In the night garden

Birmingham Botanical Gardens, an independent charity, is one of the city’s leading visitor attractions, bringing in up to 250,000 visitors a year. And with grade II listed buildings 15 acres of grounds, that meant a lot of lighting. To improve efficiency and cut operating costs, BBG decided to switch from halogen and fluorescent tubes to LED luminaires. EcolightingUK comprehensively upgraded indoor and outside areas including external terraces, the pavilion, bandstand and car park. Colour changing lights were also installed for future events and to add ambiance for this park on one edge of the Black Country.
