During the construction phase, CEL have deployed compliant CAA aviation lighting complete with critical 3 hour UPS battery backup to offer temporary aviation safeguarding.

Medium Intensity lighting was fitted to all sides of the building to create 360 omnidirectional compliant lighting. CEL Aviation Lights are LED-based offering long lifetime and reliability. All red aviation lights can be controlled and monitored by the obstruction light controllers and linked in the building management system for remote monitoring.
