£5m Perth lighting contract for IKM Consulting
Perth plans to light up
Engineering services group IKM Consulting has secured a contract to help deliver a £5 million project to help transform Perth city centre.
The Perth City of Light Action Plan, launched by Perth and Kinross Council, aims to develop the cultural and night-time economy by lighting key public spaces and landmarks.
The team at Grangemouth-based IKM Consulting will provide the electrical infrastructure design element of the plan and expect to start work on the first project in Norie-Miller Park in March.
IKM is partnering with Lancashire-based architectural lighting supplier LITE which is supplying and installing the feature lighting.
David Taylor, managing director of IKM Consulting said: “We hope that the lighting schemes can be something the people of Perth are proud of.
“This is a growing sector for IKM and we look forward to collaborating with LITE and Perth and Kinross Council to deliver value added lighting solutions.”
The six-year Perth City of Light Action Plan was announced in 2016 and will see buildings and public spaces transformed with colourful lighting.
IKM Consulting’s Building Services team has delivered projects in industrial, commercial and oil and gas facilities throughout the UK, including works to the value of £7m at BP’s RLPG field operation building in Grangemouth, a £1.5m contract for Aspen Healthcare’s new endoscopy unit in Edinburgh and £2m contract at Forth Port’s new Grangemouth warehouse.
