Detailed examples of our work
More of our work
We have worked on a wide variety of projects across a range of industries.
Long Bay Beach Road Extension
Commonwealth Games Velodrome
Coastlands Aquatic Centre
Aquatic Centres demand a special skill set, reinforced by experience, to ensure that all equipment is appropriately selected during design to mitigate the corrosive effects of heated humid chlorinated air and water. Electrical safety is particular concern due to step potential and exposed metal parts. Also, care is required when penetrating the vapour barrier to avoid introducing corrosive elements to the building structure. LDP utilised its extensive experience in this highly specialised field and were responsible for the design and observation of all the electrical services, including power, lighting, security & communications.
Salmiya Park, Kuwait
Lighting design & specification suitable for a variety of sporting codes for this new complex.
Waitakere Stadium, Auckland
LDP were appointed to provide expert advice for the notified Resource Consent hearing, the performance lighting specification, assist with technical tender analyses and review the installation for Resource Consent compliance.
Lowe Walker Stadium (Okara Park), Whangarei
LDP were appointed to review the proposed sports lighting following complaints from residents on glare. Our recommendations were adopted resulting in improved playing and spectator conditions and significant reductions on spill light and glare to the local residents.
Eden Park, Auckland
LDP were appointed by Auckland City Council to review the proposed lighting at Eden Park.
Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland
LDP were engaged to review tenders after the stadium management had received widely varying prices from interested parties. Our assistance provided the stadium management with a solution that met their budget whilst meeting a very tight programme in time for the first NRL game against the Brisbane Broncos. We were subsequently appointed to design the lighting for the adjoining No 2 Athletic stadium (for non-televised use).
Rugby Park, New Plymouth
Following complaints from surrounding residents about the initial lighting installed at the stadium, LDP were asked to review the proposed upgrade of lighting and to provide design advice. This resulted in innovatively extending the height of the lighting head frames on the existing columns in conjunction with utilising the new grandstand that produced a superior performance and virtually eliminated spill light for the nearby residents.
Rugby Stadium, Hamilton
Immediately following on from the successful review of the cricket stadium lighting, we were asked to review the Rugby stadium, which at the time was well advanced in construction. Working with the architect and the lighting supplier, we went through a considerable re-aiming and potential shielding process in order to resolve the issues of low illuminance at the in-goal areas and high spill light to surrounding residential areas. Although a compromise due to the limitations of the construction, the revised design layout has provided a workable solution with improved light at the in-goal areas and reduced spill light to surrounding areas.
Our philosophy of considering every possible option and taking a long-term view to optimise the outcome ensures every design will be safe, long-lasting and energy efficient, both for the end user and the environment. This not only has massive benefits for our clients it is an approach that is well recognised and acknowledged by our industry peers as well.
LDP’s personnel were integral in the electrical and illumination services design, specification and supervision of this world class cycling training & competition facility. Design was to the exacting UCI standard, including TV broadcast lighting considerations and requirements.
