Lighting Design Fees
How much does it cost?
I work purely as a lighting consultant and produce fully transparent details so you or your electrical contractor can purchase the lights on the best terms available.
Lighting design fees vary according to the project in hand and each job will be quoted once I see the PDF plans. To give you an idea, average fees range between £300 – £500 plus VAT but of course there are larger projects that incorporate gyms, swimming pools, media rooms etc which can increase the amount of work considerably, so each design is quoted individually.
I am now also offering a tiered service starting from £85 plus VAT for a one hour consultation over the phone (client to take any relevant notes) as well as an overall guide design which does not include the marked up plan. This will be priced according to the size of the property.
Drawing up approximate plans to help illustrate positions of lights – when architectural plans are not available – are charged based upon the hourly rate of £50 plus VAT per hour. Please note that these will be for lighting design purposes only and will be based on any hand drawn plans and measurements being supplied.
Alterations to submitted plans and specifications (beyond the 2 week period after submission) will be based on an hourly charge and will be quoted before work is commenced (minimum 0.5 hr).
I also offer a lighting design service for landscape and garden lighting and fees will be quoted for each project once I’ve received plans and designs from the garden designer or landscape architect. At this stage it helps me to know more about the surrounding area and how the lighting will impact any neighbours and how it will affect privacy of the final project.
