Lighting Impact Assessment
Lighting impact assessments are crucial to the environmental impact of any development on their location.
How a neighbourhood will be impacted by light from the proposed development and associated construction work is vitally important – and governed by a series of protocols and legislative requirements.
Our experienced lighting impact consultants can help guide you through the laws and practicalities around safe, secure and environmentally friendly lighting plans.
We will help you develop lighting arrangements that are unobtrusive to neighbours and ecology friendly with our keen focus on ecology and sustainability.
Our Lighting Assessments are carried out in accordance with relevant local planning policies, British Standards and guidance from the Institution of Lighting Professional’s (PLG 04, GN01 and GN08) to ensure the assessment follows best practice.
Our experienced team of engineers have exceptional levels of knowledge and offer advice on all aspects of Lighting Design from concept through to producing full design packages to meet our clients’ specifications.
We offer extensive experience in report writing covering both the details of the lighting, sensitivity of the local ecology and how best the overall lighting strategy might affect the development.
