Ad Hoc Lighting Design Services

Award Winning Light Design Specialists
Our Complete Home Lighting Design Service

Your project is unique and what you want to achieve with your lighting design is individual to you. To help achieve this perfect design we have split our service into four stages:

1. Lighting Design

We meet with you and discuss your project in detail, what you like, don’t like, what you hope to achieve with your lighting. We make suggestions, present ideas and show samples. We then prepare conceptual lighting plans and initial directions for the specification.

2. Lighting Specification

We produce a full lighting specification including lighting design plan, lighting controls plan and lighting specification with full budget breakdown. This will be compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations and will have all the information you need to get an accurate quotation from electrical contractors and lighting controls suppliers.

Home Lighting Design Bedfordshire

We prepare a detailed and lamp and luminaire schedule with costs for supply of lights and fittings. We will also prepare and supply full size drawings for your electrician and builder. We usually come to you for meetings or to your architect or main contractor, however, once the main structure is in place, at least one meeting on site is very important. Some meetings can be held “virtually” by Skype or Zoom or by telephone if that is more convenient.

Home Lighting Installation Management - Electrician Wiring a Light

3. Installation Management

  • We attend site for an Electrical Contractor’s briefing to handle any technical or design questions prior to the start of the first fix electrics.
  • Attend site for lighting first fix electrics checks.
  • Attend site for second fix electrics checks to ensure that works are moving on smoothly and to answer any queries face-to-face that may result during this phase.
  • Make paperwork revisions to the lighting design and specification, as necessary. Answer technical or design queries that arise during this phase.

4. Commissioning & Delivery

  • Attend site to supervise the aiming of any adjustable lights, assist with the hanging lengths of pendants, dress chandeliers, etc.
  • Carry out an inspection of the lighting installation to prepare a snagging list.
  • Assist in the initial lighting controls scene setting.
  • Attend site to check all snagging items are rectified.
  • Produce an Operations and Maintenance (O and M) Manual.

Every project that we have undertaken is as unique as our clients. We provide a quotation that is based on the size and complexity of your project so we need to start with as much information as possible. Please e-mail any plans and elevations, along with any cross sections that you may have. For refurbishments, where there are no scale plans available, you can send us photos or videos and (very) rough sketches that just show us the room dimensions. You might be able to add these to a copy of your Estate Agent’s floor plan if one is available.

What Sam delivered more than paid off. Pound for pound it was the best value in our project. Sam encouraged us to be more daring with design, while still in keeping with the property, than we would have been without her.
