Billingsgate architectural lighting
The Traffic Light Tree, is an 8-metre high public sculpture, designed by Pierre Vivant. It had been removed from its original Docklands site following road improvements. The artwork was re-installed by NR Hardy in Billingsgate including cabling, traffic light heads and 75 sets of computer-controlled lights. The red, green and amber lights are randomly sequenced to reflect the frenetic rhythm London life.
LED refit for Thames Piers
When the lighting for Blackfriars, Mill and Bankside millennium piers needed improvement, NR Hardy completed this technically challenging cabling and high IP LED refit. Work was completed overnight with piers restored to public use by 6am each day. PAR sensors were installed to control each light and optimise energy efficiency.
Maintenance of riverside walkway
The Crown Reach residential development is located beside the Thames near Vauxhall bridge. Our engineers were called upon to maintain the ornamental lighting on the weather-exposed, pedestrian walkway which forms part of the Thames Path. Works included an upgrade of the decorative lamps and essential lighting repairs to ensure in-light reliability.
Meter hub for Clacton depot
NR Hardy was asked to upgrade the old lighting scheme at this industrial estate and goods depot. Work included running cables from the feeder pillar across the roof structure despite the persistent seagull hazard. A meter hub was installed to enable separate energy supply and billing to individually leased units.
Architectural lights in New Cross
As part of a £4 million redevelopment project, NR Hardy installed architectural lighting for this pedestrian subway in New Cross. The floral artwork in galvanised steel was designed by local artist Heather Burrell. The design was backlit with colour-changing DALI controlled LEDs.
Piccadilly lighting upgrade
Existing lighting infrastructure had come to the end of its economic life at the Piccadilly underpass in London. N.R Hardy installed temporary lighting to enable the decommissioning and removal of the original lighting and the installation and commissioning of the new LED lighting arrangement.
