Residential Lighting Design Process


1. Brief Development


Our lighting designers can meet you on-site or at our showroom in Manchester or at our offices in London. We need to fully understand how your space will be used and whether you have an idea of the lighting systems you will need before we can develop a complete brief. Our lighting designers will draw from you what your lighting aspirations are then offer advice on fittings, lighting designs & building regulation compliance. Your initial meeting may also involve discussions about specific light fittings, bespoke lighting, lighting control and home automation, and a complete run through of the schedule and process involved. It is our role to offer you choice and clarity so you know exactly what will be happening, who will be involved and what part we will play in your development or refurbishment.

2. Site Visit


It is important for our lighting designers to understand the built environment they will be designing for; therefore, in most cases, we will arrange for a site visit where they will be able to take notes, photos and sketches of the space(s).

3. Lighting Design & Plans


The first designs that our lighting designers will produce for you will be two-dimensional plans of the lighting for your space(s) using AutoCAD. These will represent where your lighting should be placed and what will be involved in your new lighting system. On approval of these drawings we can, on your instruction, produce further visual representations of the lighting designs or proceed with the project.

4. Regulations


We make sure that all our fittings comply with the Part L section of your building regulations and provide you with all the information you’ll need to give to your building control officer. Discussions on the subject of compliance will start in our very first meeting where we gather information from you or your architects and we are there every step of the way with you to ensure that any questions you or your building control officer have are answered clearly and swiftly.

5. Presentation


Once our lighting designers have completed their designs and initial fitting selections we will develop a presentation to show you exactly what your lighting design will look like. The presentation will involve our 2D drawings, options of different lighting products, and photographs from other projects with similar designs and products. We can also provide you with a 3D visualisation of your project or bespoke fitting. The presentation will sent via email and you will also be invited to our Manchester design studio and showroom for this presentation where we will offer you advice on potential cost savings and fittings from a huge range of lighting manufacturers. Our goal is to achieve your lighting aspirations and therefore we do all we can to show you the potential end results of our work, and present you with all the options for you to make an informed decision on both budget and design.

6. Quotation and Specification


A detailed quotation and specification document will be drawn up listing product type, lamp type, drivers and transformers. Installation guides will also be provided within the specification to help the contractors on site.

7. Loading Schedule


A loading schedule will be produced which details circuits, wattage per circuit, lamp type and dimming protocols. This will be given to your electrician and also if you are installing any lighting control this will be essential.

8. Project Management


If you have your own electrical engineers to install our lighting designs, we will gladly provide them with all the relevant information they need to turn our lighting designers visions into project reality. This will include: detailed specifications, circuit plans, detailed notes, a mood board where required, and our support throughout the installation where it is needed. If you do not have your own electrical engineers we will be able to recommend a trusted firm that we have relied upon for previous projects. As an end-to-end lighting consultancy, design and supply firm we also offer a project management service where we take responsibility for coordinating the various professionals on the project that will be involved in the lighting design process.

9. Order Management


When the time comes to place the order, our experienced sales team will assist with any technical questions to ensure a smooth delivery and installation. When the order arrives at our warehouse, each product will be marked up by circuit number and room by room thus assisting the electrician on site.

10. Installation


Asco lights works with a number of partners from electrical contractors to home automation specialists throughout the UK and abroad. It is strongly advised to appoint an approved electrician and we can recommend our partners. If you choose to appoint your contractors, this is no problem, we will work hand in hand and provide technical information when needed.
