TEESIDE RETAIL PARK
Being one of the biggest retail parks in the country, Teesside will enjoy millions of visitors, who in the main will arrive by car. The architect and client wanted to illuminate the car park in an attractive manner, without using high mast floodlighting. The project uses more than 600 of the 3 metre special luminaires which are of aluminium construction with an opal cylinder diffuser. The light source is fluorescent and the paint finish is similar to that used on North Sea oil platforms for added protection. The luminaires which are situated in the car parking areas have a crash barrier to protect them from scratches and knocks.
