The Redcar Beacon is an 80ft tower originally known as the vertical pier , built in the town of Redcar as part of the area’s wider seafront regeneration scheme. Housing a café, office space radio station and a viewing platform, the £1.6m tower is the town’s tallest structure, spread over seven floors.
Having been opened in 2013 as part of the £75m redevelopment of the Redcar seafront with lighting design by Arups of Sheffield, the Beacon required some upgrade work to its lighting system. Having previously worked with LITE, Redcar and Cleveland Council appointed the company to replace the outdated fittings and bring back the original spectacular lighting effects. The Redcar Beacon forms part of a light installation that runs the full length of the seafront to the bandstand.
LITE needed to ensure the new system was low-maintenance, and could be accessed remotely to upload new lighting scenes. The installation was completed by construction specialists Bouygues and jointly commissioned prior to Xmas 2019 in a very short period of just 4 weeks.
