What is commercial lighting?

Commercial lighting refers to the lighting systems installed within buildings used for business purposes. These premises could be office blocks, retail spaces, hospitality businesses – and many more. Commercial lighting can take many forms – depending on the design and function of your building – and can encompass both interior and exterior installations.

Why is commercial lighting important?

Commercial lighting is incredibly important, as it can help to bring to life both the interior and exterior of your building, taking your design to another level. This is crucial in attracting customers, creating an ambience and making the most of a space. Good lighting can lift peoples’ moods, and can make them want to spend time in your building. High quality commercial lighting is also of practical importance; the latest technologies can help to save energy and running costs.

What is the process that Harled follow?

First, we provide a free survey to our prospective customers, which can help them to understand their current systems, as well as what an optimal system could help them achieve. These are no-obligation visits to your commercial space, and include our advice on how you could improve your lighting system.

Upon official appointment, we can then provide a full lighting design service from start to finish. This includes project management throughout the process, taking any stresses and tasks away from our clients. In the briefing stage, we encourage our clients to give us as much information as possible about their commercial space – including their ideas, goals and objectives. We involve our clients as much or as little as they’d like throughout the process, but we always aim to work off your feedback and business goals.

In the design stage, our experienced commercial team will produce high-quality CAD drawings of your proposed lighting system. We also provide detailed 3D visuals of all our designs, so that you can see what it will look like in your space. We will then work with you until you are fully happy with the design.

Recommendations on installers

Harled lighting can fully design your lighting system from start to finish. And, when you’re happy with our design, it’s time to arrange its installation. We regularly work with a range of lighting installation companies, many of which specialise in the commercial lighting sector. Depending on the nature of work and industry you work within, we can recommend the best installation company for the job.

Energy calculations and management

Here at Harled, we specialise in energy efficiency and savings. Before we start working with our clients, we can visit your commercial building free of charge and provide a free survey of your lighting set-up. This will include lighting calculations and advice on how to save energy through lighting in your building. You can then use this accurate information on cost savings, kWh and carbon usage to make informed designs on how to improve and manipulate your commercial lighting design to your advantage. We also offer calculations on energy payback, and can provide details on finance options for lighting renewals.
