11.10 – 11.40  Technical Paper 1 – When Compliance can be Non-Compliant
Presented by Anthony Smith, Director, Stainton Lighting Design Services 

Over the last few years we have seen a number of interesting approaches taken to design delivery for lantern retrofit schemes. This paper will look at some of the typical design methodologies being employed for mass lantern replacement programmes, offering a comment on the pro’s and con’s of different approaches. Anthony Smith will also highlight some items which can appear in specifications and could become contractual flash points or create an unachievable set of conditions for the delivery company.

11.40 – 12.10 Technical Paper 2 – Stockton High Street
Presented by Steve Edwards, Specialist Lighting Manager, Stainton Lighting Design Services

Following Stockton Borough Council’s recent investment of £20 million for the recent High Street public realm improvements, Steve Edwards will discuss the strategy, challenges, and design ethos behind the new lighting and electrical infrastructure. The paper includes the design of a bespoke central area feature lighting and the scheme-wide lighting control system.

 Presented by Alan Grant from D W Windsor

Looks at current research regarding correlated colour temperature, the effects on our circadian rhythm and how to mitigate for the perceived (blue light) risks.

13.50 – 14.20  Technical Paper 4 – LED There Be Gas
Presented by Jonathan Skill from AMEY and Chris Angell, Chief Electronics Engineer, Pudsey Diamond

A significant challenge overcome. 30 famous listed sewer lanterns and lighting columns distributed throughout Sheffield in varying stages of decay, with no electrical supply and connected to the gas grid. The residents were fiercely protective of their architectural history and in some cases, had taken charge of the asset themselves. English heritage instructed the original lanterns to be kept wherever possible, without alteration to their exterior. This paper will explore the challenges presented by this project from colour temperature to paint colour and demonstrate how leading edge technology allowed this project to be delivered to the satisfaction of English Heritage and the residents of Sheffield.

14.20 – 14.45 Q and A session
