In 2013, Redcar Beacon opened its doors as part of a £75m redevelopment of the Redcar seafront. Offering visitors the chance to enjoy a 360-degree view, the vertical pier is the town’s tallest structure standing at 80ft high.
Redcar Beacon is spread over seven floors, housing office space, a radio station, a café, and the viewing platform, and is a prominent structure in the light installation running the entire length of the seafront.
In 2019, as part of further regeneration works, Redcar and Cleveland Council wanted to replace outdated fittings and reintroduce colourful, engaging lighting effects. Lighting Solutions Specialists, LITE Architectural Lighting worked with the local authority to propose a low maintenance system that could be controlled remotely and would welcome visitors to the area.
A Pharos LPC 4 controller is responsible for controlling the 110 fittings used for the install. The LPC family allows individually controllable and independently running timelines and scenes, which has proven the ideal solution for the chosen dynamic scheme.
