ChapmanBDSP's head of lighting to speak at industry summit

Theo Paradise-Hirst has been confirmed as a guest speaker at this year's Professional Lighting Summit.

ChapmanBDSP's head of lighting will tell an audience how the building services and environmental consultancy provided cutting-edge solutions for the new Design Museum in London.

The talk, titled inspiring atmospheres-designing light for the new Design Museum, will reveal how the ChapmanBDSP team explored and developed lighting solutions to enhance the well-known landmark.

It will also argue that exemplary interior lighting should always be a core consideration for projects.

As MEP, environmental and lighting consultant on the £83m museum redevelopment, which opened last year, ChapmanBDSP successfully delivered a future-proofed and flexible building and designed a lighting solution for the building’s vast exhibition spaces.

Technically the most challenging aspect of ChapmanBDSP's work was finding a lighting and environmental solution for the huge exhibition space on the ground floor.


Lighting to extenuate the iconic parabolic roof remains mostly hidden from view, as does the advanced system that helped achieve a controlled internal environment for features and displays.

A near-silent temperature control solution under the ground-floor gallery allowed the site to conform to the latest environmental regulations.

The conference, which is run by the Institute of Lighting Professionals, brings together hundreds of designers and engineers from across the globe, takes place on June 13th and 14th at The Oxford Belfry, near Oxford.
