PAI involved in £6m Llanelly House restoration

Date: 7th April 2014 | Cat: Group News

PAI was involved in the £6m restoration of the 300-year-old Llanelly House in Carmarthenshire, providing lighting control throughout this impressive community and heritage space.

PAI was delighted to have been involved in a prestigious local project to completely restore Llanelly House, a Grade I listed building in the heart of Carmarthenshire’s largest town.

Built in 1714 by Thomas Stepney, MP for Carmarthenshire, Llanelly House is celebrating 300 years of existence, as it opens its doors as one of Wales’ premier heritage visitor attractions.

Approached by local electrical contractor R T Electrics Ltd, PAI was appointed to assist in integrating the specialist lighting control package.

Once on site PAI was responsible for supplying product as mandated by the programme, whilst supporting R T Electrics with installations. Due to the working conditions inherent in a listed building of this age, all contractors faced considerable challenges during the restoration, and PAI worked carefully with R T Electrics and specialist lighting consultant Kate Wilkins Lighting Design to respond transparently to any need for change.

During the testing and commissioning phase, PAI provided additional support to interface the many different lighting protocols. Our testing station ensured all fittings and LED drivers were checked for compatibility with the control system prior to installation. Initial programming was conducted to facilitate system use and test the system further, prior to transition from the restoration to occupation stage.Llanelly House - PAI - Lighting Control

Scene setting was implemented following liaison with Kate Wilkins, before final logic programming into the system and handover of all user documentation. PAI will now assist in ongoing support for Llanelly House, as it develops to be a focal point of the town’s heritage.
