Lighting heritage buildings

Our historic buildings must often compete for space and impact with new and larger developments, especially in town and city centres. Clever lighting allows communities to showcase their building heritage and improve public places. The following CPD materials offer practical and inspirational guidance on using the latest modern technologies to highlight the best of our inherited infrastructure. Most seminars are now available online, but this is not always shown here so, if a seminar is of interest, do click on the link and check.
