Lighting Matters offers a Free Lighting Plan Design service for new residential builds.
Why does one need a Lighting Design Plan?
A lighting design is required to make sure you get the correct lighting components supplied for your home that ensures you meet new building code requirements and an appropriate amount of light for any particular area.
Building Code of Australia - Recent changes to the BCA make it more difficult to use cheap low efficacy lighting in homes. The easiest way to overcome this is by using high efficiency LED lights. Positioning and using the correct beam angles and the correct amount of light will substantially reduce the amounting of light fixtures in a room, but provide typically more light, with uniform spread and potentially use up to 90% less electricity.
Choosing the right light for the room - Often we’ve seen houses that are filled to the brim with down lights, along with this comes a lot of unnecessary light and a huge power bill. There are also some homes which simply don’t have enough light or incorrectly positioned providing harsh shadowing over work areas. By completing a professional lighting design from Lighting Matters we take everything you tell us into consideration. Advancements in LED lighting technology allow us to put light in spaces that previous could not be achieved.
Customised Lighting Solutions - Not everyone has worked with LED technology. We on the other hand have only worked with LED lights since day one of our existence. Having this experience means we can provide sound advice about colour temperature choices for particular finishes, which switch plates and dimmers will work together with each recommended LED lighting product. We can customise LED strip lighting solutions, or match downlight fascia colours to fit your decor. We offer a degree of professionalism that you won’t get from anybody else.
How will the Lighting Design Plan be put to use?
The lighting plan in it’s final form should provide your builder or electrician an accurate layout to follow whilst completing the build. It will provide the installer with a reference point for cabling and which lights will be controlled by each switching point. It can be used in conjunction with dimmable circuits, and reflect power points and other devices. The plan will also contain product types and variations used for different areas - a key component of proper lighting design.
What are the primary benefits of a Lighting Plan?
At the end of the journey you’ll end up with a comprehensive understanding of lighting and LED technology, a digital overlay lighting plan along with legend and product variants, a quotation for any products that Lighting Matters can supply and ongoing technical support until the building has been completed.
