Our Design Services benefit from experience in architecture and interior design.
Our creative and flexible approach and careful attention to detail brings imaginative proposals to realisation through skilful and professional design administration and technical know-how.
By arrangement, we visit your premises to discuss and assess your lighting requirements
Based on this information, we prepare a proposal with suggestions, recommendations and a detailed quotation for the supply of equipment. If required we shall prepare drawings to assist the installer.
If architect's or designer's drawings are available, these will assist us in offering advice in the absence of a site visit.
The cost for the Advisory Service is limited to an hourly charge for site visits and appointments*.[Minimum charge one hour for each visit]
Any drawings will be charged on a time basis.
Other costs for preparing the proposals are recovered through the supply of specified equipment.
Although we do not install we are able to suggest suitable contractors to undertake the work.
Fee based consultancy
Our consultancy service is designed with flexibility in mind to suit individual client requirements.
The service is initiated by an introductory meeting to assess the project and define the scope of works. The project is formalised by agreement and is divided into fee stages :-
Stage 1: Creative planning and presentation of ideas
The stages are organised to follow a comprehensive and logical sequence. However stages may be omitted - for example a survey may not be required if accurate information already exists.
The client is offered an option at the end of each stage to proceed to the next level.
Specifications are prepared by Chelsea Lighting Design for the purpose of procurement by the client or appointed representatives.
