On this project Lighting Design & Technology were both the base-build and the exhibition lighting designers for all public spaces. These varied between large grand Victorian spaces to more modern school rooms and conference spaces.

The base-build lighting provided the lighting for the grand Entrance Hall and all public corridors, lift lobbies and staircases. Also the central control system that would be used by the future exhibition fit-out lighting system. As LD&T also designed all the exhibition lighting systems there was complete integration of the lighting throughout the building.

The six main galleries all differed in both architecture and content. The rooms varied from high daylit historic spaces on the ground floor, to ones open to the rafters on the second floor to a large circular basement space. The lighting positions and technology varied appropriately but a common family of luminaires were used for the adjustable display lighting to allow simple stocking of spares and an interchangeable array of attachments and filters.
