CPStudio; approach

Here to provide inspirational solutions to new or existing schemes. Will specify using trusted UK based lighting companies as well as design individual fittings if required. I am strongly aware of using daylight and work by enhancing and directing into interiors, also the use of low energy lighting - so improved and good colour rendering - all leads towards a low energy and economical out come.

For individual and corporate clients.

Design Process

Stage 1: Preliminary services
(approximately RIBA design stages A and B)
First, the client's requirements are discussed, including timescale, financial limits, scope of services and terms of appointment.
A lighting design brief can then be formulated if required.

Stage 2:Concept design
(approximately RIBA design stage C)
This involves the presentation of an outline lighting scheme in the form of visuals, outline luminaire information, typical layouts, budgets,
 electrical loads, running costs and energy-saving strategies.

Stage 3:Detailed design development
(approximately RIBA design stages D-F)
When the client has chosen a concept, we develop it into detailed specifications and drawings. Maintenance, energy and installation costs are
calculated, and compliance with legislation is examined.
Stage 4: Detailed design, production and tender actions
(approximately RIBA design stages G and H)
At this stage the preparation of tender documentation begins. We support the client and answer any queries or questions;
 interview contractors and assist the client with appointments.

Stage 5: Construction, focussing, programming and commissioning
(approximately RIBA design stages J-L)
At this point we review progress on-site to make sure that all is going according to plan. When the installation is complete,
we focus the adjustable light fittings and programme any lighting controls.

In addition, Charlotte Packe provides remedial, trouble-shooting and crisis management consultancy on pre-existing lighting projects.
 This is usually undertaken on an hourly rate.
