We begin by providing you with an initial fee proposal for your project. This will help with your budgeting and to ensure we can work within your time-frames. Once this has been agreed to, an initial meeting will be set up with our lighting designer either onsite or in our Design Studio. Our rates start from $150 per hour plus GST. To ensure optimal design results it's most important that the design is done at the very beginning of a project and before electrical first fix. Commercial and high-end domestic projects are our specialty, and with years of experience in lighting and design we will work with you to achieve great results. DRUM-AMBIENTE-1    
  • Step 1 - Prepare and Presentation of Design Concept
In your initial meeting, our designer will review your plans and discuss the project in detail with you. The aim of this first meeting is to determine as much information as possible about the project including furniture layouts and your specific requirements. The more information provided at this stage, the better the lighting will be.
  • Step  2 - Detailed Plans and Specification
After the initial meeting, the lighting designer will prepare a full set of lighting plans, a specification and detailed BCA calculations, based around our own collection of fittings. This would include all the light fittings, lamps, transformers, drivers and controls. This typically takes around 15 working days from receipt of all relevant information. We work around our extensive range of fittings, many of which are design in-house and manufactures to our own specifications.The specification and plans include full technical information of what is required on a room-by-room, circuit-by-circuit basis. They detail the exact location of all the fittings, the type of lamps,along with its transformer/driver and control details. With every lighting design scheme, we provide a table showing Building Regulations Part J compliance, which can be submitted to your buildings office. However it is the client's responsibility to confirm the degree of energy efficiency that is required prior to commencing any work.
  • Step 3 - On-going Site Visits and Revisions
We normally liaise with your electrical contractor and we will answer any queries they may have regarding the scheme. The designer would be happy to visit site during the first/second fix stage and this would be charged at our normal hourly rate as detailed in any fee proposal. We will ensure that we coordinate with the rest of the design team to incorporate changes. Revisions will be charged at the hourly rate for design time and for marking up of the plans.
  • Step 4 - Order management and delivery
Whenever you are ready, our experienced Customer Services team will take your order and answer any technical questions you may have to ensure a smooth installation. All orders are bagged up at our Despatch Centre on a circuit by circuit, room by room basis for ease of installation on site. This saves time making life easier for your electrician.
  • Step  5 - Installation
Depending on your location, we can also recommend a qualified electrician who is familiar with our fittings and arrange for a quotation for installation. We strongly advise the use of an approved electrician to ensure an accurate and cleanly-fitted installation.

Commissioning the scheme

They will ensure all lamps and lenses are used to the best advantage and help set up a control system if installed. The same hourly rates apply. What to bring to a design studio appointment
  • Reflected ceiling plans (preferably at 1:100) and cabinetry drawings.

Hi Jill, Firstly, I would like to thank so much for your assistance with the lighting plan for our new home. It made both of us feel quite excited about the project again as it had been dragging on for so long. It injected a new lease of life into it. Loved all of your suggestions and advice and came out with something totally different than what we planned but thrilled with the concepts and potential the new lighting would add to our new home.

One of the better things that happened to us when we were building our new home, was finding Jillian Pool of Creative Lighting in Eltham. The architect did a great job of our plans which we took to Jill and spent a considerable period of time with her discussing all aspects of the electrical work - not just the lighting, but placement of power points, switches, fans, provision for outdoor power and lighting with a view to security, etc, etc. This included automatic light sensing (pantry, walk-through areas) and a myriad of things that we didn't even know we had to consider. Our builder (who in this instance will remain nameless) scoffed at the incredibly detailed electrical plan provided by Jill, stating that all we needed was lights in a straight line and all would be good. Are we glad we insisted on them sticking to the plan! For instance, kitchens are always a bit of a bugbear, given that the worst thing to happen in having to work in your own shadow. The solutions and plan provided by Jill are the envy of our friends! We are tickled pink we found Jill and Creative Lighting!
