Anderson Green Role:

  • External Lighting Design
  • Proposal to RIBA Stage 4b
  • Production of Co-ordinated Working Drawings for Below Ground Services
  • Liaison with Statutory Services (IDNO).


The Olympic Legacy Park is the proposed development to be constructed on the former Don Valley Stadium site which is famous for numerous athletes who have competed in major worldwide sporting events.

The former site when complete will comprise a range of entertainment, commercial and education facilities for circa 1500 people on a day to day basis.

Two professional level sporting venues will attract a further 5500 visitors to the site most notably Sheffield Eagles rugby league games.

The scheme involves the design and implementation of external lighting arrangements for both function and decorative illumination of car-parks, a central boulevard walkway, main feature entrance and footpaths and landscaping features with further infrastructure to extend to form an extensive running area through the landscaped grounds and beyond.

Best in Class

To provide an energy efficient and maintenance ‘free’ installation the external lighting is based solely on LED technology and day-to-day automatic lighting controls.

In addition to the automatic lighting controls, column luminaries were provided with LED drivers that utilise Step-Dim technology to allow for seamless switching between two levels of illumination for EVENT and NON-EVENT situations.

Co-ordination of services proved to be a major influence in the routing of below ground services which notably included statutory services of gas, water, LV and HV power, telecoms and fibre provisions to future developments and developments to be constructed during or immediately following the Contract phase.

District heating and the necessary easements enforced by the system provider further restricted the service routes available.
