Aberdeen sees the light with city centre masterplan
February 5 2018
Aberdeen in Colour, A City Centre Masterplan, was drawn up by creative lighting consultancy Steensen Varming alongside urban designers McGregor Coxall, with a view to spending £6.5m over the next five years showing key locations such as Union Street, the River Dee and St Nicholas Kirk in a new light.
Intended to improve after hours safety as well as new opportunities for public art and events the new initiative will overhaul the ‘generally poor’ standard of current lighting provision to improve visual wayfinding and give the city a proper nighttime presence.
The latest smart lighting technology will be utilized throughout the project to meet public demand for ‘responsive’ and ‘surprisiing’ solutions.
Business cases will now be developed to prove the long-term viability of each installation.
