Little Haven - South Shields

LED Supplier:Philips
Construction partner:Balfour Beatty
Client:South Tyneside Council
Products:ColorBlast, ColorGraze, DecoScene, Milewide LED

Project Overview

As the previous coastal defences at Littlehaven reached the end of their serviceable life, South Tyneside Council saw an opportunity to not only create a new and more effective coastal defence but also to improve facilities for local residents and visitors.
From the early stages of the project a decision was taken to make use of the latest LED lighting technologies to take advantage of their controllability, energy efficiency and long life.
The colour-changing lighting effects are provided by ColorBlast fittings attached to the lighting columns.
When using the Pharos control system the Council can create lighting scenes to complement particular events or times of the year, or simply to bring the area to life with a pre-defined colour changing sequence.
