Pitcher & Piano is a chain of high street bars owned and operated by Marstons Taverns Plc. Their Nottingham site was converted from a church to a very successful bar and restaurant.

Lietcorp’s lighting designers worked closely with the client to complete this full pub lighting fixtures refit without loss of ambience or compromise to the company’s strong brand character. We also supported and trained the client’s preferred electrical installer.

The pub lighting fixtures installed highlight the building’s character, improves energy efficiency and delivers long-term financial savings.

Lietcorp’s brief was to replace the existing halogen and tungsten pub lighting fixtures with an LED lighting solution. The aim was to maintain the ambience while achieving a significant reduction in energy, bulb and facilities management costs.
