WHY WORK WITH DFL?
A poorly designed lighting solution can lead to more questions than answers from clients. This can bring delay and additional cost to your project. The quickest way to get the project built is with the right solution. We have worked on single residential schemes to give the homeowner the house of their dreams and right up to some of the largest development and infrastructure projects in the country. We will take you from where you are now, to a detailed scheme that will give you and your clients the answers you need, and provide support throughout the project.
We pride ourselves on delivering the most innovative and cost-effective lighting solutions for your project. Our lighting designs aim to minimise energy, capital and maintenance costs using relevant British or international standards. Our designers provide best value for the design of street lighting layouts and cable networks using the latest technological and innovative advice.
Quality! Every time.
Quick fixes and corner cutting are not our thing. If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing properly. So that is what we’ll do. Every time. No ifs, no buts.
We are not big on doing things because that’s the way they have always been done. We have decades of lighting experience in our team and we will use that to create the best designs possible for you. Whether it has been done before or not.
We are not beholden to any suppliers or manufacturers. The only money we receive is the fees we get from you. We like it that way as it gives us the freedom to give you completely unbiased advice and the best independent solutions.
You have deadlines to meet too – we understand that. So, we will always be clear about what we can deliver and when. Then we will stick to it. You can depend on us.
We are on hand to assist with all types of exterior or interior lighting. If lighting is needed, we can design it.
Our experienced engineers have a wealth of knowledge and offer advice on all aspects of Lighting Design.
If you need it lit, we can help. We won’t needlessly charge you for help, we will work with you to explore the issues and how we can add value to the projects you’re working on. Don’t worry though, if we can’t help, we will always be honest with you. The best thing to do is get in touch, but if you want to look around our site first below are some of the other lighting services we offer to our clients.
S278/S38 LIGHTING DESIGN
This is our bread and butter, where we can really show our value. Yes, we will charge you a nominal fee for the design, and yes others may offer you a design for free. But we are impartial, and our value comes from saving you money. To achieve this, we only put lighting where lighting is needed and often by saving just one or two columns the install cost covers the cost of our fee.
No job too big. Large complex highway infrastructure projects, no problem. We are the lighting specialist, and we can back that up with specialist highway electrical design too. We have over 20 years’ experience working on major networks such as the M25 and A303, M2 A47 and many more. We seamlessly integrate with our client teams to deliver cutting edge smart lighting solutions.
Let’s make it shine! This is where we can get really creative. Lighting in the public realm can transform spaces into centrepieces. We have worked on many schemes where we have taken public spaces and designed a lighting scheme to create a night-time attraction, bringing with it benefits for the local economy. This can be dancing light or even lighting that tells a story. We have done this for some of the busiest shopping streets in the UK right through to market squares that have a real community focus.
We have created some skills sheets to outline our services and how we can assist you with your projects. Whether this be with Smart Consultancy or Light Impact Assessments we hope you will find these useful in further understanding what we do and how we can assist you.
We work on a diverse range of projects including Mass LED upgrades and Architectural Lighting Designs. We also deliver highly acclaimed sensitive lighting schemes and are well regarded within the industry for our lighting impact assessments. Below are just some of the schemes we have recently completed.
