LIGHTING DESIGN AND CONSULTANCY SERVICES

SOCIALIGHT provides services to projects from its initiation up to completion and handover stages. The typical project would require our services from concept design up to Commissioning and programming stage. services to projects from its initiation up to completion and handover stages. However, it is always possible for us to be engaged even during the construction stage of a project, where more design and management resources will be allocated in order to expedite our work.  

 

Our lighting design and consultancy service is divided into 6 stages, and dovetails with the work stages of other design consultants. 

Our first 3 stages of work is heavily dependent on the work of upstream consultants, namely architects, interior designers, landscape designers among others. Once the design issue and coordination work is completed, our remaining 3 stages is fairly independent of  other consultant's work and will tie in with the construction schedule. For the completion of every stage of work a progress payment applies. 

 

Following our initiation into the project, we will get straight to work with the client and consultants in receiving upstream information and analysis of the project. We engage with key stakeholders to establish design goals and parameters that is required in producing an impactful and comprehensive concept.

  • Understanding of the genius loci. Historical study of the location including traditional and cultural influences.

  • Site topography and important viewpoints.

  • Understanding of the product that the client wishes to achieve and the client's aspirations of the project.

  • Gathering of technical parameters from other stakeholders such as hotel brand standards and green design requirements.

  • Design discussions with key consultants to understand their aspirations and sharing of ideas. 

  • Study of the sunpath and quality if the night sky.
