With a failed electrical system, the church of St Michael, Camden Town, required complete re-wiring to make it safe and allow the church to realise their ambitions for worship and mission.
Hanslip & Company were approached by the church to act as consultants for the grant-funded project led by Bruce Kirk of Light Perceptions. By providing a conservation-accredited Architect, the rewiring proposals were monitored to reduce their impact on the historic fabric.
The revitalised interior features a customisable lighting system – fully controllable from a tablet computer, but also easily managed from re-programmable light switch panels.
The LED fittings both conserve energy and limit the maintenance burden of a full lighting scheme on the church.
Hidden behind the interior transformation were a series of access improvements introduced by Hanslip & Co. to make maintenance of the high-level areas of the church easier.
