Design Service


At The Studio, our team of professional lighting designers, who benefit from over 20 years of experience and lighting knowledge, can provide a bespoke lighting design for your project. To ensure you receive the highest level of service and expert advice, we work directly with you and also with architects, interior designers, landscape designers and more.

As well as producing simple lux level calculations, with their passion and flair for producing creative and effective lighting solutions, our design team is equipped to propose and present a full lighting solution for your project, including 3D visuals of the space.

The Studio offers three levels of design service, from a free of charge concept presentation to a chargeable CAD service which extends to full working drawings covering the lighting scheme.  The level of service you require will depend on the complexity of your project.  The design team at thestudio@collingwoodgroup.com is happy to discuss this with you.

Level 1

Design Service Level one is free of charge and includes a basic 2D lighting plot carried out in Dialux and accompanied by simple light calculations and details of the fittings specified. This is accompanied by a quotation.

Level 2

The second level of service provided by The Studio is also free of charge and encompasses the design of a complete lighting concept for your project.  The process begins with either a meeting or phone call, as appropriate, with the client to determine the brief, understand timescales and discuss initial lighting ideas.  Following this consultation, the design team will propose next steps in terms of the concept presentation.

The presentation will usually include 3D renders of key areas of the project to illustrate the designer’s proposals. From this we can provide an initial quotation as cost guidance.

Designers will undertake up to two revisions to the initial lighting scheme, following client’s comments or alterations to the design of the space, before they issue a final concept presentation with corresponding quotation.

Level 3

The third level of service The Studio provides is more complex and is chargeable.  It involves the development of the approved lighting concept into a full lighting brief and includes:

Design meetings with the client, architect and/or other consultants, as considered necessary by the design team, to discuss design and installation.

- Preparation of further 3D renders where applicable to illustrate aspects of the design.
- Preparation of Autocad plans detailing fitting types, positions and suggested circuiting.
- Advise on control options.
- Circuit schedules.
- One revision may be carried out at this stage free of charge. Further revisions will be chargeable.
- Provision of final up to date quotation.
