IKM Consulting has landed a contract to help deliver a £5 million public sector project to “transform” Perth city centre.

The Grangemouth-headquartered engineering services firm will deliver the electrical infrastructure design element of the Perth City of Light Action Plan, which has been launched by Perth and Kinross Council. The six-year plan was announced last year and will see public spaces and landmarks transformed with colourful lighting. The aim is to boost the city’s cultural and night-time economy.

IKM expects to start on the first project in Norie-Miller Park in March 2018. LITE Ltd will be responsible for the supply and installation of the feature lighting.

David Taylor, managing director of IKM Consulting said, “IKM is thrilled to be a part of the Perth City of Light Action Plan and we are pleased to be partnering with LITE Ltd for this significant project. We hope that the lighting schemes can be something the people of Perth are proud of. This is a growing sector for IKM and we look forward to collaborating with LITE Ltd and Perth and Kinross Council to deliver value added lighting solutions.”
