Better lighting requires brilliant light poles
Location: Bournemouth, United Kingdom
Challenge: Create an outdoor space that is practical and inviting, while utilizing sustainable materials.
Valmont Structures consulted with the Project Lead and Lighting Designer to craft beautiful customized wooden lighting structures.
Inspired light poles, inspired lighting
Bournemouth is a popular resort town on the southern coast of the UK. For this project, implemented in 2015, Valmont engineered sleek, bespoke wood lighting columns and high masts.
Valmont was chosen for our superior capabilities with wooden poles, as well as for the exceptional, end-to-end support we were able to provide Schréder Group. Combining the sustainability of recyclable wood with lasting decorative impact that transforms urban environments, we specially designed the columns to support multiple light fittings at varying heights.
The clean aesthetics transcend simple illumination and bring beauty and a sense of wellbeing to outdoor spaces. Now a modern network displays interactive lighting to the delight of the area’s many visitors exploring the nearby Oceanarium and other seaside attractions.
