Stage Electrics installs LED lighting at Kings Place


Stage Electrics has supplied, installed and commissioned new LED lighting to replace the existing house lighting at Kings Place, London.

Originally opened in 2008, Kings Place is a multi-purpose venue including a concert hall as well as the home to The Guardian and The Observer newspapers. Stage Electrics were contracted by Paul Russell, technical project manager for Kings Place, to replace the lighting in Hall 1 which is the main concert hall, a system originally installed by sister company Northern Light.

The new feature Lighting in addition to general auditorium lighting provides illumination, with full colour mixing, of the acoustic void around the upper walls of the auditorium as well as the stage and seating areas. This additional feature allows the venue to offer corporate clients the ability to customise the room in their corporate colours something the venue wanted to offer to its increasing number of corporate customers as well as update their existing offering to performing artists. The final installation included fixtures from dLED Technologies and Chauvet with control and power distribution provided by ETC.

“As with any existing building, access to existing containment systems was difficult. However, to facilitate the new LED lighting specifically for the acoustic void, we had to discreetly install additional control wiring for 56 new fixtures,” says Michael Percy. “This is made more difficult because the auditorium structure at Kings place is entirely independent of the rest of the building so it’s effectivity a room within room with a significant air gap between for acoustic purposes, finding a suitable route was challenging as well as maintaining the acoustic separation however we achieved this without disrupting the existing infrastructure.”

The installation was completed to a tight deadline with the on-site team ensuring no damage was caused to the beautiful interior woodwork during the installation process.
The building’s original architect Dixon Jones and building developer Peter Millican worked with Paul Russel and Stage Electrics to make sure that his vision for the building was maintained while making the space more appealing to prospective clients.
