Project Description

Nub provide a bespoke architectural lighting package Plymouth College of Art’s stunning Palace Court site for it’s launch event in Plymouth City Centre.

Plymouth College of Art is an independent art college. Founded in 1856, the college has a goal of providing a distinctive, innovative and supportive learning community in contemporary arts practice. In September of 2015, the college acquired a new site. Palace Court is located between their main campus and the historic barbican.

The building has been refurbished to create spaces designed to meet the needs of modern art, design and media students. Palace Court is the first dedicated Extended Diploma campus at an art school in the South West.

The Brief

The formal opening ceremony for this new building was to be carried out by the Lord Mayor of Plymouth. The college contacted Nub to provide lighting for this prestigious event.

We met with the college’s events team on site to discuss the event and the team’s vision. From this meeting, it was clear that the brief was to enhance the already stunning visuals of the newly refurbished site.

The events team’s aim was to create an attractive vista which naturally led visitors towards the building’s main entrance, all whilst subtly highlighting the texture and fabric of the building.

The Solution

To deliver on the colleges requirements, Nub provided a combination of ruggedised festoon lighting and outdoor IP rated LED uplighters. We identified the most suitable locations for the equipment and the optimal schedule for installation in collaboration with the college’s team.

By providing careful planning and strong management, the equipment was installed in the grounds of Palace Court in only a couple of hours. All systems were controlled from a lighting desk programmed by one of Nub’s skilled designers. We supplied a technician to be on hand throughout the event and ensured everything ran according to plan.

Nub delivered a high quality architectural lighting system, safely, on budget and on time. This high quality equipment accentuated the appearance of the buildings and augmented the experience for guests at the event.
