National Memorial Arboretum

Project: Armed Forces Memorial Walkway Lighting at the National Memorial Arboretum

Project Value: £60,000.00

Principal Contractor: Szerelmey Ltd – Restoration & stonework since 1855.

Description: Installation of 36 LED Erco in Ground Grazing Light Wall Washer luminaires & 18 LED Bega Bollards in Graphite.

These superb grazing light wall washer lights accentuate the surface texture of the Memorial facades giving a three dimensional light effect.

The bollards installed to the main walkway and steps effectively illuminate the walkway with a flat beam; the light distribution allows the bollards to be spaced further apart than usual.

The names of 16,000+ service personnel are carved into the stunning 43 meter diameter stone structure on top of an earth mound similar to ancient burial grounds. The Armed Forces Memorial project originally cost around £6 million pounds to build and as part of ongoing improvements lighting has now been added by Andrews Electrical Ltd.

We are proud to have been a small part of this project that honours are fallen personnel so impressively.

“Over the many years that the National Memorial Arboretum has used the services of Andrews Electrical the service we have received has always been professional and very personal.

All those connected with the business are always friendly and helpful and nothing is an issue.

Contact using email or phone is always promptly replied to and the jobs are dealt with promptly, sometimes at very short notice and sometimes in unsociable hours.

We will happily continue to use the services of Andrews Electrical as I know I will get a quality service and that all the work is safe and meets current legislation.

Safety and quality are important factors in ensuring our staff and volunteers can operate without any fear of dangers in the work place.”
