The Straddle - Victoria Quays, Sheffield

The Grade II listed Straddle Building in Sheffield’s Victoria Quays was lit with Surelight Helios II RGB LED Wall Washers - The technicolour LED lighting brings a wonderful new dimension to the restored Sheffield canal basin.

What did the Canal & River Trust want?

The Canal and River Trust were after a fresh new look for the Straddle Warehouse to put it back on the map as one of Sheffield’s celebrated landmarks.

The exterior was redecorated and the Canal and River Trust came to Surelight for a lighting feature for the eastern elevation of the warehouse, facing the canal basin. The idea was to highlight the architectural and engineering qualities of the building but also have impact factor from afar.

How did Surelight achieve this?

Surelight worked closely with the Canal and River Trust to choose the LED lighting and to even programme it with a spectacular light show.

The Helios lighting chosen projects across all five stories of the building utilising the S.T.I.C.K. to control it with a fantastic rainbow coloured light show.

The waterway under the Straddle Building’s famous stilts were lit to amazing effect using Surelight’s Tutis LED floodlights, giving much needed navigation light to the many leisure canal boats that use the quays.

Daniel Hewitt, Technical Director at Surelight, worked closely with the Canal and River Trust; programming the light show into the Surelight LED controller to ensure the Trust got the results they wanted – a fabulous rainbow of coloured light which flows across the face of the building. 

"From our initial demonstrations I knew the building would look amazing when fully lit."
Daniel Hewitt, Technical Director, Surelight
