Lights Out at Piccadilly

Monday 16th January 2017 was a historic day for Piccadilly Lights, at 8:30 am the advertising boards and lights were switched off for a full replacement of the screens to commence. This is the longest time, in their 109 year history that the Piccadilly Lights will be switched off. The only previous occurrences were during the London Blitz in the 1940’s, Winston Churchill’s funeral and Princess Diana’s funeral.

Oakmont are delighted to be working on this project with Land Securities, to install the new plant room and the high level BMU, along with structural works, behind the scenes ready for the new curved screen installation.

The iconic London landmark will undergo a refresh and will see the installation of Europe’s largest single digital screen at over 700 square meters, which will be digitally split into sections for advertisers such as Coca Cola and Samsung. The “Curve” will be switched back on in the Autumn of 2017.
