Project Overview

Colourful LED lighting enhances the fantastic architectural design of WSP Place in Edmonton, Alberta. The building is gaining notice thanks to SGi’s LED Neon lights. The lights provide a stunning impact and are also a high-end solution for façade lighting.

Because of it’s northern location, Edmonton’s winters are darker and longer. As a result, the city’s downtown core is installing LED neon lights to provide brightness in an otherwise somber landscape. WSP Place, with its new renovation and updated design, required reliable lights that would make a big statement. The dynamic elements of the façade also needed a lighting solution that was customizable as well as resistant to the extreme hot and cold of the region. SGi’s colour changing Round Top LED Neon light was selected for its rugged strength and bright illumination.

SGi worked closely with the project’s contractors on a detailed lighting plan that would meet the clients needs. Because SGi’s LED Neon lights are available in customizable lengths, each section of light was specially cut to fit the unique geometric shapes in the building facade. This resulted in a stunning and continuous display of illumination with no breaks or gaps in the lighting.

The final lighting plan boasted over 150 colour control points and thousands of feet of light. Each lighting section also went through a rigorous testing process prior to shipping, to ensure SGi’s quality standard as a long lasting lighting solution.

SGi Recommendations

We recommended our RGB Round Top LED Neon light. These lights are the beautiful, yet rugged, solution our client was looking for. With each section customized to fit the geometric shapes in the facade, we were able to achieve a stunning and continuous display of illumination, with no breaks or gaps in the lighting.
