Lighting Consultancy

Our years of experience and close links with all of the lighting system manufacturers ensure that you are always being offered the best solution for your needs.

 

The design of the lighting system for a TV studio is not a subject that excites many broadcast engineers. Furthermore it is not a system that needs upgrading very often and therefore it is possible that the clients own engineers will not have the up to date knowledge for lighting systems.

 

Our role is to ensure that we keep abreast of the developments in broadcast lighting so we can offer an up to date consultancy service. By working closely with the end user we can design a system that meets their needs precisely. Then, in many cases our customers prefer to deal direct with the manufacturers of lighting equipment . Projects Department can offer assistance in this area and can negotiate on your behalf with the suppliers of your choice to ensure the most appropriate product is offered at the best price.

 

Our years of experience and close links with all of the lighting system manufacturers ensure that you are always being offered the best solution for your needs.

 

Alternatively, Projects Department can extend a full turnkey solution and supply, install and commission the complete system.

Project management

Using our many years of experience working closely with other trades involved in your project we can ensure a smooth installation.

 

The coordination of all of the aspects concerned with the fitting out of an entertainment lighting system can be complex. Not only does the installation of the lighting system need to be performed in an orderly manner but the integration of the lighting systems with all the other aspects that make up the venue need to be carefully integrated.

 

With our many years of project management experience and by working closely with the other trades involved we can ensure that the correct products arrive on site at the most opportune moment ready to be installed in sequence.

Site supervision

We offer the services of our experienced site supervisors to oversee the work of your contractors.

 

Once your lighting system has been delivered the installation will be paramount to a successful project. Whether you are using your own installation contractor or have engaged the services of Projects Department, it will be vital to have good site supervision to ensure the work progresses in an orderly manner and in line with your requirements.

 

We can offer the services of our experienced site supervisors to oversee the work of your contractors or in the case of our own installation team these supervisors are naturally included.

Installation services

For simple installations we can brief your own installation contractor in the most appropriate installation methods to ensure a trouble free installation.

 

For larger projects or where you wish to use our own installation team we can offer the services of fully trained electricians and mechanical fitters.

 

The installation of a lighting system can be a relatively simple task. However, there are a number of factors to be considered to ensure a trouble free and successful installation. These include factors such as sight lines for the audience, ensuring signal segregation to eliminate noise and not least compliance with the relevant regulations.

 

For simple installations we can brief your own installation contractor in the most appropriate installation methods to ensure a trouble free installation.

 

For larger projects or where you wish to use our own installation team we can offer the services of fully trained electricians and mechanical fitters. All of our installation work is conducted in line with the relevant European regulations and we will additionally take into consideration any local regulations that are applicable.

 

Finally we complete our installation with the issue of "as built" drawings.

Theatre lighting

Although we specialize in television lighting we recognize theatre lighting is completely different. Our experience of theatre lighting is extensive and as such we are able to offer all of the services mentioned in connection with your theatre project.

 

Theatre lighting is similar in many ways to television but then again is worlds apart. It is important to recognize that they are different and as such we treat them as different industries.

 

Although we specialize in television lighting, our experience of theatre lighting is extensive and as such we are able to offer all of the services mentioned in connection with your theatre project.

 

We are able to supply a single luminaire, replacement lamp or roll of colour gel right through to a complete design for a theatre lighting system.
