Design Process

We offer a professional lighting design service and have over twenty years of experience working on a diverse range of domestic projects from barn conversions and individual, architecturally designed one-off houses built in the traditional way or the increasingly more popular, off-site manufactured homes from Germany.

Our Head Designer, Paula Symons, is professionally trained in both lighting and architecture, so has extensive knowledge and understanding of the construction industry together with design flair.

At the initial meeting with the client, which usually takes place at our offices, where examples of lights and lighting effects are on show, we discuss needs, aspirations, lifestyle, energy efficiency and most importantly – budgets.

After collating all the information the designer will produce the lighting portfolio for the client. This document contains:


Lighting Design Layout Drawings


Lighting Circuit Layout Drawings


Lighting Setting Out Drawings


A4 Data sheets for each light specified, showing photos and installation shots of the light fitting


Luminaire quantity and pricing schedule

This document will provide the client and their electrician with all the information that is required to both quote and install. In addition, as explained on the Off Site Manufactured Homes page, we can also provide a full set of electrical design drawings to complete the design process, producing drawings that show the position of sockets, cat 6, TV points, etc.

We do not sell the lights that are specified but we can give guidance to the client or the electrician as to where they can be sourced. This way, we can remain totally impartial. We are not tied to any lighting manufacturer or wholesaler. This is very important as it allows freedom to specify the correct light fittings, from a whole range of different lighting manufacturers, ensuring the lights that are eventually specified are chosen on merit and suitability for the client and project and not for any other reason.

We recognise that good lighting design, with its attention to detail, is only effective if installed correctly. So to maintain high standards, we can take the design stage one step further and offer the complete service from lighting design through to installation, if you require. We are NICEIC domestic & approved electrical contractors, experts in all aspects of electrical installations including full home automation, data network cabling, testing & certification. We strive to provide harmony between the designer and installer to produce quality workmanship with stunning lighting results.
