Luceco Illuminates New University of Chester Student Accommodation

The University of Chester has installed Luceco’s flagship backlit LED solutions in its brand-new student accommodation, Sumner House.

The university originated as the first purpose-built teacher training college in the UK and continues to expand with extensive student demand and sites across Chester, Warrington, Shrewsbury and Birkenhead. The 2023 refurbishment of the former hotel in Chester city centre has brought high quality, modern design to the University’s brand new full-board and self-catered student accommodation.

Luceco was delighted to design and supply Contour Suspended lighting in varied sizes in multicolour and black, creating a stylish and striking lighting solution for the communal seating area at Sumner House. Creatively installed in intervals between sculptural wooden slats, with further colourful lights artistically suspended to create a focal point, Sumner House shows the versatility of Luceco LED lighting solutions and the myriad of creative possibilities for installation.

This lighting solution was paired with LuxPanel Extra 600×600 in other areas, soft glowing panels that gently illuminate the space whilst offering an ideal level of light for working.

Andy Whalley from Luceco said: “We were delighted to design and supply the lighting solutions for Sumner House, optimising efficiency while creatively enhancing aesthetics, thus further strengthening our long-standing relationship with the University of Chester. Developing strong working partnerships is integral to our strategic objectives of growth, innovation, and sustainability.’

Nick Dudley from the University of Chester said: “We are thoroughly impressed with the project outcome and the exceptional quality of Luceco products. Luceco worked closely with us to tailor lighting solutions that create the perfect environment for our students. Many millions of pounds are continually invested in the accommodation and resources to enhance the student experience and there is a strong focus on making students feel supported and at home.”
