Review and analysis of plans

The first phase begins with a review of the architectural plans to determine how the space will be used and identify any architectural features that would benefit from specialty lighting effects. Through careful analysis of the plan we map out the functional, accent and decorative lighting layers.

Meetings with the client (in-person or virtual) are important so we can get a sense of preferences and aversions, visual concerns, lighting goals for the project and other details that may be relevant. Review of colors, finishes and furniture plans are helpful to ensure appropriate placement of fixtures and to provide appropriate light levels and effects in key areas.

A lighting plan is created

Detailed drawings of the lighting plan are provided, which include a symbols legend, switch leg and dimmer indications, construction notes and other details specific to the project. In addition, a compilation of the architectural lighting specification cut sheets is part of the submittal package.

Implementation of the lighting design

During construction of your project, site visits and periodic consultations are required for us in order to be current on existing structural details. This also gives us the opportunity to address any framing or other issues that may impact the lighting design.

From concept to completion

Our lighting design projects are implemented in phases and our team is with you every step of the way until your project is completed and your expectations have been exceeded!
Phase 1 – Lighting plan, purchase of rough-in lighting, initial walk through.
Phase 2 – Field measure for architectural linear fixtures, analysis of cabinetry shop drawings and cabinet lighting specifications, analysis of light color with samples of materials and swatches, consult with A/V home control system installer. Phase 2 order includes remote drivers/transformers for low voltage lighting.
Phase 3 – Supply finish trims for recessed lights, supply cabinetry lighting, consult with interior designer on decorative lighting.

The grand finale

At this stage of your project we review all details that may need light source or lens modifications, aiming or other adjustments, after the interior furnishings and art are in place. These adjustments are thought of as “tweaking” to make sure that all of the lighting is doing its job correctly and the design intent is achieved.
