Lighting Design Service


1. Site Visits

Unless otherwise stated all estimates include one site visit.  Should further visits be requested, these will be carried out subject to an additional charge.


2. Estimates

An estimate is given based on reasonable assumptions about the complexity of the work and hence the design time involved.  Every effort will be made to keep to the estimate, however, should circumstances prove materially different, a revised estimate will be issued.


3. Information from the Client

The Client will need to supply:
a. Floor plan of the building(s) involved.
b. Proposed use of the rooms/areas (from which target levels of illumination can be set).
c. Energy efficiency target for lighting (if this is a consideration).
d. Indicative lighting budget for the area(s) concerned.


4. Completion

The Design task is complete once the Design work has been supplied to the Client. This will normally include:
a. Plan(s) marked with the lighting points and switch positions.
b. Detailed lighting specification.
c. Cost schedule of light fittings.


A draft will be sent for the Client’s approval and/or alternations prior to issue of the final Design. A reasonable number of copies of the Design work will be supplied.

Should revisions be requested subsequently, these will each be subject to an additional charge. The cost schedule is correct at the time of issue, but should be treated as an estimate only, since lighting manufacturers can alter their prices and discount rates at any time.


5. Procurement

Lampholder Lighting Design is pleased to arrange procurement of all or any items on the lighting specification, either on behalf of the Client or their nominated electrical contractor. Please note that if light fittings are purchased in smaller quantities than on the schedule, unit prices may be higher than stated.


6. VAT
will be added at 20% to all charges.


7. Payment Terms

An invoice for our design service will be issued on Completion. Should the period between submission of the draft Design and the Client’s further instructions to proceed to the final Design exceed one month, an interim invoice may be issued one month after submission of the draft.

Payment is due within 30 days of the date of invoice, by cheque or BACS transfer (please ask for our bank details). Cheques should be made payable to Lampholder 2000 Ltd. Regrettably we cannot accept payment by credit or debit card.
