Behind the scenes at the RWA

GDS recently worked with the RWA (Royal West of England Academy) to support their lighting upgrade during their phased capital works.


Located in a spectacular Grade II* listed building in the heart of the city, the RWA is the UK’s only regional Royal Academy of Art and one of only five in total, alongside those in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and London.

The lighting design had to be energy efficient but also offer great flexibility in adjusting the LUX levels for individual paintings. The RWA is a multi-use venue, offering a diverse range of exhibitions, corporate events, community workshops and private viewings throughout the year.
