Kummler+Matter EVT prepares the construction and structural engineering plans and develops overall lighting concepts as required.


The statics and illuminating power are calculated and permits are obtained. In cooperation with the local safety authorities, traffic management is organised and the Christmas lights and cable support structures are built.


On the operational level, the cable support structures are installed and the lighting is mounted and connected to the power. Depending on the preparatory work completed in previous years, for example, the setting of permanent wall anchors or fixed cable support structures that remain in place over the year, this work step may be limited to hanging the lighting and connecting it to the grid.


Existing cable support structures are checked, visual inspections and expert reports guarantee smooth commissioning.


In addition to dismantling work, Kummler+Matter EVT also takes care of the logistics and, if desired, the storage of Christmas lights during the rest of the year. Kummler+Matter EVT provides a call-out service for the Christmas period.
