Sutton Vane Associates – Bridlington Seafront

SWECO appointed Sutton Vane Associates to design a lighting scheme to reimagine a prominent area of Bridlington seafront as part of an ambitious £4m redevelopment project.

Central to the regeneration was the innovative installation of new lighting elements specified by Sutton Vane Associates within the communal areas. This included several completely bespoke illuminated totems created in collaboration with British LED lighting manufacturer, DW Windsor, that formed the centrepiece of the new lighting scheme. The totems are beautifully lit from top to bottom and incorporate colour-changing functionality which can be set for different occasions, such as the celebration of holidays and seasonal events. Controls produced by Mode lighting.

In addition, Sutton Vane Associates added inground linear lighting to enhance the walkways along the seafront. Tall elegant lamposts by Urbis Schreder and Fabrikat and watery patterns of light projected onto the ground by Rosco and Gobo Plus to complete the scene.

Given the site’s coastal location, the lighting needed to be able to withstand highly variable weather conditions. Products were therefore selected to ensure that the lighting is able to cope with the extreme weather that may arise in such an environment.

Welcomed by locals and tourists alike, the much-anticipated regeneration scheme has been part-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Government’s Local Growth Fund, awarded by York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership (YNYER LEP).

Bridlington seafront now has a new lease of life offering a fun and vibrant location during the day, that is both attractive and colourful at night. The scheme won the Value prize category at the Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire & Humber awards.
