Glasgow Queen Street Station
Glasgow Queen Street Station has been redeveloped to cater for longer, greener trains and increased passenger footfall. The design team has removed buildings that previously hid the station from view and created more spacious and accessible concourse.
The lighting proposal delivers a clean and efficient lighting scheme that meets tha strict railway regulations, provides functionality and visual aesthetics. Giorgos was responsible for developing GRIP 4 and the lighting lead for works associated with GRIP 5 lighting package.
Giorgos joined the project at GRIP 4 and was responsible for developing the lighting solutions for all areas of the station. Lighting design had to be in line with the strict rail regulations and client's aspirations for the station.
Giorgos worked closely with lighting manufacturers and the architectural team to develop bespoke lighting solutions and integration details that will blend in with the architecture whilst satisfying the client aspirations and providing a low maintenance lighting scheme.
Following the successful sign off of the GRIP 4 documentation, Giorgos took the lead of moving forwards to the detailed design stage of the design and produce detailed documentation such as lighting layouts, luminaire schedules and lighting specification including control strategy.
Giorgos was also responsible to provide a single, fully coordinated BIM model that was used in clash detection and coordination meetings and later was adopted by the GRIP 6 engineers for the production of construction packages.
