Pele Tower, Creswell
We have been worked closely with Architect John Curtis in developing a services solution which complements this listed scheduled ancient monument but also provides facility to enable this to become a popular visitor attraction. We have provided detailed design for new lighting, heating and ventilation systems.
We assisted with the design and engineering associated with a new attraction at Leaplish Kielder. A new collection of Tipi tented structures are being erected for entertainment purposes at this popular venue. Kyoob have assisted with general power and lighting designs along with sympathetic external lighting designs bearing in mind the dark skies policy
St George’s Church, Jesmond
Kyoob were appointed directly by a charitable trust to design, tender and contract administrate the installation of external floodlighting to this grade 1 listed church building. This appointment further strengthens our significant experience in the ecclesiastic sector. The completion of the installation was celebrated by some 800 visitors attending a church service and firework display.
Seven Stories - National Centre for Childrens Books
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Seven Stories undertook a significant refurbishment across the building. This included new lighting installations, acoustic measures to the gallery close control cooling units, new close control units to the level 6 gallery, new audio/visual system and general upgrades to power and data systems. Seven Stories have recently been awarded gold in the Best Large Visitor Attraction at the North East Tourism Awards since re-opening. It really was a pleasure working on this project and we look forward to continuing our relationship in future.
St Bartholomew’s Church, Newbiggin
We completed specialist lighting designs at St Bartholomew’s church in Newbiggin. The work was completed on a tight budget using local suppliers and contractors which enabled fine tuning and “tweaking” to be undertaken quickly. We’re sure you’ll agree that it looks pretty spectacular.
This is one of many ecclesiastical projects we are currently working on, watch this space for further updates.
The Old Low Light, North Shields
We undertook detailed design for the refurbishment of this listed building. As with most listed properties, we had to take great care in the design of building services systems to satisfy heritage requirements whilst making the building a pleasant place to visit. We were on site a lot during construction to ensure our design intent was realised.
St Aidan’s Church, Bamburgh
Ed has recently completed specialist lighting designs to St Aidans’ shrine and the chancel in Bamburgh. The new shrine was designed by Donald Buttress OBE, currently Surveyor Emeritus at Westminster Abbey. The work was completed on a tight budget using local suppliers and contractors which enabled fine tuning and “tweaking” to be undertaken quickly.
