  • Replacement of the cathedral dome, external lighting of the facade of the cathedral and landscape lighting

Project challenges:

  • Providing required services to the building while maintaining the heritage nature and ascetics of the building
  • Working closely with the architect and client to produce a design that was aesthetically pleasing and complementary to the heritage site
