The Victoria Rooms, which houses the University of Bristol’s music department in Clifton, was originally constructed between 1838 and 1842 in the Greek Revival style of that period.
In the summer of 2013 we were involved in a lighting refurbishment of the main auditorium of this building. The existing chandeliers were removed and replaced with modern LED chandeliers that were approved for fitting into this listed building. These were suspended using specialist winching gear, which allows for easy maintenance and one man raising and lowering.
We feel that we managed to effectively create a modern lighting system that fitted in with the 150 year old architecture of the building. Ensuring that lighting installations conform to Listing Building Regulations is something we have experience of, so we were happy to take on this project and we were pleased with the results.
The Finished Project:
All the lighting is controlled digitally using a fully programmable dimmable DALI control system, which allows for numerous scene settings and is interfaced with the auditorium audio visual system.
