How it all works
Lighting Design Consultants - Design Process
Lighting designer Claire Pendarves carries out all the design schemes and the process for our remote service follows the same principle as when designing for local projects.
Lighting is usually planned in the early stages of design so visiting the site is not generally an issue. As long as we have the architectural plans and have a good line of communication with you, the result will be as detailed and thorough as a local project,

Lighting Design Service - Questions & Answers
What do you supply?
You will receive marked up plans showing all the circuits and a legend showing you suggested lights. Also a moodboard showing you the proposed lighting, and a detailed specification listing all the lighting products proposed.
How long does it take?
Usual turn around is 7-10 working days. Sometimes the lead time will be longer depending on our workload. Please let us know if you are needing the design urgently and we will do our best to slot the job in.
Do you need more?
Ideally it’s good to have details of kitchen and bathroom layouts and an indication of how the rooms will be used. Also details of floor finishes and any pivotal design features. Links to Pinterest boards can be useful as well.
How do I proceed?
Once you decide to go ahead a time will be agreed and we will ask for a 50% payment prior to commencing. The balance is payable on supply of the scheme and any alterations within two weeks are included free of charge.
How much does a lighting design scheme cost?
The cost of the lighting design will depend on the size and intricacy of the project. We will give you quote on sight of the plans.
Prices start at £250 – this would be for a large open plan living area and this may be all you need to be designed. We also design landscape garden lighting but we would need full garden plans and this would be quoted separately.
Sometimes it’s just easier to talk through your requirements so don’t hesitate to ring or drop us an email.
