Project Planning

Do you need a lighting design before tender?

While you can go to tender stage without a lighting design, there are many reasons why it is preferable to have a design mapped out prior to this.

Having a lighting design in place ensures that a contractor can accurately price the project, which is of course a significant benefit.

If you don’t have a lighting design, there is a strong chance that the lighting scheme will change or develop, and this will inevitably lead to higher costs and delays.

It’s also important to remember that if you are working on a very short programme and need the work completed quickly, then having a lighting design in place before going to tender will aid progression and ensure the project runs smoothly.
