An exciting new chapter for CBG Consultants & Light Perceptions!
We are excited to announce that we have established a new lighting consultancy division with the acquisition of Light Perceptions Ltd, providers of specialist lighting design services for more than 20 years. Light Perceptions’ experience covers landmark ecclesiastical and historic sites, private estates, museums and galleries, and other public buildings. Bruce Kirk, Founder of Light Perceptions, has joined the CBG Board.
CBG’s Managing Director Andy Payne said: “Through the CBG Light Perceptions division, we will be able to offer bespoke lighting design and project management services. This is fantastic news for our whole team, for our clients, and for others we collaborate with.”
Director Bruce Kirk added: “With a growing focus on sustainability in all stages of the construction lifecycle, the combination of Light Perceptions’ expertise and CBG’s resources means we can offer in-house, a comprehensive low carbon managed lighting and MEP solution across all projects.”
We look forward to this new era and the opportunities it will bring for our clients, employees, and everyone we work with.
A private co-educational school in the heart of Reading, Crosfields uses a two-storey curved structure, which protects trees on the site, creates solar shading, and utilises cross-laminated timber to substantially reduce embodied carbon.
CBG Consultants were engaged to design an energy-efficient Senior School Building, that includes a Café, Performance Space, Teaching classrooms, Library, Welfare Hub, and Academic resources.
In collaboration with David Miller Architects, CBG provided the M&E, Lighting, Building physics, BIM aspects and RIBA Stage 4C Design Information. Sustainable solutions included a brise soleil façade to help reduce overheating during the summer months and 47m² of photovoltaic panes on the roof to generate electricity.
