Architects are often asked to specify lighting products in the early stages of the design especially architectural fittings that are required to be installed at first fix. Here at Asco Lights our lighting design team can work alongside the architects to help them find the best products and lighting solutions for their project.
At Asco Lights we organise meetings with architects where we talk through the CAD plans, in order to situate the best possible lighting solutions in the most effective areas at a cost effective price. We then create our own CAD drawing for the Architect to have a visual of where lighting solutions are being placed.
Along with this we produce specifications for the architect to refer to which links a specific LED product with an area on the drawings so they can see what lights are being placed in which rooms. Karl Seddon, from Howard & Seddon Architects, is an architect we have worked with in order to produce such amazing LED outcomes for clients.
Interior designers often seek out our design team for help and advice on architectural and decorative fittings for their projects. We can help by offering our industry expertise on solutions and products that would work in harmony with their scheme.
Interior designers often have a clear idea of what decorative lighting they would like to specify and with this in mind, our designers can point them in the right direction to find the ideal pieces.
We have worked with many interior designers, such as Alisa Bowen from Inside Studio LTD. We used her ideas of what she wanted the outcome of her project to look like and from this we were able to source the most beautiful and cost effective LED solutions to enhance her project and over exceed expectations.
Property developers are 100% focused on making their project as valuable and as successful as possible. They will often come to Asco Lights to partner up in the development of a new property, ensuring they have the highest quality products whilst still sticking within their budget.
Our team of lighting designers can advise on solutions and products to best suit the project and will help throughout the development with communication and advice to all on site. We have worked with Property Developers in the past, such as Altin Homes, where we consulted with Usif, in order to conduct a cost effective lighting plan that will ensure the most luxurious lighting solutions were sourced at a budget.
The effect that lighting has on a brand new property is amazing. It can completely transform a build and this is why it was so important for us to do this effectively. By working with our skilled design team property developers can increase property value and rental yields with a bespoke finish and intelligent lighting design.
Our Lighting design team often works alongside Home automation companies on the lighting control aspect of a project as these two areas of a project go hand in hand. Our team are always on hand to work alongside electrical contractors to provide specifications and installation guides or give direct instructions to ensure the products are installed correctly providing the best results.
One home automation company in particular that we worked with was Synergy AV, where we met with John Martin to conduct effective lighting control system. It is always a brilliant synergy working with John Martin, our ideas go hand in hand and it is easy to conduct such an effect LED lighting solution for projects.
John Martin is always satisfied with our solutions and loves working with us as we have a real understanding for lighting control and home automation. We have expert knowledge on how lighting design can completely transform residential and commercial projects. After speaking to John he told us he was amazed by our “ability to source luxury lighting solutions so quick and at a cost effective price”.
Synergy AV were impressed with how innovative our designs were, the flawless dimming of our products and also the fact we ensure our products work efficiently before handing them over to the client.

When it comes to installation, there are so many different products in the marketplace that sometimes installation can be a completely different process to what the electrical contractor is used to.
Our design team are always on hand to work alongside electrical contractors to provide specifications and installation guides or give direct instructions to ensure the products are installed correctly providing the best results.
Here at Asco we believe that without the correct installation no design can be truly complete. As the designers this provides us with a responsibility to overlook the installation process and make sure it is completed to the highest standard.
