Project Location


Products Used

Forty brand new Bl1 tower lights.

We worked alongside our customer, the Rugby Football Union, to deliver a high class installation in line with the designers’ and architects’ plans.

There were strict deadlines for completion of works and ongoing servicing of equipment whilst on hire.

The collaboration of working alongside multiple stakeholders to ensure an exacting solution to meet the needs of all on this project was very important. Our flexible approach to the ongoing demands of such a large scale and prestigious event contributed to the successful delivery of the project, and the correct products were supplied to ensure the most appropriate practical solution was delivered.

Our Bl1 tower lights were used for lighting public areas on all match days at the iconic Twickenham Stadium, including the World Cup Final itself.

In addition to the Brightlights specific products used, we also provided various trakway, barriers and fencing solutions, a Variable Message Sign, and Wheelchair Loading Ramps through our specialist trakway and barriers division, Eve and our parent company, A-Plant.
