Midland Railway Square Redevelopment

To keep the very traditional and iconic heritage Midland Railway Workshop alive, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) became involved to revitalise the 131 Year Old Precinct. This First Stage Redevelopment Project opened on ANZAC Day 2017.

Under the guidance of the MRA, & collaboratively designed by Place Laboratory (Landscape Architects) and ETC (Lighting Designers and Electrical Consultants), Light Application contributed to turn their illumination visions into a beautiful and vibrant reality with Electrical Contractors and Installers, Shamrock Electrical.

Utilising a Custom built Pharos DMX and ACN/Dynalite Head End Lighting Control, we became capable of enabling all of the DALI Dimmable Functional Luminaires, Aesthetic Luminaires, Artwork Lighting, Gobo Projectors (Martin EXT 500MG), Linear Flexible Lighting System (pureLED Addressable Flextube), and Water Misters to dynamically automate the entire area.

The reutilised and replicated existing Railway Lines, has recessed Linear Addressable Flextube to accent Water Misters portraying the history of Steam Locomotives moving along the tracks & Arrayed Gobo Projectors providing rotating automated images along the grounds also accentuating the motion.

Stuart Green & his team at Big Spoon Art Services were selected to commission two artworks as part of the Midland Rail yard redevelopment, both works themes were the steel & metal workshops historically based in & around the rail yards. As both works have very fine, intricate details, simple white lighting was used on both to subtly illuminate each piece at night – pureLED FlexTube centrally mounted on the “Window” artwork & pureLED Micro Spots were used to internally illuminate each of the four “Lanterns”.

Light Application’s customer service has been excellent to the MRA, often working to short time frames to deliver complex solutions in a demanding public open space environment. They have remained responsive and engaged as our lighting capacity and designs have evolved over time to suit different themes and events.

Adam has always been very reliable, professional, enthusiastic and most importantly passionate in making our lighting patterns and designs happen to a high standard, including testing sessions in the rain and getting on roofs to make things happen– couldn’t recommend him enough. Adam has also been responsive to our needs for special programming and custom site theming to work in with different events.
