About the presentation

With renewable powering methodologies close to the centre of the lighting programmes, briefings will be received on the lighting design (including mini wind turbines and photo voltaics implementation, lux levels, lamp types, energy consumption and generation, impact on wildlife) and lighting towers by prefabrication at ground level and lifting in place to avoid working at height.

Michael focuses on the LPR covering how we designed for Legacy with temporary overlay for games, how this worked and what technology used to achieve this. In addition, the approach to protecting biodiversity along with the development of the Memory Masts.
