St Michael and All Angels RC Church
Mercury Consulting Engineers Ltd were appointed initially to provide guidance in respect of the specialist lighting requirements associated with this new church. This appointment was then extended to incorporate the complete mechanical an electrical building engineering services design scheme and on– site compliance inspection for the whole project.
The final scheme comprised of the construction of a new 300 seat church to replace the existing centre of worship together with the redevelopment of the extensive grounds and car park including the full refurbishment of the Presbytery.
In addition to providing full design services for all of the more usual mechanical and electrical services associated with such a building, Mercury Consulting Engineers Ltd prepared and presented the lighting design concepts for the new church developing these as part of the final lighting solution. This element of the design of the scheme was very specialised since it involved the generation of conceptual lighting that would be both aesthetic and functional, finally resulting in the production of engineered drawings and visual rendered images of bespoke luminaires, designed by Mercury Consulting Engineers, to deliver the objectives of the lighting scheme, including the challenging 5m diameter suspended ‘crown of thorns’ chandeliers, as the primary lighting source to the Nave.
