White Light Appointed Production Partner at Illuminate

Situated on Levels 4 and 5 of the Science Museum, Illuminate is a progressive new venue designed to both anticipate and surpass the needs of the ever-evolving events industry. The venue will couple state-of-the-art technology with flexible spaces and stunning views of the City, offering both a unique and productive experience for all clients. Due to its long-standing relationship with the Science Museum, along with its reputation for managing similar venues across London, White Light was appointed Production Partner at Illuminate and has designed and installed the technical system within the space.
The installation was overseen by WL’s Project Manager Jason Larcombe. He explains: “We were approached by the Science Museum who came to us with their vision for the space and what they wanted to achieve. They wanted both an intuitive and user-friendly system that can reach the demands of any client; covering everything from the biggest conferences to more intimate events. It was our task to draw on our experience of managing other venues, alongside our technical knowledge, to select a range of products that were bespoke to Illuminate and could fulfil the Science Museum’s vision”.
This included d&b Y-Series amplifiers and speakers, whose portability means they can be moved around the space and offer a solution bespoke to each event. Yamaha QL1 Series desks were chosen for their reliability, portable control and the fact that they are the go-to desk for the majority of technicians and operators. These are run on the Dante network, allowing additional resources to be easily integrated to suit a client’s requirements.
Shure receivers have been chosen due to the fact they are an industry leader in radio microphone transmission. Shure radio microphones were called upon for their extraordinary audio clarity alongside the fact they also sit on the Dante network. JBL has been used for ceiling speakers, ensuring a basic audio coverage across the space that can be zoned to suit varying room formats.
Four 13K Christie projectors were chosen due to the incredible projection they provide, along with the fact that they are incredibly quiet and compact. Panasonic screens offer superior picture quality along with robustness and reliability; something which is vital when they are used on multiple events. Crestron NVX controls all of the lighting and AV set-ups, allowing the space to be managed by one integrated system.
Jason comments: “Everything we’ve chosen for Illuminate is industry-recognised and the type of product you would expect to find in a premium events venue. We also wanted to draw on equipment that would be completely reliable and offer maximum impact. Ultimately, if you draw on products from leading manufacturers, you are guaranteed a certain level of quality – something we want all clients using Illuminate to experience”.
A lot of the equipment used within the space is also a continuation of WL’s relationships with the manufacturers and the company’s commitment to investing in the very latest technology. Jason explains: “A lot of the products match those we already have in our extensive hire inventory, meaning clients will be able to resource an entire production internally; a system which has proved extremely useful for our other managed venues. It also allows Illuminate to remain competitive as a venue as it is completely flexible and can change quite significantly; dependent on the client’s needs”.
Illuminate will open on 1st February 2019 and there has already been significant interest in this game-changing events space. There will also be show-rounds from 4th December for clients to get a sneak peak of the venue.

Ben Lheureux, Head of Catering and Events at the Science Museum Group, comments: “Knowing first-hand of WL’s impressive record of delivering innovative and creative technical solutions in a range of venues, we knew they were the perfect production partner for Illuminate. We are delighted with the technical set-up they have designed and know it will offer our clients an events package that simply isn’t available anywhere else.”
WL Director Richard Wilson adds: “We are very proud of our long-standing relationship with the Science Museum. As two technology-focused organisations, we felt we could very much add value to Illuminate for their incoming venue clients and cannot wait to showcase this brilliant space following the official launch in January 2019”.
Jason concludes: “Illuminate is a prime example of how we are truly able to offer a partnership to venues. We don’t want to simply supply equipment but also our expertise and on-going support to work closely with the client to ensure we provide an exact solution which fulfils their vision. The result is a truly unique package and, as we continue to expand our managed venues portfolio, we look forward to working with a range of venues to offer the production support bespoke to their needs”.


Clearwater Launches the World’s Quickest On-Site Legionella Test

‘HC Rapid25’ reduces the Legionella risk in water systems by detecting the presence of the bacteria in just 25 minutes
Clearwater Technology Ltd, the nationwide provider of water, air and hygiene management has today announced the launch of HC Rapid25, an on-site Legionella testing device that will detect Legionella in just 25 minutes instead of the current period which is typically 10-12 days.
HC Rapid25 will be used in all regular water tank inspections and Legionella risk assessments carried out by Clearwater which include a water tank as part of the assessment.
By using HC Rapid25, Clearwater’s engineers will be able to detect the presence of Legionella in water systems on site as part of their routine visits, which has not traditionally been possible. This will significantly reduce the time it takes to respond to an outbreak, enabling Clearwater to take immediate action to control the risk for its customers. Clearwater’s engineers are experienced in providing remedial actions that restore safety to water systems where Legionella has been detected.
HC Rapid25 comes in a simple swab-test kit and has been validated for use in hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, decorative fountains, hot tubs, pools, sinks, showers, water heaters, fire suppression, ice machines, hot water storage, misters, sprinklers, air washers and humidifiers.
Compliance is a major pain point for any business operating a water system that is susceptible to Legionella contamination. Testing with HC Rapid25 will help businesses to manage that responsibility and increase the ease of governing compliance with official regulations and codes of practice including ACoP L8, ACoP HSG 274 and HTM 04-01.


The Westgrove Group raises £1,500 for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital

The Westgrove Group’s ‘Walk for Alder Hey Day’ has helped to raise £1,500 for the charity.
Across the country, partners and colleagues from the Warrington-headquartered company, one of the largest independent security and cleaning companies, walked 1,500 miles in a day to raise the money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
They money will go towards a new App designed to help children when they first arrive at the hospital.
The Alder Play app is powered by the very latest digital and cognitive advances. It uses gaming and augmented reality to distract patients having procedures in hospital. Within Alder Play, parents will also be able to interact with a chatbot called “Ask Oli” to ask questions about the hospital and what may happen to their child.
Westgrove Brand & Development Director Laurie Barton Wright said: “We look after over 100 sites across the UK and our colleagues walk miles every day, so we thought it would be a good idea to turn the miles they walk in to pounds to help this incredible charity.
“For every mile they walked, we pledged to donate £1 to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
“The event raised an amazing £1,500 and we’re really proud of everyone who took part, especially the team from Spindles Town Square Shopping Centre in Oldham who raised the most money for a single site.”
The Westgrove Group is planning further fundraising events in 2019.
Hayley Thomas, Acting Head of Corporate Fundraising at Alder Hey Children’s Charity, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff who put so much effort into this fundraising initiative!
“It’s such a unique idea and has raised a fantastic amount of money for Alder Hey. The money raised by the Westgrove Group will help us to continue to develop our app, Alder Play, and we are so grateful for this support.”
Alder Hey is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals, caring for 270,000 patients and families every year and treating everything from common illnesses to highly complex and specialist conditions.
The Westgrove Group, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, employs over 1,000 people in shopping centres and airports across the UK working with major landlords and managing agents.
