to the usage. Special attention must be drawn to the method of installation of all new equipment and services routing.

The concept provides an overview of the look and feel of the design for a new lighting system for the Cathedral interior only. This design has been prepared in close collaboration with the Cathedral’s Steering Committee and their detailed consultation programme.
